the mussels were excellent. the frites? okay. the waitress? ugh ugh UGH. she was just plain MEAN. she literally walked up to our table, stood there with an index card in her hand, looked at us blankly, and said NOTHING. my friend finally said ""um...hello?"" then the waitress sigh heavily, and mumbled ""would you like to hear the specials or what?"" we said yes, and then she read off the specials in monotone. um, ok. we'd done nothing to deserve this--we simply sat down and wanted to order. that being said, the bus boys were fine, the mussels were great, the beer, as others have noted, was too expensive.
i won't be going back, and i'll tell all my friends not to go--you guys could have the best mussels in the whole world, but that waitress must be keeping a lot of customers away.
