steakhouse requirements

mousse | Nov 1, 2007 10:12 AM

It's that time of year again when my in-laws come and we try to find a steakhouse with all of our requirements. Help! (Have tried Ruth's Chris and Smith & W--both flunked--Ruth's too loud, sides awful; Smith & W food barely warm when it came out)

Looking for:

1. Not too loud; not see and be seen
2. Great steaks AND great lobster AND great sides
3. Downtown
4. Good wine list that isn't vastly overpriced
5. Good service
6. Nice atmosphere

This doesn't seem too much to ask, but when I peruse the board, it looks like there's always a disqualification. Good steaks, but not sides; great food, but loud, etc. Help!
