See my previous glowing post about our first time here. Our group had such a great experience we opted to return on a Friday night about a month later. It was such a disappointment, we are likely not going to return. Everyone ordered a different meal from the last time, and no one had a meal worth eating - except me, I ordered the steak on a stone which was what everyone else DID order on our last visit (except me!). Our waitress started out fine but became nearly invisible. Our service was awful, and the food ranged from mediocre (my steak on a stone and 4 other entrees) to inedible (one meal, hardly touched). The coffee we received after the meal was just plain terrible. 2 of us had Cappuccinos and they were fine. 3 decaf's and a regular coffee were worse than terrible. They smelled like burned rubber. A different waitress took them away and our waitress brought back 'freshly made' coffees, and it was the same thing. Smelled awful and were undrinkable. We got the bill and were adding a tip, but we noticed they added an automatic 20% tip... and did not tell us. So for terrible service we were forced to tip 20% to a less than attentive waitress. In hindsight, our previous bill for the 6 of us probably included the same 20% tip, but we were not told, didn't notice, and that waiter - although he was terrific - ended up with an outrageous tip for his efforts because we DID tip 20% on the total, which likely already included a 20% tip since that is their house policy. C'mon folks, at least TELL us that before we start!
After our 2nd experience, I don't see us returning there, even though we really loved the first time - the atmosphere, ambiance and service. Our weekly Friday night dining group of 6 is again on the hunt for another nice 'regular' dining experience to add to our list of favorite restaurants. This one has unfortunately been taken off the list.
