We used to go to Crazy Horse under previous ownership - and we loved it! Didn't mind paying the prices because the food, service and environment was fantastic. I was disappointed w. the austere changes to the enviroment... it used to be cosy and bustling w. comfortable banquettes around the walls etc. and the tables used to be laid w. crisp white linen, w. fine dining service to match. It's now extremely austere, uncomforatble chairs - hideous pattered plastic things that you can neither perch on nor sit back in and relax. The steaks were FANTASTIC and so they should be as this is a steak restaurant... my husband had the 500g rib-on ribeye which was worth the 45 mins cooking time wait, melt-in-your-mouth and beautiful flavour. The entree offers were poor and unappealing. The starter/nibbles were non-existant - my husband had some warm bread w. avodcado oil - boring, literally plain white baguette on a plate. Being gluten-free there were not any options for me. The sides with the meals were also boring - no pomme frite which is a shame. We ordered the house version of 'steak fries' (which were fine, but just big chunks of fried potato), the scalloped potato for me (not good, made w. new potatoes, very hard and not properly reheated) & the coleslaw (freezingly cold staright out of a very cold fridge obviously. Also had a lot of red onion in it which tainted the entire dish, so we didn't eat that, shame). Why would they not have been offering a side of asparagus at this time of year? Wine list was uninspiring and as I was the only drinker, just wanted some things by the glass... very limited, so ended up w. a G&T and having only 1 glass of wine w. dinner (what the waiter did recommend was very nice and suited my steak). Service was excellent once we were at the table (a little eclectic when we arrived). Our wait staff were both wonderfully attentive w.out being annoying. Didn't feel inspired to stay for dessert/coffee - the sterile environment didn't welcome that sort of lazy post-dinner relaxation. The restaurant always used to be super busy packed out in the 'old days' but for a Friday night it was remarkably quiet - don't use the recession as an excuse - it's your enviroment, weak menu, poor wine list. Go for the steaks if you're craving some red meat but don't expect anything else.
