Dinner was decent. Steak was SOOOOOOOO yum...they cook them @ like 1800 degrees and then serve on a 500 degree plate so it can still cook while on the table!
We shared a bunch of apps:
BBQ Shrimp: DELISH...in a creamy/buttery sauce
Crab 'Tini: yum, lots of lump crab over a slaw-ish mix
Crab Cakes: less lump crab than raved about, but still decent
Chopped Salad: FULL of Bleu, thumbs down from me
Buffalo Mozz & Beefsteak Tomato: Mozz was PERF as was the Balsamic, Tomatoes were BEYOND inedible, hard, mealy and GROSS!
I had the 12 oz filet (petite was 8 oz)--was v good, drenched in butter and I ate like 1/4 of it.
A had filet Oscar (filet w/ Asparagus and a crabcake over it) and about a gallon of Bearnaise. Everyone else on my end of the table had the filet as well (I was LATE and had to sit @ the head, ick!). Couple people had fish, Salmon was WAY salty.
I tasted almost all the Sides:
Potatoes Lyonnaise: BY FAR the yummiest (but not as good as the 1/2 and 1/2 @ the Palm)
Mashed: Pretty good, though got cold v fast:(
Gratin Patotoes: again, cold by the time they made it to my end of the table, but yummy
Roasted Tomatoes: Gross like the salad, super hard
Creamed Spinach: Also cold by the time I got it but v creamy
Sauteed spinach: not a ton of flavor
Did not taste the Asparagus, Broccoli or Mushrooms
We got them all for the table:)---VERY overpriced in my opinion, like $10.95
Mocha Cake: Eh, not great
Apple Tart: HUGE w/ ice cream, served hot, v good
Sin Chocolate Cake: Like solid espresso, TOO rich
Berries in Cream: Cream was tasteless
Creme Brulee: Good, but not like Turner's (my fav.)
Service: another story....VEEEEEEEEEEERY slow. I arrived late and it took a good 20 min for my Martini and a black napkin. Martini was decent but A had warned me to ask for EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA olive juice as hers was pretty weak, and I only got 2 olives:( Our waiter was good but slow (not all his fault I am sure), I guess the bar is WAY on the other side of the restaurant. Busser need some work as well, VERY slow.
Panna for still and I think Pellegrino for sparkling (we only had still) and the bread is mediocre...sourdough-ish baguette. Nothing too special, I think Smith and Wollensky is far better.
Should I submit to Boston.com? LOL!
