We ate at the restaurant in August 2004. We were staying in the area and were looking forward to a real treat.
The food was fine. The decor was too dark for my taste, but it was okay. The service, however, was a joke! The waitstaff kept messing up, giving us other people's dishes, etc., and never apologizing for the mistakes. After a while, we just had to laugh at how bad it was.
What bothered me the most, though, was that the couple next to us -- who, if anything, got even worse service -- nevertheless tipped 20 percent! Come on, people . . . if you reward incompetent service, there's absolutely no incentive for the staff to improve.
We won't be back.
