We had the Chicken Almond Amaretto meal....for $24! Skimpy portion of potatoes that taste like something grandma whips up for a thanksgiving meal (bland, nothing special); small piece of chicken breast with two or three cloves of cauliflower, all soaked in a nasty sweet sherry sauce...mashed potatoes and all! They charge, of what I consider to be higher than average prices, for sub-par skimpy portioned food, and served by a sloppy-put-together waitress. The best part about this place is having to make sure you're all done eating by 8pm because that's when they close the doors, and trust me, they'll send hints that they want you out the door by then.
The big deal last night was their special promotion of "picking the golden ticket" out of a jar (per $30 spent). We picked out a 5% off dinner coupon, and YES, they do nickel and dime you at this place as the other person wrote reviewing this restaurant; I perceived 5% off our dinner as in our whole check, FALSE, they took a measly $1.20 off one of our chicken meals....WOW, I hope they don't break their bank with these generous promotions.
Lastly, keep this in mind, it's about 25 degrees outside last night with the wind blowing, feeling like 25 below, and you walk into the place having to keep your coat on because they're too cheap to have the heat turned up in the place. It felt like it was about 50-55 degrees in there.
I would not recommend anybody attending this restaurant, unless you're a tree-hugging yuppy who likes playing the part, and buying into their marketing gimmick, of buying local. Don't get me wrong, buying local is great, but when a business markets themselves as high quality place with high quality service and products, I expect in return....yes, high quality. I don't understand how a little dump like this stays in business with all the competition out there.
