There was quite a buzz around town about this restaurant, so we decided to try it out. Excepting lighting and decor, which were attractive,it fell short in every possible way.
Our party of four ordered four entrees and two appetizers. Some were bland, some overspiced to the point of inedibility. All were oversalted. None showed any of the imagination you would expect from a place that is expensive by Saratoga standards. As if by compensation, the portions were absurdly large.
The service ranged from overly solicitous to bone-headed. Example of the latter: when we consulted the wine list and ordered a second (different) bottle of wine, the waiter poured the whole bottle into our four glasses and walked away with the bottle! No matter that one of us only wanted a splash. (The wine list, by the way, is pedestrian to the point of comedy. Nothing you couldn't buy at your corner liquor store, but of course at three times the price).
But the worst aspect of 28 Tables only became clear when, 2/3 of the way through our meal, the club downstairs (which shares the same management) cranked up the music. Not only did we have trouble hearing, but our table and chairs literally began to shake. At that point we made for the exit as fast as possible.
