This is an expensive place, so be prepared. That being said, I was shocked at the unprofessional and rude attitude of our server/waitress. No specials were mentioned, nothing recommended, no welcome to our group, brusque attitude. No sommelier in sight, but she had already swept my wine glass and silverware away with such noise and ignorance, I would have feared "kitchen revenge" if I had ordered anything. Seriously, she was absolutely rude and horrible from the get-go.
I was with a group of eight. Had I been with just one other person, I would have walked out. The steaks might be great, but the lighting was so bad we could not read the menu much less see our entrees. We asked for another light for our table and were finally handed ONE flashlight to pass around. NO ONE could see the menu. Clearly, they weren't happy about the inconvenience.
Service with gentle guidance and warmth makes or breaks a fine meal, especially if the diners are first time visitors. Our very innocent request for bread with our drinks was answered with a harsh "you'll get your bread when you order" (as if we were going to take the one puny slice doled out to each of us and flee the place). I guess we were tourists to her and not worth the effort.
The food was good, although the portions were somewhat small. We assume the steaks were done as ordered, as it was too,dark to seem them...but they were good and tender. Two people chose to split a steak, which I read that other "regulars" do with no issue. Our server was obviously perturbed.
One couple who spent the most didn't even tip, but part of the confusion was their inability to split the check (even when asked in advance).
If you are someone important that they know, I am sure it's a totally difference experience.
For the rest of us, the indifferent, unprofessional, and uninspired service made it less than it should have been.
Expect to pay $100. Per person. I don't mind that but I want to be treated with some respect.
Not worth the splurge.
