I always go back here to recalibrate. The steaks are great, but there's much more on the menu worth having, including the calamari and heads. The sauces are excellent - try the trio of sauces for variety, but the steaks can really be eaten straight...More

Amazing food with generous portions. My wife and I shared the grass fed filet and the ostrich. This was the best steak I ever had and the mashed potato and onion ring sides were great additions. The ostrich was really good, too! Our server, Filippe,...More

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. We enjoyed the tour of the meat locker, explanation of grain versus grass fed animals, and tasting. The food and service were excellent. The lamb ribs were awesome.

I come here often for their ostrich medallions which are the best I've ever tasted and I love the generous portion of their cranberry sauce. You can choose between grain fed or grass fed beef and you're invited into the kitchen for a tutorial on...More
