It had a nice atmosphere and the food was ok but the service was terrible and too expensive in my opinion, I’ve eaten in better places for a similar pay.

Really excellent steak house. Traditional dark wood low light atmosphere. Maybe the best ribeye bone in ever certainly in the top 3. If you are not ready NYC pricing you may want to have an attitude adjustment because this is expensive but worth it.
