A very warm and seemingly earnest greeting by our server was followed by his having several mini-bouts of amnesia- he forgot about us and our orders. We shouldn't have to ask him to replenish the bread four times. It seemed to our table of four that his other tables had more focused service, and it should be noted that his co-servers were also pleasant, but only borderline attentive. For a $360+ tab, we thought the service was uneven and inattentive.
As to the food, our consensus was that it was too salty and too peppery, with an aftertaste of both. The side dishes were large and tasty. The steaks were just too seasoned for our taste, and as a result we had lots(almost all) left over, but our server didn't seem to notice. We were reticent to send back 3 of the 4 entrees, especially as we had been there for an hour or more when the entrees arrived. All in all, we had plenty of time to talk and catch up while waiting for the food to be served. Unfortunately, the timing and forgetfulness of the service made for an expensive foray into a straightforward family dinner for four turning into a bad experience.
