    The restaurant is under new management and under renovation. The food was very good, the service was very good and the deal they offered "a 2lb lobster, 14oz filet mignon, 2 salads, 2 sides, 2 deserts and coffee for $99.00". That's a good deal and the meal was great. I'll be back

    We went to dinner there on Saturday night and place was under construction. The waiter was new but try his best. We ordered the appetizer were good. We ordered the steaks ask for medium rare and it was over cooked. It was like chalk coal. We order the dessert and the apple crisp and the apples weren't cooked. That is why it is under new management. Next time I want to eat steak should go to Luger's. They know how to make steaks.

    The wait staff was rude. Our waitress tried to tell us (6 people) the dessert specials while one of our guests was speaking. The main waiter kept insisting that we did not order enough appetizers or sides. There was main course special (ordered by one guest) that was very, very, very expensive which we did not know until we saw the check. On Monday, a member of our party emailed the manager, Richard Dorney, who has not replied to this email. He was no where to be found upon leaving the restaurant.

    The evening was wonderful from the moment we arrived. The staff was attentive and helpful. The meal was divine. We started with wedge salads, then moved on to the main courses of porterhouse for 2, filet mignon, and salmon. One was more delicious that the next. It is certainly a place to visit again.

    We waited for our food. They gave us a non-acceptable answer that kitchen was backed up. The restaurant was quiet for a Saturday night. Spoke with manager. People who came after us were served before us. We complained some more to no avail. Will never go back. Didn't even have the smarts to offer us a dessert on them. Very poorly handled.

    This restaurant is re-inventing itself and the work is not finished so that final judgment has to be reserved. The food was still good as was the ambience. Noise level is still bordwerinbg on unsatisfactory,. Service was impeccable. The prices were out of sight and with a split salad, one drink , 3 sides, and a 3 small and 1 large sirloin the tab was $190 incl. tip for 2 people.. On a Sat night the place was half full ( or half empty depending on your point of view.) Compared to the many steak restaurants in the area I would still place it last on my list

    We visited while under construction but it didn't take away from the ambiance once seated. The wait staff is ultra friendly and all dressed in nice sport jackets. The menu boasts sushi and lots of seafood (raw/cocktail/cooked) choices. A great array of land and sea varieties. The side dishes deserve more mention as they were a hit at our table. Most notable, the hash browns and bacon. It was one of the best I've had and made differently than other steakhouses. The potatoes were crisp and crunchy like fries but cut into bite sized cubed pieces w/ generous bacon pieces to accompany them. Roasted mushrooms were perfectly seasoned. Our steak was the bone in Rib...very good, with or without their house sauce. Cooked perfectly.

    Sign said under new ownership. Obviously some minor renovations were being made. Steak was very good. Appetizers were OK. I ordered a dozen clams but got only half dozen. I felt it wasn't worth saying anything at that point. Service was rather slow considering the place was not crowded. Had to ask for more bread, considering the prices shouldn't have to ask. Have been here many times and steaks always bring me back. Service seems somewhat worse under "new ownership." Only hope they get themselves together soon.

    We went for the special which was good value. The food was good. The service...could not decide if all of the servers were new and nervous or just obnoxious but we did not get their humor. The food was OK but we will continue to go the short distance to Morton's where it is upscale, relaxed and elegant.

    The restaurant is under new ownership and they are renovating while open. The main dining room was lovely, and the food was wonderful. The service was good, though they seemed a bit pressured. I was impressed that they remembered (from my reservation) that we were celebrating a birthday, and I had asked for a candle in a dessert. (Most restaurants need a personal reminder.) The sushi rolls were delicious, and the steak was prepared perfectly. The sides were terrific, and the salads were enjoyable as well.

    This is one of a number of premium steakhouses on Northern Blvd's Steak Row, but well below the others. The steaks were no more than adequate for the price and overdone, with rare being served at medium rare, and medium rare at medium. The waiters, while well-meaning, were overly intrusive and irritatingly chummy -- clearly not trained. The hostess was also untrained and not even well meaning -- not even feigning a smile as we were greeted and seated. The room is ostentatious and distracting, with a widescreen TV at the bar facing directly into the main dining area and overly loud music piped in from above. I know now why I was able to get a reservation for Saturday on Saturday.

    The staff was super-friendly and courteous. Several signs point out they are under new ownership and that became obvious. Some servers were polished professionals and others seemed new. French Onion Soup and the "sushi special" (rice in a potato croquette topped with spicy tuna) were both delicious. A creamy potato soup arrived cold. One of us ordered sushi as an entree and they accidentally brought out that with the apps. For mains, one of us had steak which was "so so" another had the triple sliders plate -- which arrived cold and undercooked. All in all the food was above mediocre and service the same. Under the old ownership, this place was great and could be again. They just need to work out some kinks. Wine list was impressive though!

    We learned at dinner that it's under new ownership. We were impressed with the food and the service. The owner introduced himself to us and explained that he is renovating the restaurant. I am eager to see what he does. It's already a nice place but it needs new energy - hopefully the bar crowd will come back as well. I'd recommend it. The food was really very good. The wine is very over priced but that's typical of a NY steakhouse I guess.

    The restaurant is apparently going through a number of changes. That aside, the bread basket was worse than a diner, the service was adequate but not what I am used to and although the tuna was perfect as a dish, it was grossly overpriced. I will most likely give the place 1 more chance before moving on.

    It was a great experience for my wife, son and I. We are used to eating at top-notch restaurants, and we were not disappointed. The service was attentive, but not suffocating. Each request was meet with a smile, and willingness exceed our expectations. The portions were filling, but not so large that feel guilty leaving food on your plate, or stuffing yourself so as to keep up your membership in the "clean plate club".

    My Scallop appetizer with corn was superb, the Filet Mignon was magnificent and done just the way I asked. The only minus was our waiter who appeared to be unhappy to be there and annoyed that he was required to wait on us. I have been here many times and the staff is usually top notch so I was surprised. Perhaps he had a bad day😞

    We went here for our 40th wedding anniversary for our first time at this restaurant. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. My appetizer was something called a Kobe Rock, a small grill with a heated rock placed on the table on which I cooked thin slices of Kobe beef. Very tasty. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and had no fat or gristle. The side orders were of substantial size. The apple crisps were also substantial in size and very tasty. There was plenty of space between the tables. We felt very welcome.

    Everything was "good" BUT, when my party arrived there was nobody to seat or greet us at the door. In other words, no hostess. After a minute or so two young women appeared from the rear of the restaurant and did seat us. For an establishment of this price and ostensible class, this was unacceptable. Somebody should be available to seat/greet us immediately. This was a bad way to start an expensive dinner and UNACCEPTABLE.

  • Switched lobster
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 7/24/2014
    My husband ordered a lobster and wanted a 1lb one and they said ok. After he ordered it they told him they only have 2lb ones. He said ok. When the lobster came they gave him a 1 lb body and 2lb claws. They switched the claws on him. They were very tough. It was like they gave him different claws so that they can get to 2lbs for the additional cost. Restaurant empty and the food took over 25 minutes to get. Not interested to return. Supposedly under new ownership. Have been there in the past and used to be much better. Not impressed at all.

    Quality of steak - poor prime - however, if important to reader, cooked well. Maitre'd wished to race us thru our meal due to the quality of our jeans and t shirts: however, noticeable change in attitude occurred when we saw we all had AMEX - Black Cards., No reason to recommend this restaurant to anyone. Overall - given price level very disappointing experience. and definately will not return.
