1. Steak Diane ordered for $27, good piece of meat- okay but NOT steak Diane just some oddball sauce. 2. Cheese ravioli ordered with Italian sausage. Good ravioli served with diced, fried sausage bits used for pizza topping. Pfui.

The waiter seemed annoyed to even be there - the coffee arrived and two of them smelled like they had mixed the carafes with the regular coffee... More
