Dislike service – I want to first clear up that I did not even continue to make a reservation after the response I received from a simple question I made. I was interested in reserving a table for a party of approximately 15 people. My question was simply what are the food/drink requirements for a party that large because some places do "suggest" a particular selection in the menu. The distasteful response I received from the administration was that they trust that clients are not going to take up restaurant space away from other people and if I just want drinks and appertizers then I could just to sit at the bar.
I took my party to a more upscale spot and had a great time!
Body Disaster – When we got to the venue it seemed nice enough, we had a reservation and were promptly escorted to our table. They placed us in a small table near the wall which wasn't the best spot in the room so we asked to see if we could get another table which they did accommodate.
This however was the start of what became one problem after the next. Apparently their system is not robust enough to handle something as simple as a table change. It took forever for us to get our drinks. Then when they finally took our order they "misheard" and brought us the wrong appetizers, twice. After this we waited approximately an hour for our entrees which arrived cold. Have you ever tasted cold fillet mignon? They didn't have a desert menu; the waiter ineptly described the deserts which were not as advertised when they arrived. Then finally after waiting about 45 minutes for our bill we received a bill with items we did not order which we asked them to remove which I was assured was corrected. The coup d'grace was when I got home and checked my bank statement online only to discover that I was billed twice.
In other words eat here at your peril.
