We went to Escarpment following local recommendations and other reviews. Initially we weren't disappointed - a intimate atmosphere but not too tight and an inventive menu adding twists to many French classics. The waiting staff were attentive and kind.
The last thing I expected was to be barked at by the chef! If the bathroom is occupied beware waiting just outside the door - which is at the entrance to the kitchen. The chef instructed me in a rude manner "don't stand there, go wait in the restaruant" and agressively pointed out the direction to me. Even with the pressures of a full house to cook for, I would consider it unprofessional to shout instructions at anyone, particularly a guest. Even with Gordon Ramsay's ego I would be put out, but at least then we would have had the quality of food to match.
If you do decide to go it might be worth phoning ahead to check on the chef's mood first.
