There are many steakhouses in New York but this one is definitely one of the best. Great soups (onion. Lobster), high quality meat and great service.

Unbelievably good steak. Great selection of cuts and meats available. Impeccable wine list to accompany any choice of meal. Attentive and knowledgeable staff. This place is definitely worth a visit.
