I ordered the 5oz filet mignon with vegetables because I can't eat the amount of steak usually served in steak houses. The house salad which is included in the price of the main course was acceptable although the curls of carrot are a bit difficult to eat with decorum. However, when the meat dish arrived I was startled by its presentation. A very small piece of steak - all right I did ask for the 5oz - accompanied by - da da - two sticks of soggy and tough broccoli and a sprig of parsley. No potatoes, no sauce for the steak and "vegetables" meant two inedible sticks of broccoli? I tried the broccoli but couldn't cut it with my knife. The steak was rather dry especially without any sauce and not very tender. When the waitress came by to see if everything was "all right" I had to tell her that for the money - an amazing $26 - I was not pleased. I asked to see the manager who came and explained to me that this was a new healthy way of preparing the broccoli by baking it in the oven!!! So healthy that no-one would eat it, probably. I said that for the price I expected potatoes and at least a sauce for the steak. He told me that I could have sauce at an extra price. Now really this is supposed to be a steak house. How much more would I have to pay for the smallest filet mignon you will ever find on a menu to get a sauce, a potato and some decent vegetables. He persisted somewhat in making excuses but eventually I said I would not eat it. I was eventually compensated with a completely different dish with a medley of vegetables which the waitress ensured would make up for the first dish. I believe she was embarassed, too.
Canadians travel a lot and expect more for their money in restaurants. Frankly, I felt ripped off. Visitors to our capital would not get a good impression of our city if they are served meals like this at these prices.
