This place is a good steak restaurant to celebrate any special occasion. It is expensive, but has variety of different steak available in addition to nice ambiance. I will choose either here or El Gaucho for steak in Seattle.

We had a reservation on a Friday night. It wasn't super busy but otherwise we may have had to wait for bit. My advice, play it safe and make a reservation.
