Make No Miss Steak Nov 27, 2015
Their sign proudly states “Virginia’s Finest Steakhouse” and it is a lovely spot to score some quality beef, though a bit lacking in total elegance. The location is not inviting, a dilapidated side street in Charlottesville and while the service and food were top shelf, several demerits.
I visited the restaurant almost immediately after hooking up with my buddy John, so we were quite happy to be reunited and looking forward to a good time. Expectations were immediately quashed as John plucked a stink bug from his water glass. I will be the first to tell you these harmless critters proliferate this time of year and are truly no concern, but a rather rude surprise at an upscale restaurant. Worse yet, John had to ask our waiter to exchange his fork because it was dirty!
Once we got beyond these difficulties, the balance of the experience was lovely. We both ordered the Prime Rib (John opting for the thick cup). My chunk of meat was well prepared, fresh, and phenomenally tasty. Service was exceptional and we enjoyed tunes from the piano player in their bar area.
