My wife and I decided to go to Murray’s because we have always wanted to go there and because of its reputation. We were greeted when we walked in and they offered to check our coat as we were checking in. Our server Ricardo was an absolute delight, he made recommendations, he encouraged us to just sit back and enjoy the evening. We ordered the Silver Butter Knife Steak for two, it was the best steak I have ever had. The side dishes were delicious and the Lemon Pavlova dessert was perfect, my wife is a pastry chef and she gave the dessert an A+. The atmosphere was wonderful, inviting, and relaxed. The bar looked fantastic and we plan on visiting there soon.

My husband and I celebrate our birthdays at Murray's annually now (so, we get to go twice per year). The food is amazing, the service top-notch, and we can have a conversation without raising our voices or yelling. We love Murray's!

I have no idea what "Noise Level" means. Do I give a high rating for low noise, or for high noise?

We were going to be seated at a table and I asked if we could have a booth, so they took us to the back of the restaurant close to the kitchen door. I almost asked for a different booth and wish I had. Everytime the kitchen door opened, it was distracting and a cool breeze chilled my ankles. I was wearing a dress. I will NEVER accept that booth again. Our server Slim was fantastic and so was the food. We were celebrating our anniversary and he brought us dessert, on the house.

Murray’s is a special treat! You do not find many restaurants these days with impeccable service, amazing food and a warm environment! I love that it has been in the family for decades, it is not a chain restaurant! I highly recommend the experience!

There were six of us. Four had the butter knife steak and loved it. One had scallops and loved them. I had a peppercorn crusted 26 oz porterhouse. It was a little dry. I ordered it medium well. The server did ask if I wanted peppercorns on the side as it was such a large steak and I declined. Perhaps that made a difference. It was still delicious, just the texture was a bit dry. I’ve had a smaller ribeye ordered the same way many times and it was perfect. All of the sides were delicious and the service impeccable. I know my steak was a fluke. I love this restaurant and I’ll be back. Oh yeah, they mix great cocktails too!

Crab cakes, lemon artichoke-spinach risotto and the lemon Paviola desert were exceptional. The server, Dani, was awesome. Unfortunately, the one thing that they should be known for, the steak, was just average. Great tasting, but poorly cooked. Both steaks in the party of two, were undercooked.

Mashed potatoes were cold. Steak was ok to say the least. Asparagus was bland and alcoholic beverage had zero alcohol.
