Food was just ok but don't expect to get good cocktails. We ordered three Martini's, a Saphire Gin and two Cosmos. The Saphire Gin Martini literally looked like a shot of gin in the glass barely filling it half way and the two cosmos were overly sweet and diluted with cranberry juice.
I emailed the next day and this was the response I received back:
"Dear Sir, I apologize that you did not care for our Martini’s. We do use a nine ounce, oversized glasses for all our martinis. As per our corporate recipes, we pour an one and a half ounce shot for all of our martini drinks. The Cosmos use the same, one and a half ounces of Vodka, plus three quarters of an ounce of triple sec, and topped off with cranberry juice. These are standard, and widely used recipes and alcohol amounts."
So just going by their recipe they use a total combined of 2 and 1/4 ounces of vodka/triple sec to 6 and 3/4 of cranberry. Anyone that drinks a Cosmo knows that the cranberry is for the color only and not the primary ingredient.
And they also confirmed that the Saphire Martini only contained a shot of gin. Silly when you consider that we paid $9 for it. Considering what Niko's is charging they should make the drinks right and not be arrogant about it. These are not "standard and widely used recipes and alcohol amounts" as they stated in their response back to me... unless of course you are just trying to rip your customers off!!
