When I moved to the area in 2008 I made it my business to get to all the best rated restaurants. Cafe Panache was at the top of the list, and I had many fabulousness eating experiences there. Until Restaurant Week in 2012. Shunted into a back room with another couple who I was introducing to the restaurant for the first time. I had raved about the food, service, and ambiance, but this time nothing was the same. The service was abominable, the food was adequate but no better than "good," and the entire experience was dismal (an opinion shared by the other couples seated with us in "Siberia.") If a restaurant is going to participate in Restaurant Week, or offer other incentives for diners to come in, it is NOT ok to treat them differently than any other patron paying "full price." I will never go back, and my friends have not returned either.
