By far one of the worst dining experiences I?ve had in long time, especially considering the prices. The restaurant has a pretty interior: exposed brick, plush red velvet curtains; elegant without being stuffy. The staff was adequately friendly. But my primary objective when I dine out is the food, which was for the most part abysmally disappointing. The little cornbread muffins and peach biscuits before the meal were delicious, the best part of the meal. Nothing else compared. When our entrees were brought out, we had to ask the hostess for steak knives because our server did not bring them. My lamb chops with mashed potatoes and green beans were mediocre. I thought the lamb was a little tough and gamey, but I?m not a huge connoisseur of lamb chops, so I don?t feel comfortable comparing them to another restaurant. However, my partner ordered the Surf and Turf, and I do feel qualified to comment on the strip steak. It was ordered medium rare, but came out very rare. It was as if the steak had been taken straight out of the refrigerator and slapped on the hot grill for a few seconds, seared on the outside but cold and bluish-red inside. The biggest disappointment of all was dessert. At $10 a slice, I was expecting a lot from the Chocolate Decadence cake. I can?t think of any restaurant in Atlanta that charges $10 for a slice of cake (Ritz Carlton?). It was an average sized slice of moist dark chocolate cake with a thick covering of dark chocolate icing. Sounds great, but honestly it didn?t taste ANY better than a piece of chocolate cake from Publix. No better. When I spoke to a friend the next day and told him we had eaten at the Pecan, he replied that he had eaten there and ordered the Pecan Chicken, and it tasted like it had been bought from Sam?s Club. If the cost of the meal had been something like $40, I wouldn?t have felt so bad. But as it was over twice that much (2 non-alcoholic drinks, 2 entrees, 1 dessert), I feel like I?ve been grossly ripped off.
Pros: Cornbread and Biscuits
Cons: the rest of the food
