Table too high compared to banquette.

Steak ordered medium rare but was served medium almost well. Was replaced.
Ordered sauteed rapini with onions received steamed rapini. Was replaced.

Birthday cake with sparkler was unceremoniously dumped on the table.

Nary a smile from the waitstaff.

Overrated, overpriced,underwhelming. So many other excellent restaurants to choose from. Will not return.

J’ai été mangé dimanche soir. Et la nourriture était pas à mon gout. Calmar très dur. Et j’avais demandé mon filet mignonette médium saignant et j’ai reçu un steak bleu. Crevette beaucoup trop cuite elles étaient dur comme la roche.

Merci

Been going to the Rib for over 20 years. This visit was by far the worst. Service, which was once impeccable, seems to be non-existant. No follow ups, no check-ins or requests to see if we needed anything else by the wait staff. If they did, we would have told him that all 4 of our steaks were over cooked. This was not the Rib im used to. Hope it was just an off night, but when service and quality are both lacking on the same night, its a sign that more attention needs to be paid by the management.

First time going. Absolutely loved the service. No doubt that the quality of food was grade A+...that been said, I find that, with those higher quality steakhouses, the quality of the meat will be A-1, but there will be next to no seasoning...and I'm a seasonin guy!

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Great menu choices. We tried both the Rib and the reef options and both were equally delicious!

Great location that needs some freshening up.
Waiter was not detail oriented or very attentive. Older male staff need to present themselves better.
Prices are $$$$ to be expected. Extensive wine list with majority of wines over $100 per bottle.
Too bad I did not have time to enjoy a Cigar and a Scotch after dinner.

Our first time there. Oct 19/19

Service was excellent, but for the price, we found the food below par from what we have heard. My "signature plate" roast beef, was chewy and well done. Left half of it over. Our rack of lamb was done as asked, but also bland. Not much to say about side dishes except the could use a bit of seasoning.

Sorry but I guess it will be awhile till we decide to try it again.

Was greeted with a smile. Took an hour too get our food. The waiters were knowledgeable
The meat was not cooked properly and they didnt do nothing to fix it. Very over priced.

Excellent food and impeccable service in a wonderful atmosphere. Fish and vegetables prepared as they should be. Excellent decaf coffee to finish off the meal was served with biscotti. Loud neighbors at the next table. Waiter forgot about us after serving coffee and waited a long time to pay. That gave us more time to enjoy the ambiance and reflect on the wonderful time we were having.

Une excellente place! Très bon service et bonne nourriture. Le cigar lounge était la cerise sur le gateau, mon fiancé a adoré. Cependant, les vins sont overpriced. Mon fiancé n’a pas de limite quand nous sortons manger, mais les choix de vins et leur prix l’ont déçu. Sinon, excellent!

everything you want from a serious steakhouse, and I mean that in a classy way. Great food, excellent service, classic decor, awesome ambience. If you are a large group then book ahead and get the wine cellar!

we had gone for our first anniversary 24 years ago and decided to go back for our 25th. the food was excellent but it seemed that the waiters were rushed. no conversation, no ambiance, no asking us if we had any questions about the menu. and it was a tuesday evening, not like it was full at all.
it cost us 500.00 for two people so we definitely werent a cheap table.

in the future we will consider going somewhere else.
