service still leaves a lot to be desired
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed 5 days ago

haven't been back since last time we had bad service a year ago hoping for an improvement. unfortunately the service is still bad. this time around we were disappointed with the food as well. the place was quite full most of the time we were there so they must be doing something right.

very good food, good service

I wrote a review of this restaurant a few years back, but thought I would update it. The food is very tasty, so that much has not changed. Since we remembered that the restaurant was noisey last time and full to the brim, we arrived just as the restaurant was opening in the evening. That was a good move. It was quiet for the first hour or so, until the restaurant filled up. There is a variegated menu, the portions are large. But, it is not a cheap restaurant -- a bit overpriced. The one item that was not up to the other standards displayed here were the drinks. My martini was definitely "off." It was not prepared well or correctly. I suggest ordering wine instead.

Good Food and Poor Service

To start with, this was two of my children's birthday go to restaurant and we do not even keep kosher. We really like their food have been visiting twice a year for quite some time. The service was never good. At best it was passable. My children would say that we come for the food, not the service. Tonight the treatment was egregious and we will not return. We were seated in the lower area between the kitchen and the bathrooms. They warned us when we made the reservation, fair enough. After being seated we were ignored for ten minutes, not even given water, despite being the only customers in the restaurant. We spent the entire evening flagging down waitresses for service. The waitress asked how the food was after we had all finished eating. During the meal, the manager asked us to move tables because he wanted to join tables together to seat a larger party. I told him we did not want to move closer to the kitchen on one sider or closer to the bathrooms on the other. He insisted. We moved. I tipped 5% and planned on talking to the manager on the way out. A waitress complained to us that our tip was too small. I tried explaining what bothered us about the service. She did not enquire how the restaurant could do better. She said, "I brought you water twice," in a belligerent tone. I worked years in restaurants waiting tables and understand service well. I am particularly forgiving having been on the other side of the plates and tend to tip well. It hurts me to write bad review and tip that low. It hurts me more that our little family tradition is no more.
