Steak | Central Scottsdale, Scottsdale

Last Saturday it was as good as it gets. The restaurant being packed at 7:15, fortunately, we had Opentable reservations which worked out perfectly as it always does. We were seated in a spacious booth in Alex's (server) station. Always service at it's best with him. Ordered our cocktails while reviewing the menu. My dining partner and I are always creatures of habit, ordering the same thing, this time around we opted for a couple different items. Of course you can't go wrong here with the traditional steakhouse Shrimp Cocktail. I wanted to try the Sweet Chili Calamari, a new choice for us. Entrees were the 16 oz. New York Strip, the Petite Filet and as a side the Signature Tower of Onion Rings, another new choice for us. All the appetizers and side were delicious and the steaks were cooked to our request. Atmosphere: Upscale Steakhouse, Service: excellent, Food: excellent More
