We enjoyed the atmosphere and the host and waitress were excellent ,attentive and efficient. However the bone in rib-eye was over cooked and the loaded potato was cold. We did not complain as we know restaurants are just getting reopened. The blackened filet was perfect and the onion soup delicious.

We have eaten here before and our experience was always good.

Food was tasty but service was very slow. 2 hrs for dinner for 2. Waited at least 30 minutes to get our 1st drink. Extra dirty martini arrive with zero olive juice so server brought a small bottle so that I could add it myself. 1 Ice tea, 1 martini, Buffalo mozzarella & tomato appetizer, 8 oz filet & grilled salmon $170 inc tip

The service was excellent. I had the pasta and gumbo....the gumbo is the best I have ever had...so delicious. The drinks were good, with the best price I have seen in the city. The only drawback, they are not open Sat and Sun

I wanted a steak, baked potato, and shrimp cocktail. Just basic and classic. I found it here: the steak was great; baked potato came with lots of interesting additions; shrimp cocktail was excellent, meaning of course that the cocktail sauce was very good.

The greeting was effusive. The service was absolutely as it should be. Not too much, but not too little. Thank you, Rafael.

The room is old-time Steakhouse with music to match.

I work in the Loop pre and post-Covid and was very pleased to see this place open for business, since many are sadly closing all around us in the city. The restaurant is warm and cozy, and looks like it would be great for work get togethers or nice small dinners with family or friends in a safe and open dining area. Their food was outstanding. I got the pulled pork sandwich on the pretzel bun. All their meats are all smoked in-house and this really had to be one of the best pulled pork sandwiches I’ve ever had. Highly recommend! Also, the sangria is very tasty!!! Depending on the season you’ll get the red or white! Yummy. If you need a solid place to grab a bite in the loop, check this place out.

We made a very last minute online reservation for Friday night at 8:30p, but due to a possible scheduled protest the restaurant was closing down for the night as we arrived. They promptly re-opened just for us and had staff stay to give us an amazing experience! I had a blue cheese crusted fillet and my wife had the Salmon, both were cooked to perfection, but the real star of the night was the Brussels sprouts , which we cannot wait to have again! This will be our new go to dinner spot in the city!

Excellent steaks and service! Can’t wait for the theaters to reopen since this restaurant sit right across the street from the CIBC theatre and it is wonderful to watch the hustle and bustle from your table.
