    Dined on 2/13/2010
    The quality of food was excellent although there was nothing especially interesting about the way it was prepared. This is not the place for a foodie who wants interesting flavors and presentation. It's just basic food well prepared. Portions are large and prices are too. Frankly, we only dined here again because we had gift certificates which helped pay for a large part of the meal. It was Valentine's weekend so service was not quite as good as on previous visits, but it was not bad. It's good, but I would not go and pay the full price myself. For the money, I'd rather go for a more interesting chef.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006

    The food was Ruth Chris Standard. The service is not quite Ruth Chris. May be my standards are a little high. I expected a little more attentiveness and better service. We ordered the cowboy ribeye without blue cheese crumbs, we forgot the tomato and onions have blue cheese on it, but the server did not mention it even when i said i don't like blue cheese on anything when she mentioned blue cheese on the steak. They did fix it, but I was disappointed as it has to be fixed...

    Fabulous - as always. Perfectly cooked steaks, great side dishes. I highly recommend it! I took my husband for his birthday for this particular visit and they had birthday confetti on the table for him. The servers address you by name which is a nice touch and they check on you frequently without being annoying :-) 5 stars all the way.

    Once past the front desk the service becomes five star. But those at that desk, usually a male and three females, are unwelcoming, unfriendly, and rather disinterested. They should be the ones parking cars, and bring in the valet service fellows to do the welcoming. And although one has a reservation for a specific time, usually you are still forced to "wait in the bar" fifteen to thirty minutes for your table or booth. But once seated, things improve considerably. It is the start of the evening that needs more attention; first impressions do count.

    We started our night with a drink at the bar, while waiting for our table. Once seated, my fiance had the Piesporter Riesling but found it a bit dry for her tastes (she strongly prefers sweet wines). I had the Red Blend, which was very gratifying. She loved the Lobster Bisque and I had the BBQ Shrimp, which was nice. We each had the Filet (Medium Rare) and both could be sliced with a butterknife! Extremely tender and flavorful. Complimenting our main course, we ordered the Sweet Potato Casserole (wonderful!), Potato Au Gratin (was luke warm when served), and the Sauteed Spinach (blah). For dessert, the creme brulee put the finishing touch on our night out. Worst part of the evening? The fire alarm went off 4 times during dinner.

Everything was great and cooked perfectly. Service was impeccable. This is a definite special occasion place as dinner, wine, and dessert for 2 cost us $150+. I feel there are comparable if not better steakhouses in Orlando that would be a little easier on the pocket.
