The dazzling experience begins as soon as you cross the threshold. The decor was executed impeccably with a combination of finishes that appear to be from a bygone era. Absolutely nothing was left up to change. Even the buttons on the employees uniforms share the finish found on light fixtures and silverware. Drinks are generously poured and servers were always present without being overbearing. Jimmy and his colleague were friendly and very well informed about the menu. Even the way the described menu items was attention grabbing. While the cost is slightly higher than an average upscale restaurant, the experience is far above the average upscale restaurant thereby providing an excellent value. If you've not been the Prime and Proper yet, make a reservation now you will be glad you did.

It certainly was not what i expected it to be. I ordered my steak to be medium rare and it came out medium well. The steak was good but not great. I ate it anyway as it took a long time to get our food. I enjoy food and dining but this was not impressive at all. The shrimp were huge but had no taste and there wasn't enough horseradish in the sauce nor was there enough lemon or sauce for the huge shrimp. The bread wasn't good either. For being a steakhouse, the steak should be perfect. Another party at our table sent his back and got a salad which wss a plate of romaine.

I heard great things and I really expected more. We were a party of 8. The service was lacking. The servers came to the table to introduce themselves and then were nowhere to be found. It took forever for the drinks and food to come. I wanted to enjoy my dinner but I did not want to be there for 3.5 hours. We ordered appetizers which just prolonged the process. If I would’ve know then what I know now I would’ve gone right to ordering dinner. The food was just okay , all 8 of us had the same reaction and we all ordered different things. Nothing really wowed us. Out of everything the dessert was the best. All the main courses lacked flavor. Definitely not worth the price. Pretty disappointing, I will not be returning.
