We had dinner here 9/18 and were glad we had reservations - it was packed. We first checked in downstairs, and were told to go up. After waiting at the podium quite a while, the maitr d' arrives and tell us we must go to the bar and wait for our 8:15 reservation (we had made it for 8 pm - and it was about 7:50). We could see a 2-top in the window, so asked if we could sit there - "no, that one is taken". So we went to the bar and not only could we not sit down, you couldn't get too close to it because every single person sitting at the bar was eating dinner, and we thought it would be rude to hover over them. So we stood in the middle of the floor for 15 minutes - my husband ordered a martini, I just got water because we had just had drinks and appetizers before we came, plus I HATE when they make you cool your heels in the bar when you have a reservation - they are so obviously trying to squeeze another dime out of you. A little after 8 the same MD comes to seat us...at the very same 2-top that had been empty all along! Now, I understand that you don't want to slam a waiter with too many tables at once, but it just didn't make any sense to make us wait to seat us at the very table he told us was "taken".
Anyway, rant over - food was very good - I loved my NY Strip Steak, DH loved his Beef Wellington (the Thursday special), and we got the "no cream" creamed spinach and we like spinach but this was really just plain...which again made no sense since there was also plain "steamed spinach" on the menu, as well as regular creamed. We thought the "no cream" would be somewhere in between. But it was good. Two-top tables are MUCH too small for the amount of food they serve - we were constantly juggling plates, drinks, bread basket.
Luckily our waiter was nice and funny and made up for the jerk of a maitre d'.
