I made a reservation online to ensure seating. The ambience at this restaurant is very impressive. However, the location is not the best. The place - at Maryland Live is congested as it wasn't meant for a 'better' restaurant.
We were seated in quick time, however I was not impressed with the seating. I figure if I'm going to pay big bucks, I don't want a seat by the entrance to the toilet or kitchen - which is what I got. I wasn't happy with that at all.
If I wasn't so hungry, I would have opted for another place!
There needs to be a divider of some sort between the seats near the toilet and kitchen entrances or else take those seats out! That was major tacky!
The waiter was great, polite and attentive - so a plus there!
I ordered steak (well done). It had to be sent back twice before it could be near well done. Sorry not everyone likes bleeding meat! I'm not sure if they've got a method to determine whether a steak is well done or not - but maybe they should test a few steaks to determine how long it would take to get it well done on the first try! It is not rocket science and it is a very expensive meal!
I did not make a fuss -but a mental note to myself - 'Never again!' I could only eat a small piece of it, as I was filled with wine and gas! Management however decided to eliminate the cost of the steak from the bill - a decent gesture on their part.
NOTE TO PRIME RIB - get your act together and also remove that last row of seats or automatically charge less for the less than desirable seating!
