    Overall myself and my husband truly enjoyed ourselves. The food was incredible. We ordered roasted chicken for myself and porterhouse steak for my husband. The steak was beautifully cooked to rare as requested and my roasted chicken was delicious. We also ordered the stuffed hash browns, broccolini, and mushrooms and onions as sides. For our appetizers we ordered the butcher salad and onion soup. Both were delicious. This is the perfect setting and meal quality for a romantic evening. We felt well cared for by the staff and felt as if we were the only patrons in the restaurant. We’re already talking about when to go back.

    Great meal, we felt somewhat rushed because we were asked to order everything all at once. Appetizers which included the lobster cocktail were phenomenal but smallThe meat was great but not really sure it was worth the high price point. The wine was at least a 300% mark up. Terrific service and great atmosphere, as you would expect in a Starr restaurant.

    Celebrated my brother's 40th bday there and we couldn't be happier. Our Server Chris was prompt, attentive, and super knowledgeable. We had the tomahawk, delmonico, porterhouse, surf and turf and the chicken. All were cooked to perfection, looked amazing and tasted even better! We will definitely return.

    As always, the entire experience was excellent. What I always tell people when asked about the restaurant, that beyond the delicious food and professional service, is that every time we've gone for dinner, the entire staff made us feel valued - respected. That may sound trivial, but when we go out to a restaurant, that personal treatment sets the tone for the whole meal.

    We went for a pre-theater dinner. The staff was very accommodating in pacing the dinner so that it was enjoyable with just enough time for the short walk to the show. As usual the food and drinks were wonderful.

    The steak was great, so were the drinks and macaroni and cheese, but the Brussels sprouts were terrible. The server also charged the wrong card, so they charged my company card twice. And my personal card once. I’m still trying to get a hold of them. Seriously? I expected better. What a disaster.
