Excellent wine list, well chosen and not too marked up. Good selection by the glass.
They have a selection of different steaks, specified by cut, age and origin. My husband had the rump special (with mushrooms and hazelnuts) and I had the scotch fillet. We ordered medium rare. The steaks were offered with a choice of sauce and a condiment selection. We ordered 2 vegetable sides, of beans and "beetroot medley".
We got complimentary bread, which was good bread.
We got the steaks, which were unevenly cooked, and rare. Red with blood running out of them. The sinew in mine was hard to cut, especially with the non serrated, blunt "steak knives". We got the vegies. The beans were undercooked (I like mine crisp, but these were nearly raw). The beetroot was mildly interesting, in that there were red and yellow ones, but the total serve was tiny and they were lined up in a little row on top of some kind of curdy cheese. An amuse bouche rather than a side for a steak. My husband's mushrooms and hazelnuts, were just mushrooms and hazelnuts, cooked. Utterly uninteresting, flavours not melded in any way, and as appeared to be the theme for the evening, undercooked. Maybe their gas cylinders were low on the evening and they were conserving.
Oh, the condiments didn't turn up until we asked for them. The restaurant was less than half full.
I don't consider myself a great steak cook, which is why we went out for this treat. But I'm afraid this restaurant failed the essential restaurant test: Could I have done this better at home? Yep. Would I have been happy to serve this to my family? Nope. And at $30-$60 per steak, not a good deal.
My main problem is: This is a steakhouse. They didn't cook the steak how we wanted it and they cooked it poorly.
We enjoyed the wine.
