Having dined at Per Se, Le Bernardin, Daniel, and Jean Georges, my dining companions and I had high expectations for Adour. We were expecting an etheral meal. Much to our disappointment, however, Adour utterly failed to meet our expectations this past Saturday night. We sat in one of the ""secluded"" side rooms off of the main dining room, which was awful. Seated in the room with us was another party of four in that was perhaps the most obnoxious family in Manhattan, and we were subjected to their rudeness for 2+ hours. If you decide to eat at Adour, be sure to request to sit in the main dining room. The service was dreadful. The wait staff appeared frazzled, confused, and yet was standoffish. The waiter presented 2 menus to another guest and me while our two other guests were in the bathroom. Despite having four guests we had three wine glasses on the table for the longest time. The sommelier never appeared to discuss the wine list and instead we took recommendations from the gentlemen who ultimately cleared our table. Likewise, the food was below average. The lobster, roasted fennel and grapefruit appetizer was above average but probably not worth $26. My entree, the pork tenderloin, was horrible. Three small pieces of undercooked pork together with other bland items was not good. The other guests had the beef tenderloin and braised short ribs, which were fatty and luke warm. Our desserts were good. The creme brulee was delicious and the dark chocoloate sorbet was extremely rich. The pastry chef did his or her best to salvage an memorably poor meal. By that time, however, the damage had been done. The space, in the St. Regis, is beautiful, although it is bizarre that they couldn't build bathrooms inside the restaurant; instead, guests must walk through the hotel and down two flights of stairs to the restrooms. Simply put, neither my dining companions nor I liked Adour. Don't waste your time or money.
