This place is an establishment. Food and service were perfect. It only lost a few points for being a tad dated in decor.

Steak. Perfect.
Sides. Perfect.
Service. The best.

The menu is pricey but I haven’t eaten a better steak in Toronto. It has the perfect atomosphere for a date. Conveniently close to the downtown core.

Was hoping for surf and turf checked menu on line unfortunately no lobster on the menu. Service was good but forgot our salads. Offered free desert for the error. Medium steak was more medium well. Well steak was more medium well and returned to be cooked more. Salmon was okay nothing was really outstanding.

If you want steak with original charm is the place. Great for a business meal or pre-game meal. I’m from out of town and when I’m there I make time to have a nice meal here. My business friends love the place too.

The entire visit was wonderful - we were celebrating a 90th birthday - just two of us. The ambience, the staff, the food and the overall experience was better than I had hoped for. The servers were courteous, respectful and beyond helpful. Highly recommend the restaurant.

The best steak my girlfriend and I have ever had. Found this place because a few scenes from the tv series “Suits” was shot here and it did not disappoint. Quiet atmosphere and helpful staff. We liked that there was extra information on how the food is prepared under the menu. We will come back again.

Our group of 5 friends had an excellent meal on a Friday evening. From the attentive service to the delicious appetizers to amazing main course, everything was prepared to our liking and served at the appropriate temperature. Delicious shrimp cocktail and salad and amazing steaks and salmon made our evening a special treat. We will definitely go again when the opportunity arises.

Handy location for us near Union Station off Front, nice small scale place, definitely quiet. However rock lobster tails were overdone first round. They did accommodate us and provided replacements but really should have hit it on the first try if they aspire to the price point they have. Their signature rib steak was ok but probably not at the $70 steak level. It varied from rare to medium rare to medium (and not correlating to the bone location). Wasn’t absolutely convinced it was even aged beef. Wife liked the filet but I thought it tasted a bit weird to me.. Nice overall evening, and certainly not a disaster, but we’re probably spoiled having recently been to Keens in NYC..

Went for an anniversary dinner with family. Wonderful and quiet restaurant with prompt staff and impressive wine list. The steaks, medium-rare, were perfect and are consistently the best I've ever had. I cannot endorse the quality of the steaks enough.

We had an early dinner and the venue had lots of empty tables. The waiter seated us immediately. Service was friendly. Food was delicious. My only complaint was the server brought out our meal before we had finished our salad. We felt rushed. The venue was almost empty; I didn't see a reason to rush us. The server had already asked if we were going to a game or had to be anywhere when we first sat down.

Unfortunately, the memory that stays with me is feeling rushed.

Old school steakhouse with very dated decor and traditional steakhouse fare. Not a memorable experience. Dinner for 2 including a bottle of wine ($90) was close to $500 all in. Caesar salad was below average as was the organic green salad. Veggies were fresh and not over cooked which was better than expected given the salad experience. Steak (filet mignon) was highly tenderized but cooked as ordered. Cheesecake was a typical kind - probably frozen.
