I've been here with the previous management and liked it. I didn't expect to have a negative experience after others said it had improved.
Sun night, I and my sister ate there..... I was tired, didn't notice as the 'host' placed us in the worst table in the room. a table for two directly in the line of traffic between bar, kitchen and outdoor busy patio.... constant foot traffic rushing, back and forth back and forth. Just plain stupid.
BTW this is a VERY large room with ,..at this time, only 3 other tables occupied and DOZENS empty. A normal expectation would be to put us at a table.. for 4..elsewhere where we might possibly have enjoyed whatever ambience there was.. ( the entire time we were there, NO ONE joined the dining room,) I should have asked to be moved. .. ..
The pleasant waitor didn't introduce himself but after a few minutes his affected/pretentious demeanor was annoying. There was a page of dishes on left side of menu that didn't have prices. (why go to the trouble of typing this, printing it and inserting it without that 'detail' . ? ) When the waitor started describing them, I interruped and asked the price. Now, after three times doing this..most waitors would have started adding that to the description seeing as how I was interested.. but by the third time I asked, I said," I write reviews for Trip Advisor and don't other people ask the prices, ?' He didn't hesitate as he said NO. this answer was, I suppose..designed to make me feel embarressed. It didn't. It made me irritated.
BTW some of the specials were very very pricy.
ok. food.. Bread on table, fabulous. garlic, toast and bread. House Chardonnay ($ 8) good. We had a salmon bisque that was so good, (shallow dish) we had to order a second. yum.
then. We also ordered a salad .
I ended up with two salads. duh.
( most waitors in my experience would point out that a salad was coming with dinner . I guess I didn't see that on menu)
a very lackluster chicken marsala with mushrooms..shallots.. good size portion but lots of calories without justification!
also a better fish dish.. Sauteed St Peters fish what ever that is. Waitor never came back. we left $ on table. and whatever enthusiasm we had arrived with .
$ 87.30 before tip.
