Came in for drinks and dinner. Sat at the bar for both. Drinks were done solid, and dinner was as expected. If you sit at the bar, make sure you ask Emily for the Morgan Freeman audio menu.

We go to Tornado Room at least once a year for steaks. They offer great steaks with sides included at a reasonable price.

Busy place even midweek! Traditional bar and steakhouse offering good service. Our food was well cooked and presented and we all enjoyed ourselves! It's at the pricey end of the scale but you get what you pay for! Martinis are very good! Only drawback I...More

We had 25 people. We were able to have the basement dining room and it came with staff and a bartender. Limited menu for the group but everyone easily could find something they wanted. Staff was excellent. The downstairs meeting room reminded you of a...More
