Good for the Eastside.
DC's has brought fine dining to the plateau, although it comes at a price. When they first opened, the meals were inclusive of salads, now they are a la carte, and the salads are extra. Also, the prices have gone up quite dramatically in the past year. The prices are not too high yet, so hopefully they will stop the price hikes that seem to happen every few months or so.
That being said, the steaks are very good. The DC's Bleu Cheese salad is wonderful and desserts are great. The service is alway good. The deck is a great place to dine in the summer.
Over Rated. Our experience at DC's was disappointing. Service was very mediocre and the steak was not much better. We originally tried to get into Jak's, but the wait was 2 hours. The wait would have been worth it, DC's did not compare. Better food, service, and value at Jak's. The tables near the bar are too close, ask to sit in main seating area if you decide to try DC's.
Nice Suburban Steakhouse.
We dropped in at 4:30 and ordered two appetizers ( calamari and Kalbi beef) and two blue cheese salads.
Our waiter Dante was friendly but not overly chatty, around but not hovering.
The salads were tasty. Good-sized chunks of blue cheese, a slightly creamy dressing, fresh crispy romaine.
The Kalbi appetizer was delicious! The meat was tender and cooked just right.
The calamari was a no better than an average bar appetizer. Deep fried, with too much breading. A fork stabbed into the dish usually always picked up empty breading -- sometimes only that.
We ordered a fish n' chips from the kid's menu for our son. It was far better than the calamari, at half the price. Lightly breaded, great texture.
No, it's not Daniel's or the Met. But it's good food, good service, and a nice atmosphere. And moderately kid friendly.
Where's the ribs?. This is one of our favorite restaurants because they have great food and a pleasant atmosphere. However, they recently revamped the menu and deleted the ribs. My boyfriend usually orders either the ribs or steak so we were very disappointed. That said, the ceasars are pretty tasty as are the scampi prawns and filet mignon. They also have great patio seating in the summer. A minor note: avoid Roger the server; he's rude, disdainful, and balks if you use a coupon.
A good night out. Made reservations same day and was seated promptly when arriving on time. Food was delicious, and service was outstanding.... they let us turn our dinner into a 4 hour event without any complaint! The blackened prime rib was the toast of the night, and the featured shrimp cocktail was excellent. Go on your birthday, and get a free lobster dinner (as my friend did, the very next night!)
just another sizzler. There was really nothing special about DC's other than it was close to my home. The service was ok but the menu was not very diverse. They certainly are not in the same league with Daniels Broiler, The Met or El Gaucho's. I would place them slighty above Sizzler. We actually had fliet cut in half and grilled that way to 'speed' up our order so that things would arrive at the same time. Damn shame what they did to that poor piece of meat!
Yuck. The steaks will hold you over until you can get to Jak's but don't even dare to try the seafood. I must admit the manager was fantastic when my date had a complaint and he only charged us for the wine.
Salty's restraurant. I must have been sick because everything was way too salty. Thankfully the vegetables were cooked just right. I tried the salmon cesear but it was not the right combination. Too vinegry and salty. They replaced it with a lovey steak but that had too much salt too. I liked the interior of the place. It is intimate yet open. The waiter came by at all the right times. I will try again with my children before I move off this crowded plateau.
EXCELLANT!!. This was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten!!! I highly recommend every steak lover tries this restaurant.
Best in the West... I mean East. Incredible food! Delicious specials! I'm there multiple times a week. A nice escape from the city life with great wines and the best service around. Robert Frost, G.M. keeps a great hold on his employees and knows how to treat his guests right! Even JaK's couldn't compare to the great menu that DC's provides, the only reason they're rated higher is because they've been around longer. Just give DC's some time, you'll finally realize that they're the best!
