Wow we both had the 16oz Ribeye steak and enjoyed every bit of it(cooked to perfection). We went pretty early in the night and had not booked. Think its well worth booking if you can.

My wife and I have eaten here twice recently and selected different food each time. The meals have been excellent especially the steaks and homemade desserts. Portions are generous , food is quality and served hot by very nice staff. No hesitation in recommending this venue to friends and family.
