    I have been to this restaurant several times, and have always enjoyed the service and the food. The trout in brown butter is excellent, it never fails to impress. My dining partner had the New York Strip, and it was one of the best steaks he had ever eaten. It is not cheap to eat here, but it is definitely worth the price.

    French onion soup is always very tasty, generous, and if sharing, they split the soup into two separate containers, each with it's own cheese. This is the first time I got the steak-frits (one of the most popular items on the menu) The frits were great and the steak was flavored well (albeit a bit chewy & tough, but after all , it is NOT a filet) My partner's (Sunday special) beef wellington was delicious. Our server was available, and helpful.

    Dined on 9/8/2014
    I arrived promptly but was ignored (staff mtg.). A waiter told me they were still setting up and it would take a few minutes. Then another gentleman seated the three reservations behind me. We sat outside at a small table but moved to a larger table due to the sun. The waiter voiced his displeasure that we took a larger table even though there was plenty of seating at the time. It took apx. 15 minutes for a waiter to take our order. I ordered a salad. The seared tuna and greens were very fresh but it tasted boring. I ordered a dessert to split and the waiter probably didn't hear me and brought two desserts. The dessert was incredible (bananas foster)! Before I left, I noticed parties of 2 at other larger tables outside.

    Fortunately this was not our first time here as there were problems with the air conditioning, water leaking through ceiling tiles, open doors due to the problem (despite the heat), and half of the restaurant not available for seating. The food was fine, we had the lamb special, but we've had better cuisine there and it was quite pricy for the size of the main course which was bony and disappointing. It was a hot night and you could see the stress on the employees--they should have closed and not subjected anyone to the existing condition.

    The food is fantastic, the wine selection is great but you get sit so close to others specially in back room that it's hard to carry a conversation if you have to speak louder than the 6inch apart next table. God special occasion you get a mini dessert, but to my surprise I was charge for it. If I knew that I would order something I like instead. Lots of parking.

    We were seated in a back room next to a table with noisy children. the table was against a wall off windows. i was going to sit with my right arm to the wall since my husband and i are both right handed but he wanted to face out, does not like facing a wall. the host pulled the table out a bit to give him more room. That little touch was appreciated and diffused a uncomfortable start to our meal. I also appreciate the gluten free menu and getting to enjoy bread with my meal. We both enjoyed our meals.

Wine list overpriced more than normal and corkage is $25. why not make it $100 - same result. I have been going to Lettuce restaurants for 40 years and this is the worst. Will never return.
