Place has a great reputation but I was disappointed. I expected a better & larger menu, I had 3 shrimp for a shrimp cocktail, priced individually, they were large and expensive but delicious. I ordered the rubbed rib eye (didn't see a plain rib eye)...More

Waiter was very nice but management is very rude and could care less about customers. Food is average at best and so overpriced. If you are not a "regular" then you are out of luck.

Definitely overpriced. Steak costs around 40-50$$. I am a steak lover, but taste is not better then in a regular steakhouse. French fries are not so good, just OK. We enjoyed escargot, but oysters have not been fresh enough. Interior is very nice and inviting,...More

This is a excellent steak house, but expensive. Delicious breads, side dishes and steaks. Full bar is available.

I have been here twice and have enjoyed all the food. Both times I sat outside and it is a great ambiance. The patio is bigger than expected, and the highway is almost unnoticeable behind the beautiful landscaping. The restaurant is pretty too and all...More

Casual dress code, but just keep in mind steaks and lamb not quality prime cut meat. All side dishes are ala carte . Be prepared to spend money on average service and poor quality meat. Good luck!
