Been there twice and both times disappointed. Steak was mediocre, ambiance is just a really dark repainted diner and the place just didn't have that steakhouse "personality". When in the mood for steak will pay a little extra and go for one of the higher...More

Although the service and quality of good was very good. I feel the value was below par. I ordered the veal chop and my wife had the petite filet. The filet advertises a 6oz cut but to be honest it looked more like a 3...More
