We really enjoyed our waiter Stanford. He was great. Always right there when we needed him!
The problem was that there was tons of butter put on our fish and vegies, before we had a chance to say on the side. While it was good food, there was a lot of butter splattered on the whole plate.
The prices are extremely high, which really means we won't come to your restaurant often.

It was very noisy as well. There were a few large birthday celebrations. That didn't matter really.
The high prices keep your restaurant as a place we won't be returning to for a long time.

This restaurant offered a solid experience. We liked the ambience which was, to us, a throwback to the dinner clubs of the 80’s. The menu had a nice variety of choices and our selections were good. There were no “wow” moments in our evening but we were also never disappointed. We could tell there were a lot of regulars in the room, and i get why this restaurant would attract regulars. They seemed like they would deliver an expected quality experience every time.

Food was very delicious.
Price was justifiable on steaks, but the market price for Lobster was ridiculous.

The filet with it's accompanying zip sauce was incredible. Cooked to perfection and simply delicious. Our waiter Oslam (sp?) was friendly and knowledgeable. It was a little pricey but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Very nice restaurant, early Italian mafia décor/leather seating, long bar, interesting lighting, etc. Service is very good with a professional wait staff. The food is well prepared and excellent. The wine list includes splits which I really like and suits me perfectly. We dine here frequently.

Excellent food, great service, ambiance was...entertaining -- like an Italian restaurant stereotype: ornate, literally Sinatra music playing,
guys out of a Soprano's episode -- but fun and comfortable. But in terms of food, one of the best Italian restaurants in town.

It was such a lovely place. Very old school with impeccable service, Sinatra music and festive decor for Christmas. If it hadn’t been for the one large screen tv I could have been back in time. The food was delicious and we really enjoyed it. My boyfriend and I are a bit “artistic” looking so mid western places can sometimes give us an attitude but everyone here was delightful. I highly recommend this place.

All 5 had Chateaubriand. All rated it first class. I didn't like the fact that you didn't get the antipasto tray and soup and salad and pasta because it was a "holiday" menu. Big ripoff

Eight of us went to Steven Lelli's Christmas Eve. The prices where highly inflated. It took 2 1/2 hours to start getting our food and the food was not delivered all at the same time. It was 25 minutes from the time the first person got their food until the last person finally got their food. Some of the meals were overcooked and the pasta dishes looked like they had sat around for quite a while. I understand that it was Christmas Eve and found out later that they were short staffed in the kitchen. However, it would have been nice if they had let us know that they were running very slow, we could have adjusted our expectations. Our server was very good and was all on her own, busing tables, getting water and taking and delivering orders. It's hard to say if I would recommend this restaurant to others. The food that did come out hot was good. I was not impressed with how management handled the issue.

The food was incredible. It was very busy and we didn’t have a great table. However, it was a delicious dinner. They have the best minestrone soup I have ever tasted. Next time, I will call further in advance to reserve a table in the “alcove” area.

Weird smell
Tacky decorations
Food was not good. I didn’t eat any soup and the waiter didn’t ask me why - it was gross and had a weird seafood taste that’s why I only took 2 bites.
Zip sauce on steak was tasty
Twice cooked potatoes were the highlight of the meal - really scrumptious!

The moment you walk in the door you are immediately taken back in time....from Frank Sinatra playing in the background to the artwork from the 40's and 50's on the wall, the dim lighting, the velvet and leather seating thru-out....it was as if you had entered a movie set. We were greeted by our server "Patty" who had a upbeat and profession demeanor [at first - story to come]. We were served probably some of the best hot bread I have ever had along with our hand-made cocktails which were worth the price. We then went into our appetizers. I highly recommend the scallops [yum yum] the lobster crab cakes were luke warm and a little too much breading. Our waitress Patty recommended the minestrone and BOY WAS IT GOOD! By the time the main course came, we were all STUFFED. Now for the main course, which was mediocre to say the least. I ordered the lamb chops [medium] one came correctly but the other was over-cooked. My mother ordered the Dinner Cut Filet [which was recommended] and the texture was off but mom didn't complain because she enjoyed the rest of the meal so much. My husband ordered the Lobster Tail which was "mushy" indicating that it was old. My husband had to send the lobster back because it was not edible at all. Our upbeat and profession waitress changed her tone to one with a attitude. which was surprising to us. She didn't offer a replacement meal or to take it off the bill, just to credit us for our drinks! What? So to say the least, we were not impressed with our main course meals. What could have been a "A+" experience ended up with a "C" review.
