Service remarquable et attentionné, la cuisine est simple et efficace mais cela ne justifie pas un tarif un peu trop élevé.

Came here with my wife for her birthday. We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation and they were able to accommodate us right away and gave us a nice table by the fireplace. Our server was so nice and explained everything on the menu and took his recommendation of the porterhouse and it was one of the best steaks we’ve ever had because they dry age their own steaks. Would highly recommend coming here and we can’t wait to come back!

Had Christmas dinner here last night, food was delicious and service was impeccable. The only negative was the hour long wait to be seated after our 8pm reservation.

Would visit again.

Was on time for my 630 reservation was made to wait 45 minutes for a table. Was sat by the kitchen doors upstairs in a dark corner our waiter disappeared for long stretches. I ordered a 335.00 bottle of wine and had to ask for a decanter and the waiter never brought my after dinner drink. I've been going here for over 15 years on my bday and this will probably be the last time.

Steak was terribly undercooked; service was great. I ordered medium rare; I got Pittsburgh rare. ("A Pittsburgh rare steak is one that has been heated to a very high temperature very quickly, so it is charred on the outside but still rare or raw on the inside.") When I complained, a manager took it back but the result was not a new steak cooked to the requested temperature; instead, the restaurant simply placed the steak I had cut up and consumed part of back onto the grill for additional time. This seems unsanitary and it was ineffective as it simply charred the outside further but did not change the underlying temperature of the meat inside. The server was exceptional and offered to buy me a drink, etc. But if you like steak cooked medium rare or better, I would choose a different place to go. If you like Pittsburgh rare, then this is your spot. Service was top-notch. Such a shame.

This is a very good place for women to take out their colleagues or friends. Women are treated with great respect here. Of course, all the measurements by which we judge a restaurant were outstanding. I really liked the environment, traditional and modern at the same time. As expected, the food was innovative and wonderful.

The wedge salad was of a quality you could make at home.

The steak was fine.

The mushrooms were dry and tasteless- probably the worst I’ve had at a steak restaurant. Same with the peas and onions.

And the service was bad to the point of comical.

Aside from that, a great experience.
