My daughter and I stopped there for lunch during a day of shopping as the plaza. The place had a really bad smell that made it hard to enjoy our meal. We were dressed fine, we thought, but the hostess didn't even say hello, just looked us over when we walked in and told a server to "Put us in... More

We had a private room with two attentive servers. Drinks were on point as well as the food. Steaks are prime and flavor matches. The sides are large and easily can be shared with several. There is a cheese scalloped potato that will blow you away. Had the thick cut prime rib and it was excellent and filling. Save room... More

Enjoyed the food here, but the prices are extremely high and the place had a bad smell. The service was great and I have no complaints on the food either.

in all fairness, we had a large group in a private room, and the service was excellent. I had the thick cut prime rib, and it was a lot of meat, but otherwise uninspiring. I don't mind paying those kinds of prices for something memorable, but I can do better than that. Garlic mashed potatoes were very tasty.

Place smells musty like grandma's wet cellar. Mediocre food with steak advertised at Prime Grade, but eats like Select Grade. Center cut strips aren't center cut. Grilled lobster tail is dry & tough. Shellfish platter on menu as multiple scallops, but only served with one. Horrendously over-priced for what you can get any other steak place in town. I doubt... More

I went in expecting a great steak. I ordered the ribeye and was disappoint on how chewy it was. For what was described as USDA Prime, I couldn't swallow that. Another had the Kansas City Strip and was very happy, so there you go.

Used to be the place to eat on the Plaza- not so much anymore. Food quality has slipped. My steak not very tender. Potato not hot. Service is impeccable but slow- not what young people want nowadays. Also decor is older and although clean, it is ancient.

I remember going to this place as a kid 40 some years ago. I especially remember the "grown up" atmosphere and the stellar steak soup. It didn't disappoint! The atmosphere is still very nice (definitely a good date night place). And the soup is to die for. My family thought I was nuts when I said I had to go... More
