After seeing the menu posted on the GN website my wife and I deceided to have dinner there this past weekend. We got there around 5 for some drinks and appetizers. They have a happy hour with assorted appetizers for $6.00 and drinks like cosmos for $5.00 and assorted beers at $4.00.
Now we go to a lot of happy hours and never have I been so disappointed with the size of the portions.
We ordered calamari and a fried vegetable sticks.
Well what a shock when they arrived. There were 8 half vegetable sticks and a very small portion of calamari.
Hey at $6.00 they weren't giving them away. I could have gone to Patsy's at the Atlantic Club for their H.H. and would have got a full size portion for $4.00.
On the up side the cosmos we ordered were made in a full size glass and were made very well.
I told the waitress how disappointed I was with the size of the portions before we placed our dinner order. She assured us that the dinner portions were full size so we both ordered the chicken parm at $19.99 each.
Again a big disappointment. Although the food was very tasty, the portion size once again was small.
Italian restaurants are usually noted for their portion size, and being from Long Island we are used to full size meals.
One small piece of chicken with a small portion of pasta was about it.
The bill for the 2 of us with tax and tip came out to $92.00.
There is nothing more to say except that I will never return.
I left hungry and had to stop to get a bite to eat after the meal.
Looking for a really good Italian restaurant In AC? Look to Patsy's at the Atlantic Club. You will not be disappointed there.
