is located in the Warwick hotel. Was exhausted from a day of travel and wanted a non-roomservice meal. Unfortunately, this probably could have been a room service meal. Service was very good but prices were really high for the quality.

There's nothing like a good old school steak house that knows exactly how to please. The food was perfect, as were the drinks. The service impeccable. You can't go wrong. Nice place for a special occasion.

Jackets not required but most gentlemen wear them. Classic food from the Escargot to the Prime Ribs, prepared excellently. Large cocktails and plenty of dark wood and leather.

Gargantuan cuts of prime beef, extra thick chops, and simply prepared fresh seafood are the straightforward offerings of this steakhouse that evokes the supper clubs of Manhattan in the 1940's. Leopard print carpeting, black lacquered walls trimmed in brass and tuxedoed waiters complete the elegant atmosphere, featuring live piano and bass nightly. Dress code is business casual.
