An older style steakhouse with oak panels and great steak. There's lots to be said about a place with aged steak cooked perfectly along with simple but ample side dishes. Fairly pricey but worth every penny.

Very raffinate restaurant, with top-quality food. Staff is awesome. Prices are very high but in line with the rank of the service. The place is always crowded, so the reservation is recommended.More

Restaurant was packed. So the table for 4 taht we had in the middle of the room was a little uncomfy and tiny. Appetizers were good. I can recommend the Calamari... tender and flavorful. The bottle of Cab was good as well. The rest was...More

Very good place. Warm environment which can go from semi-formal to formal. You must have the meat, filet is tender and properly cooked. The service is quite good as well.
