CLOSED Out of Business. They were doomed from the start. A steakhouse that doesn't smell like steak was the first problem. Decor inside was great if you were in Manhattan.Too modern, slightly cold atmosphere. Lost opportunity. Should have played up the local history and good...More

Tried again after supposed revamp, still as expensive as before. Menu a little different but considering it is a streakhouse not much on offer. Also hospitality could do with a little more effort, no smiles and welcoming phrases. Probably last time I will go.

We went for dinner last night. We heard they had changed their menu, lowered their prices and had improved. We will say the food was good. The wait staff was minimal and over worked. We felt sorry for him because it was not his fault....More
