The restaurant was borderline dark so it was just as well the menu was printed in a font size that suited the vision impaired. The noise level was also too high, which made conversation difficult.
Our waitress must have been new as when I asked how the Wedge Salad was served, she said it was just a quarter head iceberg served on a romaine leaf... nothing else. I asked about dressing and she said no. Sounded strange, but I took her word. A neighboring table then ordered it and there it was with it's blue cheese dressing.
This place is no frills; you order meat, starch, and veg, and at a VERY high price too. I personally prefer restaurants where chefs can show off their creative skills. Our crab cake appetizer with the Cajun Lobster Sauce was excellent, though very small, but the 8oz Filet that my husband and I both ordered looked unappealing on arrival; a hunk of beat up looking meat. I would have preferred to have some sauce options to accompany it too. The steak was good quality though, very smooth, and cooked perfectly. I'd expect that from a steakhouse though, especially at $32.95 just for the 8oz filet. Add $9.95 for a side of asparagus with some sliced almonds thrown over for good measure, and another $8.95 for the Potatoes Au Gratin, and you have yourselves a very expensive, plain meal. My husband cooks a mean steak and we could have easily done this ourselves at home and saved the $235 bill for two people, and that was without the tip!!
We ordered a couple of glasses of Veuve Cliquot champagne at $19 per glass (!), and were disappointed to find that it wasn't adequately chilled, which was disgusting at this price. Our bottle of Seghesio Zinfandel was nothing special, but they stung us around $62 for the bottle.
To finish, we had a huge chunk of lemon cake, which was decent, but the coffee was absolutely ABOMINABLE; very weak and with no flavor at all. We complained to our server that it wasn't Starbucks and she agreed with a smile, without offering to make a fresh pot. I declined the refill.
Needless to say, we won't be coming back.
