You'd think a steak house could figure out how to cook a decent steak when they're charging high-end tourist town prices. Nope. And the staffer was reluctant to take it to the kitchen to have it made properly, which is ridiculous. The server kept calling...More

My husband was dissapointed unfortunately, hè had a not so tasty pre-warmed steak, while I had the Thai chicken curry which was delicious! Our waitress was fantastic, so we had a good overall experience.

We took some clients there on a business trip. The food was very good and the server couldn't have been more professional. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Just stopped for appetizers. Wok cooked Calimari was top shelf! Dates stuffed with chorizo and bacon wrapped are a must. Good wine list. Had mission hill Cabernet and was impressed. Will definitely go back.

We had a light dinner and drinks here, and it was fine. A bit pricey for what you get (few extras, most a la carte), and it was loud (both a hen party and a fox party, so that's to be expected). The elk gnocchi...More
