Savoy..no way, no how! – This night out had the potential to be pleasant and was wrecked by our trip to Savoy. All started out well with our party of 5 celebrating a couple occasions. Initially the service was alright, the atmosphere a bit pretentious but acceptable. I won't speak for those eating the other meals other than to say the reviews were mixed, however, I will speak to mine. I ordered the Beef Two Ways, a cube of filet and sliced brisket with mushrooms. The portion size was on the small end for the price but not terrible. The brisket was done quite well and actually very good, not so with the filet. The tiny (1.25") cube of filet was cooked to the proper state and looked nice, albeit small, and when I took my fork to it there was a 1/2" SLAB OF FAT all the way down the side of it! DISGUSTING! For a $35 plate this should be Excellent and it's not even close. Thouroughly dissappointed with my meal, I decided to step outside and have a smoke. Mind you, I'm the one picking up the tab for this evening. After 5 minutes outside having a smoke while waiting for another round of cocktails, I open the door only to have a "security" guy come running to stop me! I was then told in a very unpleasant tone that I wasn't allowed in the restaurant because my shoes don't meet thier dress code! It was fine an hour ago.....but now I am no longer an acceptable customer! I explained tersly that I was in the middle of my dinner already and was finally allowed to reenter. Upon be PERMITTED to return to my table I took a look around at some of the other guests...one gentleman dressed in a jogging suit and sneakers, another in designer jeans and chuck taylor sneakers. This sealed the deal for me. I purposly didn't make an issue at that moment as the night was to be celebrating events for two others in our party but i can tell you this: I WILL NEVER SET FOOT IN THIS PLACE AGAIN! The food was mediocre, the service was slow and I nearly got thrown out before I paid the $250 bill!
