We went here to try the restaurant before we had 12 people here for graduation night. I'm very glad we tried it before going with my entire family. The food was not great, atmosphere fine, the service was low grade.
The waitress was chewing gum the entire time, but other than this, she did a good job. I had the chicken alfredo, and hod to spit out two pieces of chicken because of the massive amounts of gristle left in it. This wasn't our chief complaint however. The initial issue was with the 5+ bones in each bite of the Canadian Walleye. When we asked the manager about this, she came over and with an incredulous attitude began to argue with us about how it was impossible. REALLY? Because the fish was just on our table, so who would know better? Maybe the people with the fish on their table! She then said she would speak to their "chef". Mr "chef" then comes out and explains that ALL freshwater fish have bones, and there is nothing he can do about it. Having cooked, eaten, and filleted fish before, I am capable of getting freshwater fish without massive amounts of bones in each bite. Why isn't their supplier? Perhaps because as a cost-saving measure, they have decided to go with the lowest bidder. He then walks away, leaving us in an empty dining room for about five minutes. The "manager" then comes back over and offers to take the fish off the bill, which has already been paid. After she graciously did this, we walked to the front and cancelled our reservation for the 11th.
Our issue isn't really even with the fish and bones. We weren't expecting a comped meal or dish, we merely wanted to let them know about an issue with the fish. Our issue is with the argumentative and unaccommodating attitude of the manager and the "chef". Both of us rarely complain at restaurants, but this was well deserved. Our waitress was fine, the atmosphere was fine, the service beyond this was terrible. We will not be back, and would advise against this grille without a serious attitude adjustment on the part of the management and "chef".
