The restaurant was awesome at making our anniversary feel special. They even let me drop off our wine a few hours ahead and kept it cool for us. The steaks were awesome (I recommend either Ribeye option), and the ambience is pretty good. I won't...More

Took our two teens for a fancy dinner here after an appointment in Los Gatos. Seemed pretty formal, but also saw people dressed fairly casually. They have a nice wine list and knowledgeable sommelier. It would be a lovely place for a date, but was...More

One of the better filets I've tasted. My husband loves their creamed spinach and he always attempts to get double orders. He also finds their New York strips to be very good. The service was excellent and I'd go back.

We had diner on a Sunday evening with reservations and were seated immediately. Forget the price, it is well worth it. The filet can be cut with a fork, the sides (creamed spinach and asparagus) were delicious and the Chocolate Pot-au-Creme was to die for....More

Steaks are good, but not exceptional. Prices are way too high for the quality, especially when they nickel and dime ( or $5 and $10 ) for the basic side dishes.
