I took my niece there to celebrate her birthday. She had heard so many good things and that was her request. I love downstairs with the exposed brick and the wine cellar or i did. First of all... there were small mayonnaise jars on the tables. I was told it was the new contemporary look. No table cloth and stems as I had been accustomed to there. I was served my $34-37 entree on a cutting board. I keep hearing the average price is $30 but I have never been there and spent under $125 for two people. A couple, at about $60 each, is already at $120.When I spend this kind of money there is no way I want to drink from a small mayo jar. I can do that at home if I want. If I drink out of a glass at home, I can at least get a water glass when dining out. I was also upset because the meal came without our having ever received the appetizers we ordered. To ad injury to insult, I had purchased a $150 Gift Card. In the event I could not go, I wanted her to be able to go with a friend. We had dinner but since we never got the appetizers I had almost $30 left. Initially they took it and said the balance would go to tips. This I did not stand for. I decide what I am tipping. Service was not the greatest. I ordered a bottle of wine but had to fill our glasses myself. I was however, going to leave a 15% tip. It would still be under $20. I did in the end get a certificate for the balance and will use it up and never go there again after going at least 2-3 times a year. I have no idea what has happened there but if it was due to a wedding going on at the same time, then they should close to the public if they are having a private affair. I don't advise it if your standards are above the average.
By the way, I was told there would be 2 cup cakes with candles for the birthday. There was one piece of cake for her. I had to sit and watch her eat it. The cake was really delicious and better than a cup cake but the other person at the table should have been able to enjoy it with her.
The coffee was cold and had to be returned. The waiter did the best with what he had to work with.
My jars at home are better.
