Pretentious waiter makes for a horrible evening!
I got a gift certificate to go here for my birthday through work. Unfortunately I have to say my experience was not a good one. First thing that happened when we sat down, the waiter said: ""You only want water right"", grabbing our wine glasses away from us. Which I thought was very pretentious! We were dressed very appropriate and were not slobs in any way. I surely did not appreciate the rude comment either.
There was absolutely NO music there at all. It made me feel very uncomfortable while waiting on my dinner. Also when we were waiting at our table this overwhelming smell of MOLD kept lingering in the air!!!
I felt the food was WAY overpriced for the quality. I had ordered a seafood platter which was excellent and very tasty, but left me feeling hungry when I left. My boyfriend had ordered the veil which was a shockingly huge portion (filled the plate) but it tasted like cardboard.
When we ordered our two dished, priced well over $30 each, our waiter asked us: ""would you like soup or salad with that"", we both agreed to the house salad. When we got the bill at the end of the night we were charged almost $20 extra for the two salads we supposedly ordered. Granted the salad was really good, but come on, $10 for a house salad that didn't even fill a small salad plate? Also I felt the waiter tricked us into ordering the salads, when he made it sound like it came with our order...
Needless to say we didn't order desert. We ended up going to The Cheesecake Factory, which was much more personal, and professional there, and the waiter made my night!
Overall, I HATED the service there. My boyfriend and I will NOT go back there, AND I am telling everyone at my work place to beware when they use their certificates!
