I love great food. My friend told me about Commis a while ago and I was intrigued. We decided to take a friend, who is a gourmet chef for her birthday, since we knew how much she loves good food. I was excited to finally try it out. I let them know we were celebrating a special birthday.
The hostess was charming when we came in. The food was great - like everyone else described: innovative, creative and fantastic. The lamb dish was my favorite and perfectly executed.
The service was like the stark design. Don't get me wrong. They were professional and orchestrated their moves. But we found it lifeless and pretentious. I am not sure what experience they wanted to provide but it was as though they were doing us a favor by allowing us to eat their great food. It was stiff and as my friend said "it matched the stark walls." For me, part of going out is the experience and not just the food.
It would have been okay. We were having a great time celebrating when we were told we needed to leave since they have a party of 6. They had another table for us but never took us there. Totally ruined the evening.
