This is a restaurant that I would like to see make many operational changes or cut their prices at least in half. The wait staff was embarrasingly amateurish and food was too stingy. We waited over a half hour after being seated to get our first drink while busboys and waiters with trays of dirty dishes clamored around our table. It was about like being at a Chilis or Applebees. The outrage was that we were paying ridiculously high London or NY prices. We came very close to walking out as we waited for that first drink but had nowhere else to go. Then we were told we had to place our entire order at the time our drinks order was taken (not just appetizers) or otherwise the kitchen wouldnt be able to execute in a timely way. We obliged, and had to wait another half hour for a second drink (which was so tiny I was incredulous) and then all the food came very quickly. It was not enough to eat unless you were on a starvation diet. Clearly the Chef is creative and clever. Why he/she would represent their talent at this restaurant is an enigma. The portions were so small that we talked during the meal about whether we had any cereal left at our ski house to eat before bed. We ended up stopping at Dominos on the way home having spent close to $400 for four of us. All in all, one of the most frustrating dining experiences I have ever had. I couldnt help but laugh on my way out the door as the maitre d asked how our evening was. This restaurant is trying to be NYC's China Grill or Indochine, but the service undermines that. My guess is that the owners think the crowd they cater to is not discerning.
