Very mediocre food. Didn't love the steak and the apps and salads weren't much better. The service was good. Atmosphere is dark and not much fun. It is overpriced and there are way too many other great options for steak in this area.

Thank goodness for Restaurant Week and I was able to eat here again. Yes, this place is very pricey but so worth it. From their appetizer to their dessert -- no complain at all. They are so busy, so reservation is a must.
