May 16, 2006

Atmosphere is lively, slightly crowded, bright and fresh as the facility is reasonably new. The dining rooms are accented with wine lockers and displays of wine bottles through accentuating their attention to wine oriented dining as a complement to great steaks. This is a steakhouse first and foremost although they feature a broad selection of seafood as well. Their affiliated  restaurant, Charley's Steakhouse is nationally recognized and carries several major awards but they have almost identical menus. Vito's winelist is broader and deeper.
Atmosphere - 4.5/5

Food - The beef is aged and carefully selected and cut daily on premises by the staff. There is a  broad selection of beef and seafood and an adequate selection of starters and deserts. The servings are super-sized and come ala carte. Steaks were very good. Their style to offer massive desserts detracts from their effectiveness as they force sharing of one selection vs. individual selections by each diner.
Food - 4.5/5

Wine - The wine list is broad and deep. They have a reasonable corkage policy allowing special dinners to be enjoyed with special wines which was important since we had a special group and  occasion. See Wine Journal.
Wine - 4.5/5

Service was adequate but not particularly personable or attentive.
Service - 3.75/5

Overall Rating - 17.25/20
