Had been here last christmas with 11 friends, the food was good and decided to try it with another group of friends.
A number of issues made it a bad night:
1. mgr grumbling about the fact we pointed out that 1 menu for the set menu special said $40 vs $55, none of the menus said it included wine paring. He told the server in a loud voice for us to hear to give use the price based on whe we pointed out.
2. server did not acknowledge us till we flagged her down, she only had 1 table and he was a single. The whole 2nd floor only had 4 tables including us on a friday night, the other table had another server. Once the single got settled she did focus on our table.
3.No cream for the expensive $4 regular coffee we ordered. She offerred and brought coffeemate, not very classy for an expensive italian place. Someone could have gone out to buy some cream, she said they ran out - what, on a Friday night, there is a 7-eleven close by, even the mom/pop restaurants run out to buy supplies if they run out.
4. Inconsistencies in the garnishes on the soup and the salad, strange for a high end place.
Not all was bad, the food was very tasty and we got lots of bread but attitude makes a big difference for an enjoyable evening out.
I feel bad since I recommended this place.
