I am someone that likes the whole experience. Atmosphere, decor, food, service. Even though this restaurant had atmosphere, decor and food going for it, the service ruined it for me. I should mention that the server was very nice and accommodating, just not very knowledge and....s l o w. I blame management, not the server. Also, the server was not very subtle (or polished) about trying to get us to buy drinks and appetizers.
Arrived Saturday night around 7pm and the first thing I noticed was all the empty tables....which is a rare occurrence in the Oak Brook area. Two in our party had Flounder, my wife had the trout, I had the Mahi Mahi. The food was good, although I felt that the Mahi Mahi was a very small portion compared to everyone else's meal (and what I have been served at other restaurants). Dessert was excellent (sorbet and vanilla bean ice cream). It was the decaf latte and decal cappuccino where things really fell apart. We ordered the desserts and coffees at the same time. The desserts came right out.....the coffees took forever. The cappuccino came out after close to 10 minutes and the latte separately five minutes after that. Not worth the wait, latte was lukewarm and the frothing of the milk had mostly dissipated. Bad way to end the meal.
Really a shame. Very nice place, but......there's a reason it was half empty on Saturday night.
The AARP discount was much appreciated. .
