I took my wife and kids to the Chef's Table for Mother's Day brunch yesterday. I read the reviews and everything was positive, I guess I should of did more research. We where seated promptly and had our drink orders taken fairly quick. The menu had only 4 main items on it. My wife and I had the Eggs Benedict and my two kids each had an order of pancakes. My wife doesn't normally eat Eggs Benedict, but there was absolutely NOTHING on the extremely small menu that she could eat, besides this.
My kids' pancakes where overdone. You would think paying $18 for each order of pancakes they would at least cook it correctly. Anyway, my kids where hungry so they ate it anyway. For this high priced pancakes, you got a shaving of probably a quarter of a strawberry on the pancakes, and 3 small slivers of fruit on the side.
I had better tasting Eggs Benedict's at cheaper family restaurants. There wasn't really too much wrong with it, just not very tasty. Same thing as the pancakes, you would think for the price, you would get a better dish. Also with this being Mother's Day, they should had something special happening.
As for the atmosphere. It was nicely decorated inside. I just couldn't get over the fact that for guests to check out, they have to walk with their suitcases through the eating area. It was in poor taste to have people walking down the stairs with their suitcases right near your table. This was the reason I gave it a 2 out of 5 score.
I do understand that this is not a family restaurant. It is actually a pretentious wannabe restaurant. I don't mind paying $100 for breakfast for a family of 4, but only IF the food was worth the price. I have spent more on Mother's Day brunch for my wife and family, but at places that are actually worth the money. Places we leave satisfied and not frustrated. Like I said before, it is my fault for not researching enough.
