John Howie Steak Restaurant Review

: John Howie Steak elevates the traditional steakhouse experience --- it raises the bar by focusing on details and quality, just as John Howie’s Seastar did for seafood. The sexy lounge is popular at happy hour and the spacious dining room hosts power lunches. At night, the space takes on a mellow glow, and private booths can ensure an intimate evening. The steaks are USDA Prime: filet mignon, porterhouse and bone-in rib-eye, to name a few. Can’t decide? Order the combo to compare. Mesquite creates a smoky flavor and light crust to keep in the juices. Or check out the bacon cheeseburger, prime rib, juicy chops and a daily fresh sheet of seafood, such as Parmesan-crusted halibut. For sides, consider the creamed spinach or enormous, five-cheese stuffed potato. Bananas Foster and the lighter Meyer lemon pie are dessert options. Since beef is the star, the wine program is heavy on reds (bottles range from $19-$2,100), and there are 60 by-the-glass choices. Service is attentive and gracious.

I was really looking forward to my dining experience after reading some reviews about John Howie Steak. However, I'm afraid I was left let down. My husband and I were on a date night (which we don't get often), so we were looking forward to a relaxing night of amazing steak and wine. The ambiance wasn't great - we were seated in what looked like the entry hallway even though we made reservations well in advance. Once there, the wait staff was overly attentive to the point where they tried to take my appetizer plate away three different times before I was finished. When my steak arrived, the plate appeal was boring....just a filet on a huge white plate. We literally finished our dining experience in less than 60 minutes.
