Compared to other steak houses in the city, it's not as modern as places like Del Friscos or BLT Prime. It feels like an old school steakhouse, but at the same time doesn't exude the same old-time bare bones feel as Keane's does.
The service was pleasant and our server was attentive. My only qualm was when he cringed his nose and shook his head when I ordered the Filet Mignon instead of the Rib Steak. He can cringe all he wants, but I really enjoyed the Filet!!
Appetizers: we ordered the Fried Calamari and the Tomato with Bufala Mozzarella. Basic choices, they were good but nothing special to note.

Last but especially not least, what steak dinner is complete without a bottle of red wine?? We loved the Sequoia Grove 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Before even tasting it, I knew I would love love love this bottle. 2007 was a stellar year for California Cabernets. To top that, this wine hails from the Rutherford region in Napa, which I have a biiig soft spot for!
Fun fact: That region yields wines made from grapes which have a distinct character referred to as "Rutherford Dust". Don't worry, it doesn't actually taste dusty! In my opinion it does taste earthy, mineral-y and you pick up the tannins that are in the wine. My favorite wines are from this region, and Sequoia Grove's 2007 Cabernet was no exception. It was so good that we got another bottle!
