Best steak 🥩 in the world. Impeccable service. Very expensive, but worth every penny. We ate at the original which was within walking distance of our motel.

Had 8 oz filet. Was done perfectly and truffle butter put it over the top. The sides were great and large enough to share except for the potatoes au gratin which was the best and cheesiest I have had. The cheesecake made a nice finale.
