Four of us had dinner and a business meeting. It was very quiet (Lent and Tuesday) so we were able to get some work done and conversation accomplished without having to yell. We all had different entrees. My NY strip steak was cooked to perfection, unfortunately, it was quite "grizzly." The cheesecake was from Juniors and was just OK. The... More

We have been coming here for a few years now and truly enjoy a classic steakhouse experience - only without the noise you get at some of the New York steakhouses! Daniel our server was excellent, we've had him several times, and he was fun as always. The steak is the star of the show, although my wife and friends... More

Relaxing Atmosphere, Smaller venue. Very attentive and helpful server. Very good wines by the glass, and by the bottle I'm sure. Interesting menu items. Baratta Salad was great. Steak au Poive was cooked to perfection. Sides were included with entree and available as additional choices too. What a great meal and great overall experience. I left happy.

Went to this restaurant for our wedding anniversary and thought we would have a great dinner and get good service--NOT! The food was O.K. but the steak and creamed spinach were just average and not worth the price. I have had much better steak dinners at Outback. Waiting for the Fairfield Blackstone's Steakhouse to open which may put these guys... More

I loved the music, service, atmosphere and most of all the food. The crunchy coconut shrimp literally melted in my mouth, and the porterhouse brought me back to dinners at Manero's in Greenwich (but so much better). For a minute I felt like Anton Ego, the dining critic in Ratatouille experiencing a flashback connecting the food to my youth.

I just left. I sat down opened my napkin and a live roach greeted me. I flung it to the floor and it scurried away. So did I, but I left the restaurant, the roach headed for the kitchen.

Came here for a dinner with a girlfriend. ordered calamari, scalloped potatoes and onion soup and for a main I had the filet mignon. my steak was cooked perfectly although my friend sent hers back undercooked and it returned over cooked so that was a tad disappointing for her. Onion soup delicious, as was the calamari. Scalloped potatoes were to... More
