During Thanksgiving break, we managed finally go here for a dinner. I say "finally" because I kept hearing epic things about this place. It took over an El Torito that had been there for ages, and when it El Torito shut down, and Alexander's took over, I didn't think much of it, until the rave reviews I kept hearing. Figured it was a perfect place to celebrate my friend Vicky's birthday.
We made reservations through Opentable.com. No issues there. Upon arrival, while we waited for Vicky and Cam to arrive, we sat in their comfy waiting area while Owen sipped on a red wine he liked (didn't think to remember to ask what he drank.) He seemed to enjoy it.
Once Vicky and Cam got there and we were seated, we were hit with the bad news. They had run out of prime rib. Bummer! The menu had plenty of other things to offer, however. This is what we ended up getting -
The verdict - excellent food. The service was good, but it does drag - there were long instances between courses, so don't have plans for later in the evening. We didn't mind as we were busy catching up. It was a meal worthy of a special occasion. Guess we'll have to come back for the prime rib next time.
