Steakhouse | Downtown Crossing, Boston

The NY Strip is on point...with bleu cheese crusting it’s like heaven on earth. Side dishes were also good, recommend the cream spinach. Improvements: always have skim milk. A lot of people can’t drink coffee black or with half/half or whole milk. For the price, you should go to the local walgreens and pick up skim...just sayin. Also, wait staff is okay...could be a bit more patient with customers who are deciding on a meal that is $150+ for 2 people. You’ll get a better tip for the patience. More

As usual, the charcuterie board was delicious! (If you're there for lunch, make sure you get charged for the lunch board and not the dinner board which is a little more.) The wait staff is extremely nice and it's always a pleasure to eat there. The menu has loads of delicious items, so give it a try! More

Fantastic burgers and Mac an cheese. I’m sure everything else is good too. Great beer selection. They play good music at a decent volume, not a quiet place but that’s their style and my coworkers and I love it. We have a lot of contractors from out of the country and we always bring them here.
