Service was seamless, steak was amazing and wine served at correct temperature with a wide selection. Yes, it's not cheap. But they deliver. Never rushed - they understand the pace you want to dine at. Piano bar was fun too!

You get what you pay for. Everyone knows that and yet they don't want to actually pay for high quality dining experiences. The Famous consistently delivers extraordinary service and quality. Always ask for the filet!

Food was very good but it took us 2.5 hours to eat and it was very noisy and loud. Be prepared prepared to wait a long time on your food. Very big servings and the food was good when it came.

We were told this is a good place top eat. The steak was good, but $39.00 for just a 10 oz filet with nothing else. That is the least expensive steak. $7.00 extra for a potato and more $ for salad and anything else. Service...More
