Excellent anniversary dinner with outstanding Halibut and excellent steak. Service was what you would expect at a fine restaurant, prompt and attentive. The place was all lite up and decked out for Christmas.

Food is excellent! Staff is excellent! Drinks are excellent! What more could you want? Came here after the Rose Bowl and had a great little party in one of the back rooms and everything was great!

Dinner for six last night. Our waiter Vern was excellent. Attentive and professional! The meats were awesome, but the scampi was over cooked. Classic steakhouse.
