“I had been so excited to try this restaurant after reading the rave reviews in Diablo Magazine. My husband and I got reservations on a Fri nite and headed out. Because of the dismal parking situation, and my painful high heels, he dropped me off and parked the car. I made my way to the bar, got a front row seat, and waited 10 min for someone to even make eye contact and acknowledge my presence. It took about 10 min to get a glass of wine. By that time my husband arrived on the scene. We got a nice table, ordered the cheese fondue which was good. That was the highlight of the dinner. He ordered soup, I ordered the beet salad. Both marginal. But they were great compared to the entrees. My husband ordered the pork chop (totally pathetic when compared to the pork chop at lets say...Mustards). The cabbage it sat on was just weird (and I love red canbbage). I ordered a sea bass which sat in a tastless, yet very fattening, cream sauce. The sauce had carrots, potatoes and absolutely no flavor. I barely touched it but the server did not even come remotely close to asking if I enjoyed the meal.
The worst part was the dessert. We ordered a warm chocolate cake. It was soooo bad, the inside a gelatinous pile of muck, that I (a devoted chocoholic) could not even eat it. The accompanying ice cream had chunks of ice in it. I could not tolerate it any longer and I actually send it back to the kitchen. Our server did not have the basic courtesy to remove that item from the check. What a total, and expensive, disappointment.....
