OpenTable Diner (New York Area)
1.0  Dined on February 14, 2018

This was our second visit here. We opted for the pre fix Valentine's day menu which included and appetizer, two side salads, two entrees, a brownie with ice cream dessert and two glasses on champagne.

The champagne came out with our driveway k order, nothing out of the ordinary.

The appetizer took a long time to come out, we get through about 1/3 of the appetizer when our meals come out, the waitress looks at us and says " he didn't time it ". We ask about our salads and the waitress brings them out, neither has any kind of dressing. After a few tries we manage to flag down our waitress and ask her for some ranch, she brings it.

We finish our salads and our appetizer at which point our food is no longer hot. My wife's half smoked chicken is dry, very dry. My ribs are so so.

Finally the dessert comes out with is a 3 inch wide by 3 inch long by 1/2 inch deep brownie heart and in a bowl next to it a scoop of chocolate ice cream. The brownie was pretty bland and the ice cream was average.

Overall we spent $ 60 on this meal, a beer and an iced tea. There was no organization and the food wasn't worth the money. Will not be returning here.

Did not like the way you pay your bill, they stick a screen in your face can't really review unless you take pad and look at charges. When I asked and received a receipt it showed that I was charged extra for dressing There wasn't enough dressing to begin with

Went here on a whim because I liked the bar menu and the food choices. Neither one disappointed! If I'm ever in the area again, I would come back!

We were able to watch our soccer match while we ate, and see Messi score against Real Madrid, while we ate our delicious ribs. Our guests said the brisket was great as well.
