"We had such a great time at Hyde Park! Our server, Paul, was truly the best. We had a fairly large party and Paul was attentive to all of us. I had the Chilean sea bass which was very flavorful and flaky. Majority of the table had filets. Half of those who ordered the a filet were pleased while the others felt it was too salty. There was a person in our group who was vegetarian and Paul actually had the chef prepare an off-menu vegetarian pasta meal just for her.  Overall we were pleased with our visit and will return next time we're in town." -Yelp Review

Perfectly grilled steaks, high-end service, and an all-around luxurious experience take time to master. With more than 60 years under their belts, The Top steak house knows a few tricks. From the day that they opened their doors in April 1955 to today, little has changed. The same house pianist that has been playing since 1965 still serenades diners almost nightly. Dimly lit leather booths surrounded by dark paneling are perfect for an intimate meal or special celebration. A long, shiny copper bar welcomes both regulars and tourists to tip back a glass of their favorite scotch, whiskey, or other beverage. While it's gone through three owners since opening, The Top has never lost its classic supper club-style steak house feel.

The Top specializes in char-broiled steaks, as well as pork chops and lamb loin chops. Alongside standard steak house sides like mashed potatoes, you can also enjoy truffle mac and cheese, roasted asparagus topped with hollandaise, and twice baked potatoes.

"The Top is an excellent restaurant. The vibe gives off a nice, swanky, mafioso vibe - as though you might turn the corner and bump into Frank Sinatra!They had a pianist playing live music and it made for a great atmosphere. My friend and I were seated at a nice private booth.The food was amazing! We had the oysters and I went with the prime rib. Everything was seasoned and cooked to perfection. I might have considered a dessert but I couldn't eat anymore because I was so full with the generous portions.They had an excellent wine and cocktail selection as well.The service is impeccable. Our server was timely and efficient. Overall, it was a perfect experience and I will definitely be back!!" -Yelp Review

I NEVER order Mac and cheese at a nice restaurant as a side dish but it was recommended so we went for it. And wow. Went back in a few days to get a pick up order just of the Mac and cheese. Ha!   While the food left us  speechless the real shining Star was our incredible waiter. He was attentive without being over bearing, made incredible recommendations without being pushy, and was a just SO knowledgeable about the food and menu.  I truly felt that he was thee to ensure we had the best dining experience we could.

The portions are larger than expected as well. We had plenty of leftovers and didn't even make it to desert. We had Caesar salad, the lobster Mac and Cheese (abundance of lobster!), stuffed chicken breast, and steak sandwich (made with filet). The desert we have not made it to was cheesecake. Too full." -Yelp Review
