Well, I've been a really closeted dining type so my sister decided to get me gift certificates for this place so I could try something new - her biggest mistake.
Ordered the grilled calamari to start - yuck. It was tough, had a thick seafoody smell and taste (like it had gone bad) and such a small portion for $12.
Ordered the house caesar salad - ehn. The dressing was a little different (a cross b/w thousand island and caesar) but that wasn't the problem. It cost $8 but only contained 6 or 7 giant leaves of lettuce (a dollar a leaf??!??). And the leaves were wilting around the edges... the least they could have done is get some good lettuce for a dollar a leaf.
My boyfriend had the ostrich and I had a chicken breast entree. Wasn't so bad. Small portions but I think that might have been the theme of this place... Decided to skip dessert cuz the dinner had been so disappointing.
Waiter was friendly, and made sure there were NO crumbs on our table a few times after the complimentary bread had been served. However, upon paying, I saw him take the bill to the machine, he opened it up, saw the gift certificates in there, opened up the gift certificates, rang in our bill and brought it back without the gift certificates included!!! He then claimed he hadn't seen them and thought they were business cards - liar. He then gave us the wrong bill after the certificates were rung in but no matter cuz it was cheaper. Ha! At least we got some of our money back...
Excellent wine selection (although there are plenty of other places that do) and the ambiance is fantastic, great for a first date if you wanna eat crappy food.
