Have eaten dinner here a few times now and has always been great. Good location. Had the bison bone marrow which was good. Toast could have been more toasty.... the Manhattan steak was great!

Located in the Radisson Blu Downtown which was where I was staying. This was a great place to eat after a long travel day that did not require getting out and looking for something close. Food and service were both great.

There was an area at the back of the restaurant that I think could seat 30 and be kind of secluded... it also kind of spills into the lobby of the hotel so might be a fun atmosphere !
