If you can overlook the rather overdone amount of animal skulls , deer heads, and antlers ( even my husband pointed out that it would be crazy to try and dust the light fixtures!) there is a nice masculine intimacy to this restaurant. I would remove about 1/2 the decorations which are like a game hunter's room gone wrong (" about some antlers and deer skulls to convey a hunting lodge how about LOTS AND LOTS ?") and tone down the music just a tad as it was at times intrusive. Had read in other post/sites that service was a bit hit or miss and meals weren't timed well but we had no problem with this. Very efficient and professional service.
My husband had the chef's choice w/ wine pairing menu which turned out to be an excellent selection and well priced at $59. Starter was a large serving of slightly spicy calamari, house salad (incredible dressing - light and tangy). Main dish was a filet that was so unbelievably tender and succulent you could cut it with a fork - "like budda!" Dessert was a large portion of a blackberry creme brulee - different take on the normal creme brulee.
+'s - good service, portion sizes, thought prices fair for service and quality of food, bread was outstanding!
-'s - decor, my soup starter was bland and yet overseasoned w/...cardamom? , slight overcharge which they immediately apologized for and corrected, desserts were somewhat unimaginative...people please try something besides flourless chocolate cake, chocolate mousse or lava cake as your chocolate offering - it is SO 90's!
We would definitely go again.
