“try the fish...”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

my BF got the prime rib (and loved it) but we just came from the marketplace and i could not possibly eat an entire prime rib. i went w the fish and it was also delish. great staff. old school traditional steak house atmosphere. if you like prime rib... or sea bass... check it out.

This is the granddaddy of these restaruants, prime rib is circulated on a cart and you can order several different sizes. The beef is great. This sides a delicious, creamed spinach, They also have Salmon..Service is very good.

“san francisco's ultimate in fine dining!”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Been taken here by my husbands boss twice now. I had never experienced anything like this place prior to going there. It is like a different world. My boss's husband easily has spent $200 per person at this place. Each entree begins at $60 and thats not including cocktails, drinks, dessert and wine. I had never eaten prime rib before this place. Everything is simply delectable from the food to the top notch service to the amazing ambience. We usually start out with martinis which are the strongest and finest I have ever had. After you get a comfortable buzz, they serve you warm melt in your mouth bread.. then there's an absolutely scrumptious salad.. followed by the finest cuts of meat and gravy, complete with resplendent sides. I have had mashed potatoes, baked with everything on it, yorkshire pudding, creamed spinach, creamed corn.. yummmmm... its the ultimate in fine dining.. and an absolute experience every time we go there!!!!

“Great food & great staff.”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

The prime rib was great- lots of flavor and very tender. All of the employees were friendly and attentive- from the bartender to the chef that carves the meat. There is no way you can leave this place hungry.
