I went with a group of friends on a Friday night for a friend's birthday dinner. When we arrived, I was quite impressed with the trendy vibe the place gave off. The restaurant seemed to be aiming for a "fine dining" type of environment, and it would succeed if patrons never went inside.
When I went inside, I was seated at my table. There was no coat check, which seemed strange for the type of prices they had on the menus. All of our coats were slung over our chairs, what made it worse was our server would constantly lean over them later to serve us our wine and entrees. My boyfriend's coat had a bit of wine splashed on it, which we didnt' realise it until after we left.
My friend ordered a bottle of wine, and our server really pushed her to order another bottle; he seemed very money oriented.
At any restaurant, usually you would order your appetizer, entree, and dessert all in one go. Our server decided to just take our orders for the appetizers, and then disappear. He later returned with our appetizers and served it, but our menus were still sitting in front of us! There was no space to eat, and we still had yet to order our entrees and desserts. While ordering appetizers he recommended that we order the Chop Platter ($35) to share. We asked the appropriate number to share one platter, and he had said with assurance that five to six people could share one. When the platter came, it was far from enough. But it seemed like a blessing - the food looked and tasted like it was bought from the frozen section in Costco, and reheated.
Finally, we ordered our entrees, I ordered a nine oz Sirloin Oscar with lobster fritters. It was originally seven oz, but I requested mine be upgraded to a nine oz. When the entree arrived, it was for sure not a nine oz steak. My friend sitting beside me ordered a seven oz steak and was exactly the same size as mine. When I asked the server if mine was indeed a nine oz, he assured me it was. The lobsters were too salty and the huge baked potato was not fresh. How a potato could taste so terrible is beyond me.
Let me stress that our server was not rude, but yet his service was terrible. I think he did try to be pleasant, but really, how could one mix up the ordering system?
I also noticed that there was only two other tables at the restaurant on a Friday night. This seems to speak for itself.
One thing that WAS positive was the washroom was really nice. If you're willing to pay $60/ person just to use the washroom, then this place is for you.
Neither myself or anyone in our party will be back.
