Took dad to Bogart's for fathers day.
We were seated as soon as we walked in (7:30), the server was very attentive, brought our bread, water and drinks and took our orders in a timely manner. It took a little while for the food to show up, only slightly longer then I was expecting, no biggy, gave us more time to talk, relax and enjoy the fantastic cocktails (I highly recommend the Big City Blues).
When the food showed up it looked and smelled fantastic, was nice and hot (no sitting around on the hot plate) and tasted fantastic. Not to mention, all 3 of our steaks were cooked to perfection. My dad got a Striploin done Medium, I had a Medium Rare Striploin and my wife had the Veal Chop Medium Rare.
The steaks and chop were all the perfect size, perfectly cooked and very, very tasty. I usually hate fat on my steaks since most people don't cook them right it always ends up chewy, well, not this time around, it was like warm melting butter, just delicious. The presentation was simple and attractive and the serving of asparagus was a nice portion and quite tasty.
Everyone loved their meals, my wife especially. She said the Veal Chop was absolutely fantastic and it looked great.
Only 2 small complaints on the night: My dad got a rum and coke and asked for the rum and coke to be separate, when it came it was mixed. I made reservations at 7:30 so we could enjoy the live Jazz music at 8:00, but it was just a bit to loud for my liking, very enjoyable music, but slightly louder then I was expecting and it made it difficult to chat.
Overall a great experience, great food and great atmosphere. Bogart's puts the Keg and the likes to shame in all respects and we will be going back again.
Total bill was $146 w/ tax, before tip. We had 2 Striploin steaks, 1 Veal Chop, 3 Cocktails, 2 Highballs and 3 Beers. Not a bad price for the quality of everything.
