This was undoubtedly THE worst meal that I have had in years. The lobster in the lobster thermidor was seriously SPOILED. The chef should have known this from the smell alone. I was foolish enough to ignore what I smelled and take a bite. I returned it after the first bite, and the waiter took it back to the kitchen and returned with sincere apologies from the chef, offering me something else. The next dish was the salad with hearts of palm that were not canned, but fresh. This would ordinarly be a great thing ... IF they were actually cooked enough. They were so tough as to be impossible to chew. Like tree bark. The shrimp had almost no flavor at all, which considering what the lobster tasted like may have been a blessing, I suppose. Now to add insult to injury, they charged $54 for a the special request dish for our child, which was some fish sticks. That's MORE than the price of the lobster thermidor, and when I pointed that out, the waiter realized this did seem a bit much, so he took $10 off. That's still $44 for fish sticks - and not even good tasting ones! I tried a bite, and it tasted oily and old. The place was virtually empty, which should have been our first clue, but considering the reputation of this once-great place, we ignored that sign. The waiters were excellent. I will say that. Old world charm, and grace. But I go to a restaurant for enjoyable food. The prices were absurdly high for a terrible meal.
Pros: Good service.
Cons: High prices and terrible food.
