American | Midtown East, Manhattan

Dined with a group of 9 for a business dinner. From the moment we arrived until last drinks we were treated with excellent service and food. All except one person ordered the porterhouse steak and we were all pleased with the quality of beef and the excellent preparation on the cook. Our server Al was always available for anything we needed. And his service was impeccable. We ordered two bottles of wine and cocktails and the manager sent complimentary limoncello and port to our table. I will definitely be back to this restaurant again. Food and excellent service mean everything. More
