Generally a good experience. I should start by saying that I like steak a lot, but SF comes up short in this regard...whereas Chicago is great! The dry-aged steak was absolutely delicious. The drinks were very good and the bread and salted butter was a lovely accompaniment to our meal. I wasn't thrilled with the french fries, mainly because they got cold rather quickly. Perhaps if they were served in a vessel that retained heat better...altogether would be happy to return. Overall, would recommend to others.

Wonderful place. Definitely lives up the the stellar reputation. The maple bacon is fantastic, pork bellies finished in house, about half an inch thick. The seafood tower was amazing, and the calamari with hot peppers was perfect. My steak was phenomenal and truly among the best to be found. They have regular steaks, dry aged steaks, and Japanese offerings. The sides were wonderful, the mushrooms and creamed spinach were superb. Definitely pay a visit.

Incredible selection of steaks both dry and wet aged. Wait staff was attentive and efficient. Several members of our dinner party however got cocktails that were a "little shallow" and without garnishment. Aside from that if was a great meal that ended with a round of Louis XIII Almost forgot, the bartender was a class act..Good man.
