What is with this place - four of us went for dinner last night . Two of us got served with their bottle of wine almost immediately. The other two were waiting for almost 40 minutes for the other bottle of wine to arrive. One would imagine they were searching high and low for a bottle shop in the suburbs to find what i wanted. Mind you i had ensured that they had the wine i wanted more than two weeks ago and it was also written on the reservation. What do you call that for service , i would think unacceptable.
The female maitre de was extremely short with us to the point of almost being rude - again what is with the staff there . The only redeeming staff member - Luca was obliging and sweet and tried to curb our impatience at two of us waiting almost 40 minutes for our drinks .
The other redeeming feature was the excellent mushroom risotto ( which i am sure had truffle through it - yum ) and the slow cooked beef cheeks on polenta which were gorgeous - so hats off to the chef for those . The starter was un appetising - one prawn on a plate with one salad leaf about 2 inches big - hmmm whats that all about ?
Deserts were ok - and impressed the others on the table - chocolate chocolate and more chocolate presented well though - it's too bad i dont especially like chocolate.
Would i go back again ? maybe - if the staff are more attentive perhaps -a new more humble maitre de would be great
its all about the dining experience - but we had a nice time despite the drinks coming so late.
