Well, we went in to have lunch today (Monday, July 23) and we were the first to be seated, right when the restaurant opened. Weren't in a hurry, so we were happy to order their FABULOUS Baked Brie (one of the few bright spots in the meal) and a couple of drinks...started out good, then after ordering our entrees, it all went downhill from there. The entrees took forever to arrive, and when they did, the one I ordered was clearly NOT worth the wait. To be fair, the manager came over and apologized for the long wait and comped us a glass of wine...but still, the long, leisurely lunch went a bit TOO long. And don't sit by the window, as nice as the view is--the flies like to hang out there and buzz you to distraction!!!
