Walking into the restaurant, and having seen the inside being so busy on numerous occasions, we had high expectations on what type of experience we were going to have. Unfortunately, we expected a little too much from this French Bistro. We waited for 15 minutes to be seated (Which was reasonable) and sipped on fantastic wine. Our server put us in a section with very little seating space, but eventually moved us to the next available table with more room. After we had settled in, we ordered our "Froid" and "Chaud" appetizers as well as our main courses. First up, the steak tartare (0/5); it was not very good. It kind of tasted like over pickled tuna, and we just couldn't get into it . Second, was the French Onion soup(3/5). This was acceptable, but a little too sweet. They also provided us with bread and butter with chicken pate, and that was good. We ordered three main courses; pork belly with scallops, the free range rotisserie chicken, and the coq au vin. Starting off with the pork belly, the flavors combined with the spices created a very tender and savory dish (4/5). The free range chicken would be my highlight. It was tender and juicy and very tasteful (5/5). Finally, the wine sauce paired with the mushrooms and chicken in the coq au vin, was magnificent (5/5). Each of these dishes were paired with home french fries, which were very good. So I would give the food a solid rating, based on the flavors and presentation. The service was HORRIBLE. We waited over 45 minutes to get our main courses. Our server never checked up on us, and didn't even bother to ask us how we were doing once the meals had arrived. In fact, she paid more attention to the tables surrounding us. It was unacceptable for 3 tables that had arrived after us to get their meals within the first 20 minutes. AND, she didn't even take the time to come to our table to let us know that there would be a delay on our food. Numerous times, we had to ask the other servers for extras. The only time our server came over to our table was to ask if we wanted our bill. My friend was so angry with the service that he was going to cause a scene, but I took it upon myself to talk to our server at the end of the night to tell her how we felt. We knew she had sensed our disappointment with her. But here's the fun part, when I explained to her how we felt, she took no responsibility for her actions and started to argue with me. I did not in any way, explain myself in a rude manner either. And to be honest, if the service was acceptable in the first place, I wouldn't have needed to talk to her at the end of the experience. In terms of the value, it wasn't too bad. Since the main courses were all delicious, I would say it was worth it. The ambiance of the restaurant was attractive and had a pleasant atmosphere. Overall, I think my rating would've been a lot higher had the service been better. In my opinion, what makes a great restaurant so successful is the full package they present to their guests. I think that the service along with the food is the most important factors to making a restaurant consistent. And frankly, the food may be solid, but if I can get better service from another place with solid food, then I would much rather spend my money elsewhere.
