Stopped for lunch whilst exploring the city - it was really nice. The staff are all really friendly & helpful, even recommended some places to visit in the city. Lots of choice on the menu & reasonably priced. I would recommend the burger.

Our meal was in a separate room we had about 25 people in our group. The meal was well paced, giving us ample time to socialize. There was a good selection of beer, wine and mixed drinks. The food was well prepared and served correctly....More

I really like this location (15th St) for lunch and happy hour. Great, freshly-prepared, high-quality meal options and attentive service, and not expensive (for a steakhouse). We just never enjoy dinner here. Part of it is the ambiance - there are fewer patrons at dinner...More

Our first dinner here in five years. Excellent steak and fries. Good Caesar salad and desserts, especially the apple caramel pastry. Excellent service. But over $100 for a steak for two without any sides? Felt overpriced to us.

Had a nice steak dinner here. Got delicious shrimp cocktail and the Cajun ribeye as recommended by a very helpful and attentive waiter Oscar. Would definitely recommend!

Our party of five visited on Thursday, April 20 and sat outside. We were seated promptly and the service was wonderful. You feel very "cared for" given the number of staff tending to you. As for the food, it was quite good -- nothing extraordinary,...More

I had an excellent french onion soup and fillet mignon with bearnaise sauce. The steak was beautifully crispy on the outside and nice and succulent on the inside. Beautifully aged and tender. Great unobtrusive attention from the service staff.
