Great steaks and service

This restaurant did not pass my number one criterion: Would I go back? No. The Turducken was pretty good for a $12-$13 dish, but it cost $20 and all three in our party who ordered agreed that they wouldn’t order it again. But there were service problems too and it’s not air conditioned. Or at least the A/C wasn’t working on Memorial Day weekend. We ordered a bottle of sparkling wine, which was brought to the table, opened and served warm. Even as a child, I knew that was wrong. Then the bottle was placed in a container with a small block of ice that had no chance of cooling it and I had to ask for more ice to cool it down. The same waiter then mistakenly wrote down an additional entre when taking our order. My wife was ordering an appetizer of Beef Tips for our young daughter as an entre and he brought both an entre and the appetizer portion for our 6-year-old… then charged us for both. We ended up paying for his mistake. Also, there were no napkins or silverware at the table when we were seated and it stayed like that until our dinners were served and we had to ask for napkins and utensils. Overall it was a very disappointing experience and I would not recommend Alpine to potential diners.
