-we were not allowed to eat our own cake, their reason was allergy problems, but they still displayed the cake to us
-end up they gave me a free dessert and i was happy
-same as the reviews i have read, only steak is good here for entrees
-appetizers were pretty good but pricy
-seating upstairs in a corner so not as noisy as others suggests
-nice servers and environment
-no sides to steaks, have to order own
-steaks were somewhat overcooked from requested
-tenderloin was really tender, felt like too tender, ended switching plates with newyork strip, was too firm, to relieve each other
-used gift cards from Costco ($80 for $100) and also a coupon ad from Chinese newspaper (15% off), if no discount, not worth coming

Style: steak, west coast
