Best steaks in charlotte PERIOD. – The Wine- 2004 Malbec was decanted and served, has good legs on the wine and a nice smooth taste.
The Beer- Dogfish Head IPA, out of bottle, wonderful as usual. Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale, out of bottle, wonderful.
The Appetizers- Perfectly cooked shrimp, with two kinds of sauces, the crab cakes were the best I've ever had, the sauce made it.
The Salad- Caesar salad was great, looked like lettuce chips with tasty parmesan cheese and the dressing was wonderful with just a hint of anchovies. Nice huge croutons!
The Side Items- Asparagus and cheese potatoes were great, the asparagus was cooked well with a nice snap when bitten into. And the potatoes complimented the steak well.
The Steak- 8 oz. Filet Mignon med/rare perfectly cooked and seasoned, a subtle taste of butter on the palate comes through nicely.
The Dessert- free with our party since we were celebrating a birthday. They didn't come out singing and embarrassing us which I liked. We had a chocolate cake with raspberry sauce with vanilla ice cream. While not a huge fan of dark chocolate the cake was undeniably delectable alone, pairing it with the ice cream made it even better.
The Service- Best service I've ever had. 3 waiters served us, one waiter in particular, Edward, was outstanding!
Worth the price and service in my opinion.
