I went here with a co-worker. I can't rave enough about the food!! The steak tartare was to DIE for. A definate must!! I am always skeptic of ordering the jumbo shrimp when dining out because they are never JUMBO enough, however they were massive and just delicious! We both ordered the petit filet and it was cooked to perfection! we finished the meal with the baked alaska. I don't think that we said two words to each other during dinner! A pretty impossible feat since we are both pretty chatty! Our server Alicia, was the finishing touch on the night, she was fantastic, very attentive even though the restaurant was jammed packed!! It was a really great dinner, one of the best in a long while!!

Pros: ambiance, service and food!

Cons: parking, noisy

Steven Starr has another hit on his hands! This resturant is the best place to go to get a burger. These aren't just any burgers, they are for the burger lover.

Took my boyfriend here for a surprise night out, a month or so after it had opened. After being seated and waiting 15minutes for the waitress to come, we could see that she was clearly overworked; she had one very large table and another 1 or 2 small tables like ours. The drinks took forever to come both times, but hey, out of the 2 martini?s we had the 1st was amazing. We ordered the appetizer she suggested, the oysters, which were great. More waiting, then came dinner, both had filets. The sides were kind of cold and the steaks were good at best. More waiting, then the bill... I don?t complain about price but for $200 I was nowhere near impressed, at all! I do want to say that when the waitress wasn?t busy and was at our table she was at her best, but she definitely had way too many tables going at once. I wouldn?t say they have all their kinks worked out yet (hope that?s all it is), maybe try going after its been open awhile. It?s surely not at its best now.

Pros: Sat right at my reserved time

Cons: took forever for everything and was overpriced for what we got

We went here for a special occasion dinner and were pleasantly suprised. We couldn't find many reviews for the place, but knew it would be crowded on a Friday night because it's a Steven Starr restaurant. The atmosphere is very boys-club-ish, but swanky and buzzing with conversation. We've done the Morton's, the Ruth's Chris, the Sullivans, etc and those types of traditional steakhouses, and expected more of the same. But, this place was absolutely delicious. The steaks were the best we've ever had. I ordered a small filet, and my boyfriend had the porterhouse - both unbelieveably tender, melt-in-your-mouth perfectly cooked, and had tons of flavor. The service was wonderful, as well - excellent waitress and friendly hostess who even remembered to wish us a happy anniversary when we arrived. Great drink/wine list. Although they pride themselves on the "classic" cocktails (gimlets, martinis, etc), I didn't find my dirty martini to be made perfectly. The only other gripe - our entrees were brought out almost before we could finish our appetizers - much too quickly. Other than that, we couldn't complain. We finished the meal with a superb piece of cheesecake. Overall, an absolutely fabulous meal. We will certainly be back!
