Top notch food and service!! The wine list is excellent and ranges in price from moderate to expensive. Would recommend to anyone looking for a food experience that rivals restaurants around the world.

Great food, excellent service!!! Must try the filet mignon and sauteed vegetables. To die for!!!! My fianc'e and i had a great experience. I highly recommend the house Cabernet. A little towards the expensive side but defenitely worth it if you're trying to impress a lady...wink.wink ;)

Wow...the best food around. My husband and I enjoyed our anniversary dinner here last year. The food was exceptional - as was the service. We look forward to going back!

Our new favorite steak and seafood restaurant over Donavan's and Ruth Chris Steak House. Perfect for special occasions! Great restaurant. The servers are professional and knowledgeable. The menu is comprehensive with some nice additions such as Cherries Jubilee, The dinning room is elegant and welcoming. The wine selections are vast. The value is great. I recommend them highly!

My husband took me here for my birthday last year. I love trying new restaurants and I was looking forward to this one. We really enjoyed eating here and the food was fabulous! I had one of their specials that night, which was kind of a sampler of steak and seafood and sides all on one plate. It was delish! I also enjoyed my basil mojito which was one of their special drinks that night too.

After hearing a new steak house opened in North County, my husband and I and another couple made reservations and hoped to have a great experience. Unfortunately, our experience was less than expected. First , when you enter the restaurant, you immediately notice that the bar area occupies a third of the entire square room from the mid to right side. The dining area is flanked center left. In the back you see a waiter area and kitchen. Although everything was decorated very nicely, the bar area and bar crowd was noisy enough to dominate and disctract from the entire dining area. But of more importance is the food. We have dined at the best steak houses and restaurants across the country. It is clear that they use the standard USDA Prime beef but it comes up short from steakhouses like Ruths Chris and Donovan's and others when it comes to cooking techinque and flavor. We even tried some of their accompanied sauces, but they too were not special. For the high price, we expected much better. We could tell the chef and cooks did not come from top notch steakhouses. Our group also tasted some seafood appetizers that we admit had very nice presentations. But to us, we felt that they were sprinkled with too much of this and too much of that ,where it was too confusing for our tastebuds. There were several other things we didn't like. As stated before, the room is one simple square. It was dark, had no windows and no view. Also, the staff and managers were staring at us too much which didn't give us much privacy. But what really turned us off was when we were greeted by an elderly gentleman, I guess a Manager or Chef, I don't know. But when our discussion turned to a nearby competitor and his comments were slightly negative in that they did not use USDA Prime beef, we felt this negativity was not the tone to have when you are the new kid on the block. Our recommendation: drive up to Mastro's in Costa Mesa or Donovans or Ruths Chris locally for a true dining experience.

Pros: new and upscale

Cons: no privacy, noisy bar, food way OVERPRICED only to be okay

Editorial from

Forget that it is part of the West Inn & Suites hotel complex; this standalone steakhouse serves up some of North County's finest meat with chef Eugenio Martignago at the helm. Carnivores will enjoy the tender, wet-aged Primeā€¦
