If you want to eat and be treated like a King, this is your place. First of all, you must dress for the occasion. Dark jeans with a nice top and shoes can suffice, but don't be bringing your sneakers in here- you certainly won't fit in if they let you past the door! The wine list is impressive here though pricey. You basically have to order steak here. My two favorite steaks are the Delmonico and the Kona Rub steak. Both are absolutely phenomenal. You order your sides separate here. For sides I enjoy the mashed potatoes and the lobster mac & cheese. By the time dessert rolls around you should be far too stuffed for any (if you ordered the right way). But don't forget about the bill, they tend to be pretty hefty here so don't forget your credit cards!!

We thought this was the best of several steakhouses we have tried in Boston. The atmosphere and decor was traditional, dark wood paneling. This and the food were much better than we'd expected from a chain restaurant.
Although it is inside the Hynes Center, it can be entered from Boylston Street.
We both started with the spinach salad served with bacon, chopped egg and mushrooms- excellent. This left room for the large and very tasty main courses: a 10oz filet mignon and double rib lamb chops, but we were too full for desserts.
We thought the cost to be good value for a superb meal of its type.

Hosted a party here for 35 people in one of their private dining rooms. I've done these events throughout the country, and this may have been my best experience ever. The food was absolutely delicious, and they accommodated the one vegan, one gluten-free, and one vegetarian member of our party beautifully. Most of us had the kona filet mignon that melted in our mouths, but I hear the sea bass was amazing too.

What's nice for a group dinner is that you can opt to have the appetizers, desserts, and side dishes served family or party style in the center of tables. This makes for a convivial, social atmosphere. The appetizer tower of seafood with lobster showcased, and sides of crab cakes and steak tartare to pass around the tables were all a wonderful start to the meal. Service staff was just terrific. I can't recommend this place highly enough to anyone looking for a venue near the Hynes Convention Center to host a group of 30-40 people. I find it is hard to find restaurants for a group this size that aren't in hotels with lousy food and sterile environments. This is an intimate setting with fantastic food -- great for any business looking to impress.

Went there on the restaurant week. I really loved their steak. Tenderness and everything. I think it's worth going there even on regular priced days.
