Three of us for dinner Wednesday last. The Pumpkin Soup delicious. The steaks were not what was anticipated. The T-Bone was quite thin, fatty and VERY chewy. The 2 Tournedos - Eye Fillets were possibly the worst presentations of medium-rare beef we have EVER experienced. After the Chef sent the waiter out to our table to ask us "would we mind if he butterflied them to hasten the cooking process", I knew immediately we were in for trouble. We waited for 1.5 hours to get them (so much for the butterflying). One was past well done and like shoe leather, the other was medium on one end and bordering on well the other. The shoe leather steak was taken back to the kitchen, and when it re-appeared (finally) it was un-butterflied and how they both should have been presented originally. Who the hell was in charge in the kitchen? Having an International Chef in our family, we have some idea of how Fillet Steaks and T-bones should be selected and cooked, and it definitely was NOT done at the HV Steakhouse.
