Where to start: We arrived at the restaurant only to be greated by a very tall young lady who gave us the impression that we were bothering her. She showed us to our table without any menus or at least a brief conversation on who would be waiting on us. After several minutes, we received our menus. While reviewing the Coral Gables Restaurant Week Menu and the regular menu, the Hostess continued to parade herself from one end of the restaurant to the other with shoes that sounded like clydesdale horses walking through the restaurant. I ordered off the restaurant week menu, while my husband ordered off the regular menu. We ordered some drinks and waiting for our appetizers. Awesome appetizers. Our meal arrived at the appropriate time as they did not rush us which was such a nice treat. Since I had ordered from the set menu, I got my Tiramisu while my husband had to ask our waiting to please bring him the dessert menu. Keep in mind that this whole time the Hostess and her shoes continued to trot to and from the back of the restaurant. I came very close to tackling her to the ground and removing her shoes. It was very distracting to hear the noise of her shoes. After a brief time, my husband got his dessert, who was served by a lovely young lady who smiled and made some pleasant conversation, unlike our waiter and the hostess. We did notice that there where some local politicians who were getting the royal treatment. I guess the hostess and waiter decided to save their smiles for the important politicians. Will we go back? Absolutely not. The meal very tasty but not inexpensive. For the price paid, a smile and some pleasantries would have been appropriate.
