Restaurant is located in downtown Cincinnati and there is an overall fairly classy Art Deco mood about the place.
When you enter the restaurant, you are greeted by 2 very good looking and pleasant ladies which direct you to your reserved table. Even though we arrived right on time, we had to wait awhile to get seated. The reception desk faces 2 old, very well preserved and beautiful barbershop chairs.
As the name implies, the restaurant's specialty is beef, ranging from filets to huge boned steaks. The menu also offered some seafood. The days' special was Alaskan king crab legs, which 2 of us ordered, by the piece; they were excellent, even though on the short side with a heavy price. One of the other guests ordered a filet which was grilled as requested and very tender. All the side dishes have to be ordered separately.
The wine list was fairly extensive and carefully chosen but with a very stiff price attached to it. We ordered a rather passable Californian merlot, recommended by the maitre, which was absurdly priced, value wise. The waiter kept filling our wine glasses to the brim, quite annoying and unpleasant since it did not let the wine breathe adequately in the glass; he was obviously trying to push a second bottle; otherwise the service was quite good.
The restaurant was crowded, the long bar well stocked with all kinds of liquor and also jammed packed since there was a very good band playing that night. There is some kind of music entertainment apparently every night.
