Made our 25th anniversary very special.
We arrived 15 minutes early & had to wait in the lounge. This is the only negative- if you have any intolerance to second hand smoke & smells then the residual smell of cigarette smoke will gag you. This smell is only in the lounge, the restaurant area is fine so stay out of the lounge. At exactly 5:30 we were seated at our booth. The staff pulled out the table to allow easy access..and then the show began. Laura wheeled over a cart of food & made a spectacular presentation of the steaks and customized menu items. Our waiter, Chris, came over and brought a round loaf of onion bread (YUM) & made recommendations. We ordered chilled Maine lobster - ( $21 for about 4 oz) ....the presentation was beautiful, but the lobster itself was slightly overcooked and therefore a litte rubbery, but still flavorul. Onto the main course - no wait...time for a picture???....more about that later. My husband ordered the 24 oz Porter house steak ($56.00) it was like BUTTER, rare, perfectly seasoned, what a steak should be. I ordered the rare sashimi grade Ahi tuna steak ($48.00) & again perfection... Asian inspired flavor...cooked rare (yes still cool in the center)...just wonderful... We also ordered a Morton Salad $15.00 & broccoli w/ bernaise sauce ..skip those....nothing really wrong...just not needed...pricey & not really flavorful. Then we made our 1st big mistake...we let our waiter recommend a bottle of wine..and forgot to ask the price...$133.00 for a bottle of red wine was crazy...good but not worth it...Remember the picture: Our maitre'd brought over a congratulaory picture of my husband and I, at our booth, in a signed black matt cardboard frame...saying Happy Anniversary...It was signed by all the wait staff....then they delievered a complimentary chocolate lava cake ($14.00).... that was to die for. The service was impeccable....all the staff was attentive and the food was great. We will definately go back for those special occasions.
