Worst Dining Experience I've had in a while...Service was a joke...Food was just not good
I've been driving by this restaurant for years; it looks beautiful from the outside so finally I decided to give it a try. You have no idea how much I regret that decision. Let me be clear?THE SERVICE AT THIS RESTAURANT IS HORRIBLE. Here?s just a few examples of the trouble we ran into that night: 1) From the time we were seated, our waiter did not appear for 30 minutes, and when he did, he seemed disinterested, and not in the least bit apologetic when we informed him of the long wait. 2) Our first appetizer arrived 56 minutes after we first sat down?almost one hour sitting without any food at all. 3) We were seated at the table closest to the door, and the hostess of the restaurant was oblivious to our discomfort and frustration, even though she sat there and did nothing but look in our general direction as we waited patiently for service. And it wasn?t because she was busy, in fact the phone was ringing so incessantly and annoyingly that another patron had to complain about it. 4) The server filled my $12 glass of Pinot ? of the way at most (she emptied the bottle, and I assumed she was going to return with another bottle?She never did.) I could continue a play by play for the entire evening, and it would probably have some comedic value for the reader, but suffice it to say the service was unbelievably slow and unfriendly. The food was mediocre at best. The Venetian spring rolls appetizer was unremarkable, the salmon entree was bland and severely overcooked (I would have sent it back if we didn?t want to just get out of there by then), and the lobster dish was just plain bad. I eat Italian dinners out in the city all the time, and this was definitely the worst one I?ve had in a long time. I would not eat another meal there if it were free.
