Fodor's Review

Pinstripe suits, dark paneling, Persian rugs, and waiters in white jackets give this single-location steak house a posh tone with a big, buzzing bar overlooking Berkeley Street and a quieter, smaller one on the second floor by the cozy fireplace. Both bars serve excellent drinks, specialty Scotches, and bar bites, along with the full menu, which places a premium on seasonal, organic, sustainable, and humanely raised meats and ingredients. In addition to seasonally dressed tartares (steak and tuna) and weekly cuts of all-natural beef like the 14-ounce dry-aged New York sirloin, you'll find seafood specialties such as spicy native halibut with chimichurri that give beef sales a run for their money. Desserts, such as the decadent Valrhona chocolate layer cake, rank far above those of the average steak house. Make sure to leave room.
