The service is impeccable. The dining room, even when crowded, is a bastion of intimacy. Never will you hear anyone at the next table. Always, there will be a staff member ready to pour your wine. (Rarely will you see him before he does.)
When dining here, one should be prepared to go full tilt. Wine -- go for the good stuff -- Dinner -- they show you your own cut of meat -- Dessert -- you won't be able to say No. Just say Yes. At my last experience, three of us shared a Caesar salad for two, a J. Lohr Cabernet, I had a 10 oz. filet, one friend had veal, and another a Kansas cut of steak (it was big.) We finished with a decadent white chocolate cheese cake. Our wallets were lighter. But we were happy. And with the exchange rate, it's actually quite reasonable. Bon appetit!
