    Great quality and service. It’s nice to still dine in a restaurant with professional waitstaff and enjoy classic, well prepared dishes and cocktails. No gimmicks. No being asked if you “know how our menu works?”. No being told “chef sends everything as ready”. It’s a proper restaurant that is just an “old school” joy. Not to say out of date, old school in a classic dining sense.

    Excellent decor and ambiance; strong steak (weak Bearnaise sauce); every plate very good ie consistent 4 out of 5 rather than 5 out of 5. Friendly, capable, knowledgeable staff. Pricey location- but that’s to be expected. Lovely atmosphere.

    Our food was excess usual. The service was not as good as in past times. Too many different waiters and a couple of items were attempted to be cleared before we finished .

    Overall it was good. Service was excellent, bread choices were great, sides were mediocre, rib eye was excellent, filet was just ok, cookies were AMAZING. Only thing I was upset about was I let them know via open table in advance that I wanted the cookies brought over with a candle for my husbands birthday, which they confirmed they would do. The waiter never did ( I’m assuming they didn’t tell him) , so I ended up just ordering the cookies after.
