“Artichoke reigns supreme”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

The skinny:

Parking- street or Valet ($5.50)
Decor- old and worn
Service- hit and miss
Restroom- Clean but worn
Noise Factor- loud, loud, loud
Food- ok, not amazing

I came here for a business dinner and we were given a small booth to sit in. We moved to another part of the restaurant next to 3 of the loudest birthday parties ever. The service from the hostess was borderline rude but the wait staff was nice. Getting water refilled was difficult. I ordered the cheesy garlic bread (is that orange color real?) and calamari (good). The french onion soup was just ok but the grilled artichoke is the best item. Perfectly cooked and the dipping sauce is terrific. I would only go back for that.

“Smokehouse Rocks!!!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Went here for wedding anniversary date with hubby and the kids! Came in at 3:00 pm for early dinner late lunch kid of thing after Sunday Church. Was totally surprised when our host waiter told us that they are giving us 20% discount on our tab for coming in at 3:00 which I did not know previously! Had the usual house special which is the best prime rib roast melt in your mouth plus creamed spinach and mashed potatoes ! Would definitely come back here again !

“Old school steakhouse. A tad overpriced for what you get”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I guess if you like old school, diner-ish places this is the joint for you. This used to be the gold standard many, many years ago. Today, at the prices they charge, you can get much, much better food elsewhere. If you are in the mood for a good steakhouse, go to Tam's in Glendale. Don't waste your time here.

“Great, close by, smokehouse”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The food here is very flavorful and I have enjoyed everything that I have had. If you were near riverside dr. or the studios then the location can't be beat. Hope this helps. Best- Riley

“Idea is good - food is fair - service is bad”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I've lived near this restaurant for 20 years so I've tried it every few years just to see if it has gotten any better. It hasn't. It's a romantic idea - to have an old school restaurant with charm - but this isn't it. Food is average. Service is bad - on a regular basis.
