Visited this restaurant many times both with my husband and friends. This night was a special occasion,a 60th birthday celebration. A friend made the reservation and informed the restaurant of the occasion. It was a very hot steamy night and the restaurant was busy. The air conditioning was barely working in the room that we were seated. The hostess moved us to another room in the back. Still the room was very warm and at times very uncomfortable. We had a party of seven .After placing our orders ,we opened gifts . We were soon advised that our party "must be mindful of the other guest in the close quarters of the room". I would think that would be the restaurants problem, not ours! We had to tell the guest of honor and the fellow diners that the laughing and talking that is usually found at a very special celebration had to be contained. Well may a say that this request not only was inappropriate, considering that the restaurant knew of the birthday celebration, but also knew that we were a large party. Really, what would you want your patrons to do? Not enjoy a celebration? Isn't this a service profession and an established restaurant that should know how to handle larger parties? Quickly the atmosphere changed and we felt we had to accommodate the restaurant rather then the other way around. Food was adequate. Service mediocre.Pricing still high considering the apps of fig and prosciutto , 3 slices of fig, NJ tomato app with the same skimpy presentation. I heard of this type of treatment of larger parties here, but my friend who made the reservation thought we give it another try. VERY DISAPPOINTING.
