I wish we had consulted the Citysearch reviews of this establishment prior to making reservations. I've just now read them and felt compelled to join Citysearch so that I may share our experience. Herewith, my first review. Upon being seated, the maitre'd inquired as to what tour bus (?) we had arrived on. Well. golly, heck, folks we live on LI. Does that qualify? That should have signalled our departure, but, alas, we decided to stay. We selected from the fixed price menu, which may or may not offer the same quality as the regular menu. My husband ordered the queen's cut prime rib - medium rare. It arrived medium rare. Although flavorful, it, unfortunately, had the consistency of shoe leather. He also ordered a side of rice pilaf, which tastewise, was unmemorable, save for the fact that it was presented barely warm. The chef should have taken his cue from rice-a-roni. Now, on to my lobster ravioli in pink sauce. Again, the pasta was lukewarm. The pink sauce overwhelmed the pasta, which left me wondering if, indeed, I had ordered lobster ravioli. Sadly, there is a particular Italian brand of ravioli (found only in your grocer's freezer) which was more flavorful and much less expensive. My mixed vegetables, however, were presented nicely as a little bouquet with a nice crunch. Our son ordered an appetizer only - a shrimp and avocado affair - again, nothing memorable. My husband selected chocolate ice cream for dessert which, we all agreed, was the best item served - frozen and chock full of chocolate pieces.. The cream caramel (flan) accompanying my meal tasted more like a heavy egg custard. Traditional flan is usually served in a small, shallow bowl. This was presented as a wedge of pie. What better way to acccommodate the ""tourists"" than to produce it en mass. \r
Our family has been fortunate in experiencing some wonderful and memorable dining experiences across the US - sadly this is not one of them.
