In response to - LETTUCE ENTERTAIN YOU ENTS INC 11/17/2011

I completely agree with you. I have been doing research on Lettuce for several months and the quality of their food is sub par at best. Even at places that are supposed to be known for their excellence in cuisine such as Joe's Stone Crab often fall short. Most dishes are over seasoned to better the taste. Even if the quality of the food is good it is hard to find places that are able to prepare it correctly consistently. Unless you have monkeys on a line with portion bags and an instruction booklet like at Lettuce's pride and joy, Wildfire. I have had the displeasure of working with some Lettuce 'higher-ups.' Allow me to vent about a particular human being, I think, named Mark Tormay. He was the founder of Maggiano's and is one of the brightest restaurant business minds I have met, and also one of the most disgusting human beings I have ever laid eyes on. I cannot fathom how you can create a lucrative restaurant business with such poor habits and manners. I have seen this man pick up forks in the middle of the dining room, scratch his back, then replace the fork on the table. He also frequently itches his manhood in front of staff members and potential clients during meetings. One time, he and I were in the middle of a conversation and he thought it was appropriate to use a toothpick as an ear swab. Have you vomited yet? Aside from Mark Tormay's atrocious behavior, another thing you are bound to encounter is that every guest who has a Lettuce card is ""SOOO CLOSE"" with Rich Melman! What do you want, an additional discount on your portion bagged cat litter dinner? Okay, so maybe thatsa bit harsh. I know a lot of very successful chefs who I am very proud of and take pride in themselves working for more obscure Lettuce restaurants. However, that is precisely the point, you would NEVER know they were owned by Lettuce. I have heard praisal and horror stories from the wait staff who work for Lettuce in several different concepts. A majority of them say that they regardless of the mediocre health benefits they receive, the only reason they stick around is because of the people who they have grown to know an love, in addition to the money they make. Unfortunately, apparently this makes up for working for a corporate demon who destroys quality restaurants and transforms them into a Lettuce money machine. I can't say I don't dine at Lettuce restaurants ever, because they are oftenly so conveniently placed that it is my only option. That, and, the food isn't really that terrible. I just detest the fact that there is little thought and preperation that goes into it. Make your own decisions about where you choose to dine. Just be sure you know who and where it's coming from. more

I DO NOT RECOMMEND Lettuce Entertain You restaurants 9/14/2006

I've eaten at a number of Lettuce Entertain You restaurants, and at times didn't even know they were Lettuce Entertain You-owned or I would NOT have eaten there. I really think this company is way overrated, many times a rip-off price-wise. The wait staffs are overly familiar, obnoxious and ""in your face"" with patrons, and they rush you out of there in order to have a high turn over in their tables. Examples: Maggiano's is a really bad Italian restaurant, very unauthentic Italian cuisine poorly prepared. Atmosphere is noisy and service is bad, slow. Worst of all, it's overpriced. Other Lettuce Entertain you places: Shaw's Crab House in Schaumburg: EXTREMELY overpriced, average (at best) food, noisy, and very, very unrelaxing atmosphere. Another example: Tru... all hype and VERY OVERPRICED. Another example: L. Wood on Lincoln Ave., really bad food, overpriced, noisy atmosphere and rude wait staff. I won't go on and on here, I think you get the picture. There are a lot of genuinely good, authentic, pleasant places to eat in around Chicago, with polite, respectful staffs and good value for your buck. Lettuce Entertain You restaurants are NOT among these. Pros: spometimes the ambience is OK Cons: just about everything... read my review more
