The experience already starts well when you enter and see this beautiful restaurant. It perfectly complements the great food and impressive wine selection. Only criticism was the extremely high air conditioning.

Great quality meat. Cooked ok. Great atmosphere. Service ok. If you want a place that looks and feels cool this is it. If you want a memorable meal. This is not it.

This place was nice. I enjoyed it. It's pretty typical American fare. I think it's done well, but it doesn't deserve 5/5. 4/5 is appropriate.
