This 11,000 square foot restaurant has a sleek, contemporary decor with leather, cast glass, parquet flooring, polished wood panels, and recessed lighting creating a soothing ambiance.
The bar is appealing to high roller sportsmen with three flat-screen monitors, and a tequila sunrise back light that comes through the openings of the huge wine rack behind the bar.
This is a meat lovers paradise, although there are many selections of quality seafood on the menu. True meat lovers would be reluctant to use steak sauces but Bobby Flay's is exceptional and not to be missed. As with most steak houses, the menu is strongly à la carte, Intriguing side dishes
However, Bobby Flay Steakhouse falls below the top tier steakhouses such as Morton's and Ruth's Chris who use USDA Prime beef. USDA choice, a grade down from USDA Prime, is served at Bobby Flay Steakhouse. For food quality, a Star is lost because of the absence of USDA Prime beef.
Note: USDA Prime is the superior grade with exceptional tenderness, juiciness, flavor and fine texture. It has the highest degree of fat marbling and is derived from younger beef. That's why Prime is generally featured at the most exclusive upscale steakhouse restaurants.
USDA Choice is the second highest graded beef. It has less fat marbling than Prime. Generally USDA Choice will be less tender, juicy and flavorful with a slightly more coarse texture than Prime.
The service is professional, and knowledgeable, though at times less attentive
