A safe, reliable dining experience with just enough variety and new items so as to always be assured of being able to try something new. Have never had a bad meal at this chain.

Refined, delicate, great service, amazing 24 oz porterhouse steak, a+ cheesecake and everyone else on the table were as happy as I was. Definitely going back!

Quiet and relaxing setting. Impressive level of service provided. I had the steak fillet which was okay, but the black truffle chips were just outstanding! Perfectly fried with an excellent crunch, not oily and simply delicious. Yes the fries was the star on my plate.
