This is the first review I feel the merchant made me feel "I" should be sooo lucky to eat there!! Needless to say, his review is way over-due! Partly because I didn't want to waste more of my time giving this place any more attention. The only reason why I am giving this restaurant a 2 stars is because one out of my three visits was just merely decent (the food was just okay-bit pricey too). The last two visit made me feel I was masochistic because service just continued to get worse. On my last visit to the Derby, we had called in advance to make a reservation for a party of four and was promised a booth seat. Upon arrival we were informed that they were over-booked but had room available in their lounge area. Now their lounge area is dark and creepy. We approached the manager and stated the lounge area was unacceptable and with a smirk on his face said "This is what we have. Take it or leave it." So we left. It is such a shame because the Derby itself has so much charm and the place gives you an Old-Hollywood feeling but the service and food is just atrocious. I would NOT recommend this restaurant at least not until they change management.
I wish I could give a better review on the food but it was so long ago I just don't remember but obviously was not memorable.
