The shrimp were fine, the drinks decent, the steak was cooked to the proper temp. Service was very good. However, nothing was outstanding. Pretty average, and when one considers that we dropped a hundred bucks a person for dinner, it really wasn't worth it.

The atmosphere is warm and inviting with an open air feel and dark wood tone architechture. Set in the middle of the infamous gaslight district, with a wide variety of dishes, most importantly a great steak and seafood selection.

The food is ok but the service is too slow. We ordered appetizers and entrees. Waited around 25 minutes and still no food, not even bread and butter, then received food after asking for it.

Give it a shot- but you can park on the street- finding a space is like rolling the dice in Las Vegas, plenty of paid lots in the area.
