Coffee? But what about their steaks? Do they have great burgers?

Had burger there Friday. $13.70. Added cheese, .50 and grilled onions .50 so $14.70.

Good burger but nothing special. Can get same quality at multiple other establishments for half the price.

Friend had their "French dip". Not impressed. Not much meat and not comparable to France dip at City Fire.

We ate there last week. Sat at the bar. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very nice. I had the filet with béarnaise sauce. It was cooked perfectly and was excellent. My wife had the lamb shank and she said it was the best she ever had. We really enjoyed the entire experience and will certainly return.

We all had the 5 ounce Filet Mignon and they were delicious. Two out of the four were cooked as ordered which was mine any my husband's. As for our friends, theirs were under cooked. Only one was sent back because it was not edible as it was.

Drawn butter was not brought for one of the surf (lobster tail) and turf meals. My husband's meal was served without the lobster meat (on the menu as Filet Mignon and lobster meat) and he did order it correctly. In fact, the waiter verified that my husband was not ordering the lobster tail but just the lobster meat. To make up for not bringing the lobster meat, they brought him a lobster tail with drawn butter after a wait of about 10 minutes. That is when we realized our friend's meal of surf and turf should have been served with drawn butter.

Things weren't perfect with the meals or the service but I chalk this up to restaurant and staff growing pains. As I said in my previous post, we will be back but we will give them some time to get their act together.

Forgot to mention, hubby and I had the Bearnaise sauce with our Filet Mignon. The sauce was very good but not the best I have tasted. I tasted the Gorgonzola butter that my friend ordered and that is what I'm going to order next time when I have Filet Mignon. That butter was scrumptious!

“Four of us were looking forward to eating there especially since they advertise “prime” cuts of beef. All of us ordered the Delmonico rib eye. When a place charges $48 for a steak you'd expect to be able to cut it with a fork, however, even the knives had a hard time. The only thing hot was the baked potato. One person had the green beans which were cold and tasteless. Another paid extra for the brussel sprouts and they were barely warm. I would have brought my concerns to the manager but I didn’t want to embarrass my dining companions. However, after we left they brought up the same concerns. Bottom line if you’re going to charge premium prices, your food better be of premium quality. A couple of positive things; the mini artichoke appetizer was very good and they serve Pepsi products.
By the way Longhorn's ribeyes were much better, served warmer and half the price.”

I’m a snowbird...did I just lose points😂...like most people in TV my husband and I eat out quite often. I appreciate the many choices of restaurants; but look forward to an upscale experience only an short drive from my home.

Do a little price comparison with Mark's Prime, a Delmonico is a style of cut it doesn't have to come from a ribeye, but it can--to those who had the Delmonico a the Chophouse, how thick was the steak--if it was under 2" , its tough to get it tender

You all paid 48 dollars for Delmonico and were embarrassed to bring up a concern to management? Pepsi products? Sounds like Longhorn has a customer for life.
