5 of us went to Joe Maggiano's for their Winterlicious dinner menu. The place was not that busy but we still had to wait a while for our waiter. First thing we were told was that one of the appetizers and one of the entrees were sold out. The sold out appetizer was actually what I wanted, but fine, I reluctantly picked another. 4 of us happened to pick the same appetizer (mussels), but a couple of us got a bowl with very little tomato sauce.
One and half hour after we first sat down our entrees finally came, and that's when the fun started. 4 of us ordered the "Zuppa Di Pesce, with lobster tail, white tiger shrimp, East coast scallops, clams and fresh fish in a tomato white wine broth", but what we got depended on the luck of the draw. Some of us got 3 scallops, some got 2, and we even saw half of a scallop. We were not told that the clams would be replaced by mussels, or we probably would not have picked the mussels as appetizer. I got 3 shells and one mussel. The only consistency is that none of us got lobster tail.
We asked to speak to the manager, who basically said that there was nothing he could do but to offer us $5 off for each person??? We refused that offer. He walked away saying that he'd see what he could do. That was the last time we saw him as we all stood up and left.
