I was invited to dinner under the pretense of "you have to try this place... They are on their way to a Michelin star..."
I will say the presentations are good and the food had potential. But the combinations on the plate just didn't make perfect sense. Bacon wrapped halibut sounds interesting but it doesn't go. My appetizer was cold- was meant to be served hot.
Was not drinking wine but rather spirits. Waiter filled my wine glass. Gave it to a friend who was drinking wine and the waiter brought a wine glass again and filled it. Were they trying to fleece us? Asked two different waiters for a refill of my drink. Thirty minutes later got it. Poor service indeed.
Worst part for us was that we had a party of 8. We saw the menu before sitting and were intrigued. But a party of 5 or more and you are given a limited menu much smaller. So I watched the tables of 2 and 4 next to me getting whatever they wanted and I had a choice of 5 dishes, none which particularly appealed to me.
Was told by waitress and manager too bad. Insult to injury- about 1/4th of the tables were empty.
Wouldn't recommend for a large party. Cannot recommend for a small party because I couldn't see the regular menu or eat what I wanted to eat.
Train the staff better. Lighten up on the rules and maybe you can seek the star you covet. Otherwise be relegated to just another shooting star- in the sky for a second then gone again to be replaced by yet another chef seeking an audience.
