I travel a lot. And, frequent some of the best restaurants in the US and overseas. My standards are high when it comes to restaurants. Two of my favorite foods are steaks and mussels. The best steaks I've had have been in Argentina and in the US at Benjamin's in NYC. That is until I was in Phoenix last week... More

Typical entrees are $50. At that price point I would expect an extraordinary experience. While the steaks were good, we've had better at much lower prices. Salads were uninspired, garlic potatoes and rice pilaf were OK. Shrimp cocktail - shrimp over cooked. Service was very good.

Lovely old school supper club, complete with red velvet wall paper and cozy booths. You go in through the kitchen and are greeted by the kitchen staff. All busy preparing food. Nice to know they have nothing to hide. We were early for our reservation but were still seated very quickly by very friendly staff member. Our server knew his... More

It is a total experience and a step back in time. It's been years since a plate with carrots, celery, green onions and radishes bathed in ice is place on the table after sitting down. That is very old school. Do not be alarmed when you enter the restaurant and you enter through the kitchen. It kind of shook me... More

We dined here on a Saturday night to celebrate my husbands birthday. I used open table to reserve and it was a breeze. I received a call in the morning from the restaurant to confirm our table. I am a native of Arizona and this is not the first time I have ate here but the first time I have... More

This old fashioned Phoenix landmark was recommended by the hotel concierge at the Westin. I was entertaining several business colleagues and wanted something special. We started with calamari....very good. Moved on to salads. But the best was the steaks. Prime rib was fantastic!

This steak house was FABULOUS! The food was outstanding from the wine to the yummy house bread to the exquisite Caesar salad with anchovies to my prime rib and my partners filet mignon/snow crab. Even the trio crime brûlée was fantastic. All fresh and uncomplicated great tasting food! Our waiter Lonnie was fun, conversational, and just perfect. The bartender even... More

This place is a true gem. Great food, service and atmosphere. When you arrive you have to park in the rear and enter the building by walking through the kitchen! Once inside the main seating area, you feel like you have been transformed back to a high end steakhouse in 1970. The decor, fixtures and bar look like they could... More
