Visit on 4/7/2012
The reason we visited MGG was because of the ravings of a work colleague. We went there expecting the price to be high, but I was hoping to enjoy some seafood. My wife ordered the BBQ baby back ribs and I ordered the seafood pasta. The waitress was very pleasant and the service was good, but it went downhill from there.
1. The pre-meal bread was rock hard.
2. We both chose a salad as part of our meal. My wife asked for French dressing, but the waitress later came back later to say that they didn't make French dressing anymore and suggested a fancy smanshy house dressing that tasted a bit funky. Not being too adventurous, I chose an Italian dressing and enjoyed the salad. Since dining by candle light, I didn't notice the salad until near the end. I noticed a couple pieces of "red" lettuce didn't look right. Upon closer examination, I found that they were brown and slimy bad lettuce. I was going to bring it to the waitress' attention, but before I could, an efficient "server" snatched away the plate.
3. In came the entrees. My wife's dinner came with candied yam which tasted like it came from a can, smothered with a goo of orange marmalade and mixed with pecan piece. Not impressive.
4. My seafood pasta was a big letdown. The sauce was bland. The lobster tail, the shrimps, the mussels and the clams all tasted rubbery, obviously overcooked or precooked. The only redeeming items are the scallops.
5. The chocolate desert that had to be ordered early, supposedly because it would take time to make, looked like flattened chocolate cupcake. I didn't bother to taste it, but the wife who loves chocolate didn't think it was worth the bother.
Later, on the way home, we both agreed that it was an overpriced, mediocre dinner.
Needless to say, we shall not return!
