The food was great. I was there for a dinner meeting and the menu was pre-selected with entree three choices. I had salmon and my daughter had steak. The atmosphere was very good and the service was also good.

Restaurant was recommended by a friend. The steaks were cooked to perfection and prices were fair. We have been to the BEST Steak houses in NYC and this place is a contender. Great Service. Will definitely be back.

We went to celebrate. Atmosphere has a kind of New Orleans feel. We had crab cakes, salad, salmon, and grouper. The meal is a la carte. The food was very good including the desserts. I would consider it more for special occasions. Service was good....More
