Once an amazing place for steak, this place has now hit rock bottom. Incredibly our entire experience was a shambles. We were disregarded for a table we booked specially. The meat was of a very different overall taste and texture; not for the better by...More

Ok place to eat. A bit cramped but the food is pretty good. Prices area a little high. Staff were a little slow and sometimes appeared confused but in the end our experience was positive.
