La Coulevrine had been recommended to my wife and me. We made reservations for dinner. We were warmly welcomed by the maitre d'hotel and taken to our table upstairs. Order was taken and aperitifs delivered promptly. Our waiter seemed to have little knowledge of the wine list. My wife's cold pea soup starter (essentially tasteless) was delivered without a spoon. It was several minutes before a staff member (the maitre d')appeared and we requested a spoon. It was delivered by a third staff member with bad grace. My entree was grilled filets de rouget: 2 were OK but the third was almost raw. Our mains (lamb and beef) were OK but nothing special. Desserts were a rather dry summer fruit tart and "milk shake de fraises", which was in essence a pink ile flottante. No spoons were delivered and again it took some time for this to be remedied. The final straw was the refusal of the waiter to detach himself from a conversation with another diner to bring our bill. After 10 minutes of this we went downstairs and buttonholed another staff member who made up our bill and accepted payment, again without grace.
