    Excellent choice for restaurant week. We had the shrimp bisque, prime rib, and filet sandwich with pecan pie for dessert. It was awesome. Old time place with classy setting and excellent service.

    Really good steaks and creme brulee. Service is amazing. Great old school atmosphere - red wall paper, red wrap around booths, wait staff in vests and ties.

    Not to be missed: the signature bread, which arrives bathed in a sinfully good garlic and leek butter sauce. Read more

    Debris and a martini at the bar. Bar doesn't require reservations, but they are highly recommended for a table. otherwise, you'll have an hour or more wait

    Not worth the money. Everything was mediocre and the waitress made several comments that made our anniversary celebration anything but memorable.

    Great steaks and seafood! I had the filet and scallops - both were delicious. The decor reminded me of a scene from a 50s movie - red leather booths, dim lighting.

    A Phoenix tradition. They don't make places like this anymore--get a banquette and pretend you're a mobster. Dimly lit and simply retro-fabulous. Just go!

    The best restaurant in Phoenix, bar none. End of conversation. Try the mushrooms as a side item, place it on the steak of your choice and begin to go to heaven. And I don't like mushrooms.
