Quaint neighborhood steakhouse. Section of wines was on the sweet side. Average steak and vegetable. The pleasant, casual ambience was the best feature. Reservations seem to be required since it often seems to be a full house.

Steaks are fabulous. Decor is understated. Service was outstanding with two servers taking care of our table. Soft music in the background. Understated more subdued atmosphere. Creme brulee was delicious.This is king of the hill surrounded by a dozen other restaurants!

The building is dated but this adds to the quaintness of this restaurant. The chefs are Brazilian and have a lot of influence from their homeland in their cooking. Churasco Steaks were amazing and reasonably priced. Certainly a place to go

No specific dress code when I've been there. Most wear neat/dressy casual. Jeans aren't uncommon, but with collared shirts - not sneakers/shorts/t-shirts.
