Still ok but not as good as it used to be. Raised prices, did not serve bread until we asked, for some reason they butterflied a medium well steak where one piece was well
Done and the other piece was medium. Been there many times but this was the first time we were disappointed.

Great experience, husband’s birthday, we came on the recommendation of a family member, thoroughly enjoyed, from our contact with the hostess, waiter and your staff that came by to see if we were okay. The food was great, an overall great and positive experience, will certainly return.

Came here for our 8th anniversary for a quiet/intimate dinner. Was not disappointed and had an excellent meal with even better service. Fresh Caesar salad made table side with fresh spices, garlic and anchovies the way it should be. Steak was just a touch over cooked (asked for medium) but was still delicious. I ordered a filet royale and my wife got surf and turf. The lobster was HUGE and ended up splitting it. Service was on point and the waiter, Sam, was very engaging and knowledgeable. Would definitely come back

Used to love the music like Frank Sinatra etc which added to the whole ambiance but this time it was light music. Waitress forgot our drinks so I watched another table get there drinks when they came 15 minutes after us. Food came out fresh and hot. Steak was amazing as usual so overall my wife and I enjoyed it.

My wife and I had a fantastic experience I could have eaten another steak. We had received our Covid vaccine so we wondered out of our bubble and the wife really enjoyed her drink. It was a adjustment actually eating inside but for the most part the other customers had there masks on while walking in. But I did notice some people after eating didn’t put mask back on but the wait staff had them on. We will return when we have a better handle on Covid. God Bless us all!!

Not happy with OpenTable. While the restuarant was great, we had to wait over an HOUR because Steak 38 does not subscribe to OpenTable so they never got our reservation! I'm surprised they could even squeeze us in on Valentine's Day!

I had made reservations through OpenTable 1 month before the weekend before Valentines Day. I called two weeks in advance to make sure they got my reservations and if there were any procedures for using a Groupon. I was told they had the reservationa nd using Groupons were no problem. The reservation was for 7PM. we arrived about 10 minutes early and waited for the crowd to go throught the hostess. When it was my turn I was told they did not have a reservation for me. I had the forethought to print out my reservation from OpenTable. The hostess called over the owner and he said that they stopped doing business with OpenTable because they always overbooked his place. He gruffly told the hostess to "find a place for them". We waited 45 mins.

This was our third dinner visit to Steak 38....and it will likely be our last. It was amazing how the restaurant fell from very good to poor in just a few months. The tableside ceasar salad dropped to barely adequate fom excellent. The reading on the french fried lobster tail was so thick, soggy and tough that you could hardly find the lobster. The steak was way overdone and no one came to see if our food was satisfactory....all of this occurring after we were made to wait well over an hour for a 7:30 reservation...without an apology but a really bad attitude from the owner and his entire staff!!! We were embarrassed at having recommended it to our friends. Service and food were below par and neither the waitstaff nor management cared!!!!

The food was god, but not the same quality I remember it was known for previously. It is a throw back to the old time steakhouse atmosphere of yesterday which is fun. The ceasar salad made at the table was a treat, but the steaks were not quite as special as they used to be at this traditional steakhouse.
