Delicious food; Dumb “Rules.”

The food was absolutely delicious and the variety abundant. I’ve visited Rodriguez many times before an have always rated ii five stars. I’ve rated it three stars this time however, because while the food was as delicious as ever, some new “rules” were put in place terrible soured my overall experience. There are so many wonderful places to dine in Jerusalem, so if I’m going to spend a few thousand shekel for an evening out with family and friends, I’d prefer to spend it at an establishment that’s not penny wise but pound foolish. Under their new “rule,” everyone seated must order a main dish. If not, then you’re “fined” a 45 shekel “seating fee” for the amount of participants not ordering a main. We were notified of this “rule” as we were being seated. 45 shekel is less than $10, so the actual dollar amount isn’t the point. It’s the “Chutzpa” of the matter. We were a party of twelve. We ordered appetizers for the entire party in addition to wine, cocktails and other “non-obligatory,” yet costly, items. But, alas, with all the (paid) food and drink on the table we ended up ordering eleven main dishes, rather than twelve. Our bill was over 3,000 shekel. They did well on us that night. But, alas, let’s not forget about the 45 shekel “seating fine” for the one individual who didn’t order a main. The epitome of “Chutzpah.” As delicious as the food is and has always been, I will no longer grace this establishment with my family’s presence. (They ended up “waiving” the fee, which I protested very adamantly out of principal, not money.)

Took the family for a meal at this fine restaurant. Up;scale - Mehadrin. Food was delicious and portions were plentiful. Location a little out of the way, but 15 minute taxi ride from center city. Prices were high, but generally speaking you get what you pay for. I would be helpful if the menu stated that certain steak cuts should only bed eaten by the Sefardic community and that Ashkenazic custom generally does not allow Filet Mignon or sirloin steaks to be eaten. All in all will go back again.
