In their defense, we came in at 9 and they close at 9:30. Ordered seared ahi, asked for it to be unseared; couldn't do that because it comes frozen and pre seared. OK, hmm, then it comes out and is so red it is almost...More

What a sad excuse for a mid-scale steakhouse. We met some friends here - they picked the location - to catch up after not seeing them for several years. The servers were friendly and tried to accommodate us. Because of the kitchen and bar, they...More

This is a good place to get a great steak and they have something called a Blooming Onion which is a meal in itself. It is best shared with others! The noise level is a bit high for those with hearing issues but it is...More
