I love eating at fancy restaurants and am more than willing to compensate when the experience has been wonderful, but I was truly dissapointed with Cuvee. I went there for my birthday first of all, and the staff was aware of this, unfortunately it is the day after Christmas but the restaurant was open and not full at all. They started us out with a complimentary amuse bouche which was o.k. and on par with what it should be, but it lacked flavor. Our waiter was completely absent and quite rude, he took our order and then we barely saw him again, we had to pour our own wine and ask for things such as pepper and salt. In fact we had to ask the waiter serving the table next to us for things because our waiter was completely absent. I had a main dish of fish with black truffles and I was completely dissapointed and I love love love truffles. The chef however used them almost like a vegetable in the dish completely overpowering the flavor of the fish or anything else on the plate for that matter. Truffles should be a garnish! Then out of nowhere before our plates were even cleared our waiter comes out with a complimentary desert, nice and all, but when I asked to see the wine list again and a desert menu for my boyfriend, again we waited for twenty minutes and then we had had it and we asked for the check. I wanted to leave this guy nothing and when I saw the price of the bill I should have, almost three hundred dollars for two people and we didn't even get to really indulge. I am sorry, but this place is simply not worth it, at least at Restaurant August, John Besh himself comes out and asks you if you like everything and he knows that Truffles are a garnish, for the money I would go there any day over Cuvee.
Pros: some good flavors
Cons: price, service, and flavor
