I had dinner at this place with 6 other people. An interesting evening to say the least.
First, it is a steakhouse with a raw bar and an extensive wine list. Our party did not drink so the servers were a little let down about a third of their menu being off the table. There were a variety of aged steaks to choose from and other meats and seafood also. The place will not cook your steak beyond medium because, as they explain, the steak will get too chewy because it has been aged for so long. If you like your steak beyond medium you are screwed and better get something else like the lamb chop.
My steak a bone in was good, cooked to medium as they promised, but a little too pink still for me. Not sure that I loved the spices on top, to me cut down on the natural flavor of the meat. Some of the thicker steaks were even less cooked but good. The sides were good, I am a big fan of the giant onion rings for sure. The garlic mashed were good too but not great. The Caesar was wonderful, the best one I have had in a while.
We sat on the first floor in the main dining room. The music was in the speakers just above our table. It was so loud we could not converse, seriously, we asked that it be turned down twice which it was a little but then it went back up, so plan to eat there looking at eat other but if you want to talk to your dinner guests you need to shout or use sign language, it was that loud. Does this place want to be a nice upscale steak restaurant with a 80-100 CAD per person ticket or a bar? It needs to figure itself out.
Service was by a team of two, one guy was good the other not so much, and the one guy did not have a sense of humor either at all, and was not hospitable. He really didn't like that I was not putting a tip on the credit card bill but rather paying a tip in cash, for some reason.... The food came out really slowly, long ticket times, real long at each course.
The hostess could not have been more gracious as we had to change our number of people several times. She was great.
All in all an ok dinner, I read some of the other reviews, some were great, some not so much, I can see why the jury is mixed after my meal and experience there last night.
Not sure that I can recommend, I need more than just good food, the vibe, sound, service and ambience have to match and at this place they did not. Too bad.
