I took my Husband to the Peninsula for his birthday dinner. It would have been a nice evening & dinner if it were not for the bad stuffed mushroom appetizer. Upon its arrival we smelled a "bad" odor coming from the plate & were quite skeptical. We should have heeded our skepticism, but both took a small bite (about 1/6 of a mushroom cap each) and confirmed that it truly was bad. We sent it back, and our waiter asked if we'd like to substitute a different appetizer, and we decided that yes we would. After a bottle of wine, appetizer, 2 entrees, and a birthday dessert slowly served by a mediocre waiter, we waited about 10 minutes for our waiter to give us some eye contact, then finally got our bill. As expected the birthday dessert was free. Unexpectedly, though, we were charged for our substitute appetizer. We did not have time to speak to our server - we were already running late for a local performance (at the Catherine Hickman playhouse) - otherwise we would have asked why we were charged. Currently (5 hours after dinner) we are still paying for our 1st appetizer - fighting over who gets the bathroom.
The least that should have been done was to provide our appetizer at no charge. And if that had been done, I would not likely be writing this bad review.
If you go here, just be careful of what you order and ASK QUESTIONS if you don't think something is right. Good luck...
