We have dined at the octagon several times over the years as we live in the area. The onion soup is excellent. The Caesar salad prepared at tableside is quite pricy but tasty. The large shrimp cocktail are the largest I've seen as well as the costliest. They are however delicious and well worth the price for a special occasion.... More

$18 lobster bisque!!! Here's the hidden truth, cheat and use flour as opposed to fresh ingredients like cream. For an upscale restaurant serving cold mashed potatoes is really not acceptable. It tasted like powdered potatoes. The steak (porterhouse and filet mignon) was not a good slab of meat. Not to mention they didn't cook the meat properly. Octagon is good... More

I love this place, it's very chic and classy but I don't think it's good for little kids. It's a very high end restaurant.

Visited recently to celebrate a family birthday. Quite busy for a Sunday evening - nevertheless service was attentive and efficient. The Octagon is definitely an old school steakhouse. Lots of wood, fireplace and warm interior. The Caesar salad is an absolute must - prepared at your table and absolutely delicious. I was a little disappointed with my steak on this... More

Visited here with my husband to celebrate my birthday. This place never disappoints us - the staff is very attentive, and the food is always great. We had a seafood platter for two and everything was delicious except the lobster. The claws were not cooked through and tasted raw. Everything else was impeccable. Our waiter was very busy with few... More

The white Table Cloths, a sign of cleanliness and detail was my first... More

This has to be one of the best steak houses I've ever been to. The service is exceptional & the food was awesome! You get a lot of food for the price, everyone took home a doggy bag. If you like garlic bread, you will love theirs it's so garlicky. YUM!!

Had a lovely meal with 11 colleagues in one of the private rooms, upstairs. The Cesar Salad was excellent, the steak was cooked to perfection and the Creme Brulee was so good I had to have it twice. Great wine selection and great service. We tried the Giribaldi Barolo which was excellent. The whole experience certainly makes you feel special.
