What a disappointing dinner. Went there for my brother’s birthday. Filet mignon was tough and the prime rib was a poor cut and tough also. Service was slow. We have gone there many times over the years but this was our last time.

I've been at this restaurant every time I come to Charlottesville and have never been disappointed. I've had the prime rib, strip steak and they were both done to perfection and very tasty. Great Restaurant for a steak dinner.

Service was great. Food was average. Nothing special or over the top and worth this kind of money. Might go back if I was ever in the area again, but seriously doubt it.
