I've been hearing about this restaurant for a while now, so I went with my date. The atmosphere was very nice, the salad bar was great, and the whole coaster flipping thing was brilliant. People walking around with the meat all had some kind of exotic accent, and I even liked that.\r
Among all the selections of meat, there's three that stood out the most, and they were the Picanha, Fillet Mignon, and the Alcatra. The rest were.....great but not as great as these three. (It's personal preference, mind you.) Their side dishes like the roasted banana was excellent as well. They have a very nice wine list, and I highly recommend having wine with the food, cause it's really rich and greasy, and if you don't have something like wine to wash it down with, you won't get your money's worth.\r
One negative thing I have to say about the place is the service. I don't know. maybe I dressed too casually. but our waiter was.......always busy with something else. You know that trick they pull on you--""if I don't look at them, I don't have to serve them"" thing? He was pulling it all night. Even our payment was handled by another waitress. We even thought they had a shift change until he walked passed us, and served another family at another table. Maybe If I take some Louis-Vuitton bag, or wear Jimmy Choo shoes with lots of make-up next time, he'll pay more attention. \r
Other then that, it was great!!
