On my way home, stopped in for lunch before my mid-afternoon train. The crowd seemed to be mainly office workers from the area. The place is dark, in a good steakhouse sort of way with nice red accents. The scent of wood permeates it, likely...More

I wanted prime rib so we did the 20 minute walk to it. Steak was fantastic. Escargot and duck not as much. It wasn't that busy and the staff was slacking. If you want a great steak this is the place.

Not so sure but usually all hotels' concierge do this. I can't think of any reason why they wouldn't.
