We were able to make a reservation online and sit down for a great dinner within 45min of finding the restaurant. Food was great! Non-alcoholic selection of drinks could use some pizzazz, but this is a matter of my preference. Ambiance upstairs was fun and...More

The prime rib flavor and texture was ideal, on par with Five Crowns at home. Add in horseradish at the right consistency and a perfected baked popover - there's no better meal. Great service. Wine selection needs work though.

Description
The magic of a classic steakhouse, but with a decidedly contemporary twist. In-house aged rare cuts of beef, tableside Caesar salads, flambes, flaming coffees, and more. While he may find it familiar, it's definitely not your Daddy's steak house!
