Pros: Great old world atmosphere

Cons: Everything else

This place is definitely an old-fashion steakhouse with dim lighting and an antiquated feel. Although I was satisfied with my prime rib, my salad was swimming in dressing and my vegetables were a bit overcooked. Our meal ended well though with the creme brulee.

I love this restaurant. It's old-school red leather booths, white linens, nice place settings. The staff is friendly, but not intrusive, and the service is great. My friend and I each had a great martini while we looked over the menu.
