- Overly helpful waitress, to the point of annoyance (repeatedly interrupting conversations to ask if we'd like more water or other trivialities), but helpful nonetheless
- Good food - enjoyed it very much
- nice decor - looks like a posh place, IS a posh place
- pricy, but what would you expect given the above (think $ 120 per person, including mid-range wine)
- only real negative is that the volume of the music keeps creaping up over time, and by the time you're almost done with your main course (10pm-ish) you will literally have to shout to each other to have a conversation.
Don't misjudge: I am only 34, and I like clubs - I'm not some old dude that shouldn't go to places like these anymore. This is a restaurant though, and people have dinner together to have a good meal AND a good conversation. The waitresses have to ask orders three times because it's so loud - so it's not just me. Besides, this is the 4th time I have been there, so apparently I liked the atmosphere and food enough that I kept hoping that it was a one-off bad job from the DJ that night. By now, I can't justify that anymore, and going forward, I may need to reconsider the Buddha Bar as an option for dinner with people that I actually want to have a conversation with.
However, if it's your mother in law (mine is actually cool therefore not applicable to me) this is a must go ;-)
