Visited Yonkers raceway last night and dined in the Empre Terrace Room. Knew we were in trouble when hostess could not find our reservation.The place was practically empty and so reservation was not something we really needed. Waitress who was very friendly came by and said she'd be back. Eventually after a long time she did return and took our drink orders. She brought me a Manhattan that I think was prepared in a thimble. When I questioned it she had some story about the size of the container it was mixed in. The next one was of an appropriate size. My associate ordered diet coke so not too hard to get correct. We were given one glass of water for the entire evening and no bread while those around us were given both. I would have thought giving the hostess $20 would have prompted her to make sure we were well taken care of, guess not. My NY Strip was pretty good and cooked perfectly and I guess for $41.00 it should have been, my friend's steak was "just OK". The Cearsar salad was $9.25 and over priced with soggy croutons. We did have a nice window table to watch the races, so that was good. We were seated before the hostess was tipped. Not sure I'd return.
