My boyfriend treated me to a romantic dinner. I live really close to this place and every time we go over the bridge on the way home I mention it looks cool, so we went here. It is pretty expensive. Drinks and food = $100. Normal...But I see all these reviews about the manager coming over and the wait-staff being so good. I think it is a bunch of hoopla! Our waiter sucked! He paid attention only to families and the customers that the manager was visiting. Which one old couple got a visit from the manager, and he sat and talked, but we went entirely unnoticed by both the management and the waiter. (I had to drink my boyfriend's water because the waiter was not attentive enough to bring me any). The bar was the best part, it's upstairs. The bartender was nice and personable. If I would have known that the service would be so crappy downstairs, I would have requested to dine in the bar area. It's a nice place, but it's a bit overrated and all of the people saying they get special visits from the management are either lying, or friends of the management. Maybe it is just the simple fact that my boyfriend and I don't have kids, which, HELLO!!!!! If we are paying over $20 a plate for food LEAVE YOUR KIDS AT HOME!!!!!! NO one wants to deal with the annoyance of children when they are attempting to have a nice, expensive dinner. Also, drink up! The food takes FOREVER TO REACH YOU! AND MY DUCK WASN'T COOKED ALL THE WAY THROUGH! It wasn't even busy! So come'on folks, what's the deal? Kids? Slow and bad service? Maybe if the duck was over cooked it would be ok to make me wait forever for it! For the price, children should be like smoking, BANNED!
Pros: Cool upstairs bar with a view and fireplace
Cons: Lame downstairs area, bad wait staff, too many annoying kids!!!! Even with a reservation we had to wait!
