It was a wonderful experience and the atmosphere was lovely. Upon looking up this restaurant, open table states it’s $30-$50 a person but it’s actually $70-$100 per person, so that would have been nice to know before going. Still a very nice time and the food was great.

This restaurant is usually excellent, however this time they slipped a little.
The waiter would not provide a half order on our appetizer in the past they would.
The bread came awhile after our drinks and appetizer.
The preparation was always outstanding, this night we ordered medium on our bone in rib-eye and it was served very rare, since we had asked to share and slice we decided not to request a redo.
We will go back but as I mentioned earlier it was not their usual excellence.

Eat here periodically. Service, food and value are consistently excellent. For a restaurant long in business, these standards are not easily maintained. Highly commendable.

Only problem for me is given my health, age and COVID situation, I can only dine outside. Hopefully situation will change sooner rather than later.

Only complaint was the blue cheese salad dressing on the Abe and Louies salad. The dressing wasn’t blue cheese. That was disappointing but our steaks and the scallop potatoes were delicious as were the cocktails of which they do no skimp. Very good restaurant and service. We’re from San Francisco so we’re familiar with fine dining, this gives any restaurant in SF a huge run for their
money.

Service was fantastic. Wine list is great and our bottle was delicious. Seafood (clams and oysters) were great. However, our steaks and lamb were way over cooked. Medium became medium well for the lamb, which was a big downer, for example. Meats were of very high quality, but the finishing was not satisfactory.

We’re there for brunch. Wife had the French toast and I had the crab Benedict- both of which were good. The clam chowder was off the charts good - 1 of the best I’ve ever had! Service was impeccable (as should be expected of an establishment like this.)
