Since moving into the area, I've had quite a few people recommend this restaurant. I don't get it. Several people have mentioned the steaks, and they're good, but not outstanding ... I had better steaks at other restaurants in the area. Other dishes I've tried have been poorly cooked ... often oversalted and overdone, and I've never been accused of liking my food rare. The lounge area is OK, the main restaurant area is noisy and crowded (not because of the number of diners, just because of the number of tables and their arrangement). The whole restaurant is too dark, in my opinion.
The thing I really disliked was the attitudes of the staff. With the possible exception of a couple of the bartenders, the rest of the staff seems to be usually at best uncaring, and often downright unfriendly. The hostesses in particular are almost nasty. I know some people might not care about that, but to me it indicates the attitude that the management has to the business.
It's too bad, because the restaurant has a nice location ... near the Anderson library, on a side street in a quiet spot. That's where the good atmosphere ends, before you get in the door.
