San Antonio...the land of mediocrity. One would think that an overpriced,but well decorated establishment located in an affluent area would step things up a notch over the competition's. On a positive note, I must commend our server, as well as the hostess for their courtesy and professionalism. They are both very pleasant individuals...the ONLY reason we did not walk out.
My wife and I paid over eighty dollars for a twenty-eight dollar bottle of wine, one appetizer, two entrees, and two ""mini desserts."" I would not object to spending three times this if the items were of any quality. First, our pork dumplings were presented cold and undercooked. I was prepared to send them back, however our food arrived about two minutes later. Overlooking the poor timing , the mongolian beef was supposed to have the onions omitted. No big deal. I just spent the time to push them aside. My wife ordered a chicken dish (sorry, I do not remember the name). The server did a great job of recommending a plate that was mild. Although the term ""hot"" may refer to temperature or spice, I have never heard of the term ""mild"" to be confused with ""cold."" We decided to take the chicken entree to go and share the other plate. Upon completion of the beef, we both decided to each order a single-portioned dessert. This did hit the spot. Our server packaged the leftover entree to go, but forgot to bring an extra portion of rice that we requested.
In today's economy, many restaurants are begging for business. I am very surprised that a restaurant of this caliber could overlook so many important details, not to mention the little one's. Next time I will take my eighty dollars (almost 100 after gratuity) and spend it two or three times over somewhere else.
