We dined here for Restaurant week. Service was very good (Thanks to Jason!)
We started with the Beef Tartar apetizer. I've never tried this and it was completely different than what I thought it would be. It was kind of like a pate in consistancy, the beef was ground with spices and had a tiny quail egg on top. Not something I would ever order on my own, very rich, but I did enjoy the one little bite I tried. I had the salad for my first course, followed by the petite filet. The salad was good-a nice light vinagrette dressing. The filet was very good and cooked perfectly. Just the right amount of char on the outside, but still rare inside as I had requested. My husband had the Kobe beef-I thought this was rather gamey tasting, almost like an exotic meat, but it was cooked to perfection. The vegetables were "al dente" but we did not like them. They tasted like basically raw veggies that had been made hot. You dont' go to cowboy star for the veggies though! Deserts were just okay-not a lot of flavor and definitely not rich. Lemon cake was dry and the bread pudding was bland. Our dining companions ordered the cheese plate for desert, which everyone raved about being wonderful. Atmophere was great-just what you would want from a steak place-rich leather booths, low lighting-lovely place. For restaurant week we paid $40 for the 4 courses (starter, main and dessert) and they gave a complimentary amuse bouche. I was going to just order off the menu, as I can't eat dessert, but just for a steak it was more than the price of the restaurant week-a real bargain.
