I don't think I have ever had a bad meal there. Service is the best, on top of things but not "in your face". The filet's "melt in our mouth". Best in the city. Worth the price for sure.

We dined on Sunday night and enjoyed the experience. The venue is unique, the service was wonderful, the steaks were very good and the sides were average at best. We fell victim to the raging reviews on this site and may have set our expectations too high hoping for a culinary experience. Whereas we thoroughly enjoyed our meal, it did not parallel some other steakhouses we have visited in the community. My strip, though generous (about 14oz) contained more inedible than I would have preferred. My wife’s ribeye was the better cut of meat this particular evening. We enjoyed the Mayfair dressing on our salads, but as mentioned, the sides were less than impressive. The flash fried cubed potatoes looked like they should have been served on a breakfast dish. The desserts were hyped by our server to be made in-house and exceptional, though we found the cheesecake and the chocolate ganache cake to be just “ok”. Perhaps a signature item such as warm freshly baked bread, a special dessert or more creativity to the side dish options would better compliment the steak dinner as a destination. Brittany was our server and did a fabulous job. We disagreed with comments noted about the room being too loud, tables to close and not having linen tablecloths as we found none of those worthy of mention.

To celebrate our wedding anniversary we made a 5:00 PM reservation. We were the first party to be seated in our requested area, upstairs at a window table (hint). Staff was excellent and attentive without being intrusive. Citizen Kane’s filet mignon steak is 9oz. of deliciousness perfection. The salad with Mayfair dressing was fresh and flavorful. The side of roasted green beans were tasty. We have visited CK’s many times over the previous 15 years and have never been disappointed. Highly Recommend.

This is probably the best steak I have ever had. I had the New York Strip and it was prepared perfectly. The service was great, everyone was very attentive. I will be going back.

They really know how to cook steaks. Was really impressed how everything was just right. The steak was cooked to perfection, not over charred, and it just melted in the mouth. Desserts were good too.
