Listed hours on website says closes at 10:30. Listed hours on door says 9:30 M-F. They were closed 9:15 on Valentine's Day. Hours posted should be changed. Very disappointed.

Chicago, the one-time hog butcher of the world, is known as a town for steakhouses. If you can't find a quality steakhouse in Chicago--or a dozen of them--you aren't looking. So it figures that the national steakhouse chains would try to woo their share of...More

Poor service: the waiter was very clumsy while attending a few tables. Forgot to deliver the cutlery, it was not attentive. In addition, the food was poorly prepared, the pork ribs was burnt.More
