We have been going to Trader's for over a decade with often impeccable food and service. Tonight, we were truly disappointed on several levels. A $32 sea bass entrée was burnt, dry and tasteless. It was bewildering given how the quality has been in the past. We feel the quality has been deteriorating over time, and it is not like the cuisine is cheap here.
The thing that disturbed me the most, however, was the valet parking forced upon us. This is a new thing at Trader's. Not given a choice, we found the valet parking absolutely ludicrous when you see how navigable and walkable the parking lot is. We are not stingy tippers, but it rankled to pay a valet what we would normally pay...when he literally walked a car's length to retrieve our car. I don't like being taken for a fool, and I certainly was tonight.
I will be thinking twice before I return. I was really upset by the whole experience. My money matters, and I wasted it tonight.
