My partner and I decided to try this place due to the great reviews. I'm baffled as to how anyone gave this more than 1 or 2 stars. I would give this 0 stars if I could.
Cocktails: mine was $25, hers was $20. Why?...They were just ok, but overly sweet. Mine was supposed to have mint and numerous other things in it, but it just tasted like a whiskey sour. Way overpriced.
The steak and frites: more like frites with a 4 oz steak.. for $45. The steak was presliced.. why? Probably to make it look larger than it was on the plate. It still looked laughably small. Oh, and it tasted horribly overwhelmed by pepper. It was then drenched in a very acrid reduction and some white sauce that literally tasted like nothing. Oh, and it came with a bunch of frites..
Pork chop: her plate looked ridiculous too, all the food was on one side of the plate, such a tiny portion. The pork was just ok, but nothing special enough to warrant $38! It came with a scoop of mash that tasted like a salt puck and three olives, which made literally no sense on the plate..
For a place that supposedly prides itself on fresh local ingredients, I was surprised not to find a single vegetable on our plate. When asking the server, they said it was $6 extra for vegetables. Sorry, I didn't realize the $40 entree wouldn't cover vegetables as well.
There is no way this food is prepared by professional chefs. I am so frustrated that a place like this gets great reviews after ripping so many people off.
Do yourself a favour and eat at Brassiere L'ecole or The Palms instead. The food is a billion times better, it comes with vegetables and more than 2 components on your plate, and is far more reasonably priced. I don't know how little jumbo can justify charging more than those places...
Even though this came to well over $100, we were still hungry afterwards because of the ridiculous portion sizes. We eneded up going home and cooking ourselves another meal which, I know, is kind of pathetic.More
