Pretty typical upscale bar that you've find on Steves avenue. Similar to Cactus Club, Earls, etc. The food (including steak) was very good, and they had some excellent happy hour drink specials as well.

We had a good dinner here. First we were wondering whether the restaurant was open, because it looked empty and indeed there were not many guests - but our dinner was very good, with friendly service. I had a tasty burger.
