This steakhouse is good but too expensive for what you get. Also we were under impressed with the service.

We had dinner here and although it was seriously expensive, it was well worth it. If you want steak, you're going to be paying around $50-60 per person and this doesn't include the sides. The porterhouse was sensational though and the house special desert, totally...More

If you have the option of taking a subway, I would recommend it. However, there is a paid parking lot right next to MarkJoseph. You should expect to spend about $20 for a short term parking spot.
