I'm not much on the ""restaurant scene"", so I spent a few hours looking at reviews on this site. It was my son's 24th birthday, and my wife and I wanted to take him and his fiancee and our daughter out for a nice meal. I intended to spend $150 or so, which in my book is quite a bit to spend for five meals. My son chose Mafioza's, but when we got there we realized it wasn't open (Monday). Since we drove quite a way, and were hungry, we decided to go to The Mirror. I remembered seeing a high rating for this restaurant on this site, so I figured that it was closer to what I was looking for in a restaurant, anyway, for the evening. I knew it was a limited menu, and a little pricey, but figured we'd find something we liked. I just don't understand the ""chef"" restaurants that are pricey and focus on the ""presentation"" of the meal. I don't mind spending a lot on a meal when it's a special occasion, and I don't mind spending $20+ on an entree, but it should include a salad, shouldn't it? How about bread? No, these are all things that are extra!!! OK, well that just tells me how great the entree is going to be. It's going to be HUGE, right? Great, because I'm starved by now. After all, I knew I was going to a nice restauant all day, so I haven't eaten much. Well, if it's true that America's restaurants are contributing to the obesity of Americans, it isn't because of restaurants like this one. I don't know why they use such big plates, because they don't even use over half of them. Oh, yeah, the ""presentation"" was nice, and the check was substantial ($150 like I'd figured earlier), but we all considered grabbing a hamburger on the way home, because there just wasn't much there. We aren't big people (my daughter is 100 lbs. soaking wet) and $150 can't fill us up??? Why can't restaurants like this have style AND substance? I call this ""unbelievable"" because I can't believe people actually come to this restaurant more than once. Once was too much for me.
Pros: decent food
Cons: tiny portions, pricey
