The staff at this bistro does make a sincere effort to revolutionize American steak houses, as says their unstated motto. The idea is hugely reflected in their food, which is high in quality and low in prices. And the best part is the friendly and informal staff who make you feel at home. The dishes and the low prices are examples of the restaurant's generosity to the customers and their pockets. The homemade desserts, too, are worth a try. So go ahead and eat to your heart's content without worrying about the money for once!
Great restaurant. A lot of food for a great price. I recommend sharing the porterhouse steak on the fix menu. The french fries are the best I ever had. And the steak was tender and juicy. Highly recommend this place.
The pre fixed dinner here is so popular because its such a great value. For $35 you get 2 drinks, an appetizer, a 12 oz. steak with a side dish(you can also share a large porterhouse steak for 2) and a yummy dessert. The steaks are also just heaven, tender and juicy cooked exactly how you want it. The service is also impeccable with just the right ambiance. These things plus it's in Beverly Hills, how can you go wrong?
The fixed price menu is a great option for steak lovers. Where else in Beverly Hills can you get a huge steak meal for forth bucks?! You get an apetizer (the cesar salad is really good), a large porterhouse steak for 2, a side dish (fries, freshly creamed spinach, etc.), two cocktails and dessert. A note about dessert: the chocolate lava cake is to die for. This place is so serious about quality that they make their own catsup.
I live in the neighborhood and have passed this place several times. How glad I am that we finally stopped in. Everything was perfect! The service, the appetizers, The 20-ounce T-bone (I didn't need the knife) the swordfish (firm and delicious) the creamed corn (to die for) the onion soup (best anywhere, ever). Even the cotton candy candle delight that they brought when they found out it was my birthday. David the manager was very charming and seemed genuinely interested in our comments. I highly recommend this fine establishment to anyone tired of the too pricey, too full of themselves places that give half the quality for twice the price. Please treat yourselves to this wonderful experience. You won't be sorry.
We had a dinner in this restaurant and I’d like to share my experience. It was my first time in this restaurant and I didn’t choose it myself. So before the dinner I read the menu on the internet as well as the reviews. According to some reviews the food was good but the service so-so. But I still hoped for the best. I am a foreigner, I have been living in LA for 2 years and I don’t go out very often, so I decided to give it a try. I should have trusted the reviews more!
I bought a fancy birthday cake for our dinner guest for $40 in Sweet Lady Jane and my husband gave it to the manager when we arrived. The cake disappeared mysteriously during our dinner. I had to ask several times about the cake and finally the manager came and told me that the cake had been cut into pieces, that it was a mistake! He apologized and offered the substitution for the cake, but he said that we would have our own cake as well. I didn’t want to argue with him, because I didn’t want to ruin the nice evening for our guests, so I did my best not to show how upset I was. Finally, when we had almost finished our coffee the cake substitution arrived. It couldn’t be compared with Sweet lady Jane of course - a pile of cotton candy with a candle! And 5 minutes later we also got the remains of our own cake - four tiny little pieces. I still wonder - where is the rest? The cake was made for 6-8 people. And a special decoration was made on the cake with the name of the birthday person. So it’s very difficult to believe that the cake was just cut by mistake and served to some other clients as a regular dessert.
It’s very strange, sad and even shocking that these things can happen in a decent Beverly Hills restaurant. Some time ago I’d worked as manager in a restaurant in a country that is considered to be developing and less refined (especially in comparison with Beverly Hills), but I can tell you for sure it couldn’t happen in my restaurant.
I wouldn’t recommend anybody to have dinner at this restaurant. You will pay $200 for the dinner for 4 and will have this kind of service. Do you really need it?
I will never go to this restaurant again or recommend it to a friend.
Really good food, decent prices, but really bad service. We had a party of 13 and alot of things we tried to ask for (ie more bread, more water, another martini, another steak knife) we ended up having to ask repeatedly just to get. Plus they were really slow even though it wasn't crowded. I mean even slower than the typical upscale restaurant.
ALSO BEWARE: Being a large party, of course, they added the tip to the receipt, but what they tried to do is add the gratuity after the tax, meaning we would have to pay an extra 18% tip off the tax alone. They ended up telling us that's how they do it unless the customer requests it added before the tax. Shady system to try to earn a few extra dollars.
This restaurant serves very poor quality beef and over marinates them to compensate for the poor quality. I ordered their porterhouse steak, and I thought that I was chewing on cardboard. I couldn't even taste the natural flavor of the beef because of the marinade. The prices were not even that cheap compared to a decent restaurant. The decor was actually decent; but serving poor quality food on real tablecloth doesn't make the food taste any better. Also, our service was horrible. Our waitress was curt and somewhat condescending and not very friendly at all. I'm hoping she just had a bad day, but a waitress's demeanor can really ruin a meal. Overall, I felt like I ate a piece of meat at a local all night diner.
