Had dinner at this place last week during a vacation to CA. First issue, valet parking. The lot was empty when we drove in, the attendant just stood there and didn’t even stop us and offer to park the car. Just let us find our own parking spot. We still had to pay him before entering the restaurant and he asked us to take our keys with us. We walked in, a group of 5, and were met by the manager/owner (?) who just happened to be standing there when we opened the door. He didn’t even greet us or say a word, just looked us up and down, with a look that said “can these people afford to eat here?”. As another reviewer already mentioned, maybe he doesn’t like non-whites in his restaurant. We requested a table for five and he just turned and started walking, we assumed we were to follow, so we did. He put menus on the table and just left. A few minutes later a waiter appeared, not the friendliest person either, came took the order didn’t offer any suggestions or asked if we wanted to hear about the special for the day. He gave us an annoying look when we started asking questions about the food. After serving us he never returned until he came back to give us our check. The manager/owner did come by every now and then to circle our table, just watching us maybe to see that we didn’t eat and run? The only friendly person in the restaurant was an elderly gentleman who bothered to come by every now and then to offer us more water and ask if we needed anything else.
About the food – we were given a basket of bread which had exactly 5 pieces, had to request more. My son ordered a burger with fries, very skimpy on the fries. I think he got maybe 5 or 6 steak fries. Three of us ordered the surf and turf which was the special for the day, We were served the tiniest piece of steak and two small shrimp/two tiny scallops. All not very tasty. Only good thing about our meal was the baked potato and salad. Warm bread was delicious and we filled up on it. Portions are not great and food is not cheap, so do not go here if you are starving. Can’t say about the décor or cleanliness of the place as lighting was very dim.
We left, were not thanked for our service nor did we find the valet parking attendant waiting outside! So what did we pay for, park your own car? I would not go back mainly because of the rudeness of the manager/owner!!
