My family and I have frequented this restaurant on many occasions and I used to also recommend this restaurant to my colleagues at the University of Utah as an elegant place to bring conference guests. Although we had begun to notice that the quality of the place was dipping, the ambiance always compensated.
Our recent experience began with a rude, condescending, haughty waiter, Taylor, that actually turned out to be the manager. We asked a simple question and received a convoluted answer and when we asked for clarification, Taylor proceeded to treat us as if we were kindergarten students that had messed up his sand box. We were on the verge of leaving after our appetizers were churning in our stomachs, when we decided to try to change to another waitperson. As a punishment for not listening to instructor Taylor, we were left without any service for half an hour. Finally, Lindsay was gracious enough to accommodate our needs, despite the fact that she had practically the entire restaurant to serve with the exception of two tables.
The Coq au Vin was dry, bony and had no sauce. It wasn't even worth taking leftovers home.
We don't mind spending over $100 for a relaxing atmosphere and good food, but this experience was exactly the opposite.
I live abroad and my parents live in the Avenues in Salt Lake and we will never recommend this establishment to anyone. We were severely disappointed.
