I don't often write review's of the places we eat,and yet, I would consider ourselves to be" foodies", enjoying nice restaurants,often.
I really wished I could give this restaurant a better review, however, to say I was " extremely dissappointed" , would be a huge understatement!!.
When I called and asked after seeing they had a " private room", if it was available, kind of last minute , I was thrilled it was because it's quaint and nice when you are with 10 people for a birthday celebration!
That was pretty much the extent of " being thrilled", besides being in the company of family and friends. I would not have even minded that the service was very, very slow, but more importantly, the food was really terrible.. skimpy, burnt, and beyond expensive. Well over,
$1000.00 with tip! While I did expect to pay a fairly large sum for 10 people in NYC, I was truly shocked at how high the bill actually was! When I looked and saw for example, that 2 side orders of baked potatoes are $ 14.00.. Well, I thought it was a mistake.. yet, wouldn't have even questioned it that much if the quality was there for the steaks. If anyone has ever eaten at a Mastro's or Capital grill, Fleming's or Morton's, you get good quality and yet, you know you'll be paying for it. These were tiny, burnt steaks and while the pasta dishes were tasting ok,they were very, very skimpy with seafood.. as well as, not much pasta in them either!!
The staff was friendly and nice, but I really feel a bit robbed! Live and learn!
