My husband and I came to Foxwoods for our anniversary recently and we stopped in Cedars for dinner. We chose to eat in the bar around 6 pm. We were told by the hostess that it was open seating, so in we went and found a table and waited for our server. And waited. And waited...
Finally, after about 10 minutes of no server in sight, although a few passed us by, I went up to the bar to order our drinks. The bartender saw that I had gotten up from a table, so he went to get us a server. So we waited a little more... Not a good beginning!!
Finally, our server showed up and she wasn't the most pleasant person, but she got our drink order and told us we'd have our bread/butter soon. Well, the drinks came and still no bread/butter. No big deal, but service so far is not good!! I ordered a $12 key lime martini, which was very good, although graham crackers around the rim would have been better than just sugar! But I was given the shaker and I probably got 2.5 drinks out of it!
I always order the french onion soup. Just a cup. It is the best french onion soup! My husband ordered a cup of lobster bisque which comes with a side of sherry. Also good. Our dinners came out and I had ordered the special. A sirloin with mashed potato and asparagus for $42. Was it worth it? No. The sirloin had really no flavor. The burgundy sauce over it was too sweet. The mashed potatos weren't that great. I ate half my dinner because the steak was big (10 oz). My husband had the filet with a baked potato. His dinner was good though. My dinner just wasn't that 'great'. Normally I am happy with my meals here. No coffee or dessert... we were full.
So to sum it up, the service started out horrible but got better. Good drinks, great soup, average dinners... nothing to rave about. Will we go back? Of course. We always go to the bar at Cedars for the soups. I would tell people to go there for the french onion soup before I told them to go there for a steak! Servers should be a little more 'happy' though. It makes it a little uncomfortable when the server is not pleasant.
