We were celebrating our 55th wedding anniversary and looked forward to our first trip to a REAL restaurant since the beginning of the pandemic. We chose Steak 38 because it was close. The reservations were easy to make, the restaurant was lovely, the wait staff pleasant and knowledgeable, and the food (prime rib and duck) were well prepared and delicious. The menu had enough variety that I'm sure we won't have to wait for a special occasion to return.

The service was horrible. Our waiter wanted to impress us with his knowledge of music and forgot that he is a server.

When we arrived we had to wait for about 20 minutes which was fine considering we were tempted to sit at the bar anyway. The bartender promptly greeted us with a hearty handshake and made our drinks perfectly. This was my first time there and I'd like to return again soon. Our server was very informative and friendly. The Caesar salad was prepared table side and was very good. Both of us had the steak and ate every last bit of it. Parking is limited so just be prepared to use valet. If you've never treated yourself to eating here, you shouldn't hesitate to visit one day.

The food is excellent. My only negative is the music is a bit loud and personally I think you should stick to the Sinatra era music.

Our first experience wasnt as pleasant as the reviews from past customers because our waiter wasnt at all attentive to serving us. Now I dont understand how some other customers were receiving their food before us and we were sitting for at least an hour before our food came to the table but the food was very flavorful and delicious despite the service we received from the make waiter and to make matters worse the tip was in the bill and the waiter took the xtra 20 and never said anything and just disappeared before I could ask for the money back and that was a devious act on his part because if the service he provided to us was better I would not have wanted the extra 20 back but he knew I was going to take it back and thats why he left so fast. After talking it over with family and my husband we would love to be invited back for a better experience to enjoy at this restaurant. Food ambience was great but waiter service was TERRIBLE!

We are longtime patrons of Steak 38. Our latest experience was awful. My fiancée ordered Chicken Piccata but received Chicken Marsala instead. While waiting for her corrected entree a dispute broke out in the kitchen. It seriously sounded like violence would ensue so we left the premises ASAP never to return.

Table made Cesar Salad was excellent. Banana Foster desert table made excellent. The sides were well portioned and good. My NY Strip steak was overcooked (I asked for medium and it was perhaps closer to well done), but tasty nonetheless.

The ambiance is unique. The exterior and adjacent motel are a bit unnerving, but glad I gave them a try.

Nice place, intimate. "Smart casual" dress code/suggestion largely ignored; there were folks in ripped and very old looking jeans. This detracted from the overall ambience and appearance.
Steaks were prepared as requested and were of good quality. Vegetables were especially good. The Caesar salads were overly garlicky, with one of our party unable to eat his.
Wine selection was very adequate.
