We have been going to MK for our wedding anniversary for the past 5-6 years. We have gone back each year because of the food, service, and the fact that, while fancy and fit for a special occasion, it never felt pretentious. We went for our 7 year anniversary last weekend and we both left a little sad and disappointed. There were a few changes that have been made since last year when we came and we did not feel those were for the better - and maybe it was an off night too with the service and the heat. One of things I'm completely a sucker for is when they used to give us our own menu with "happy anniversary" written on the top, as well as usually written on our dessert and we had received wishes from the hostess and our waiter (one year even a $25 gc to use on our next visit!). This year, the only person that said it (and was very sweet) was the woman who took us to our table. Second, the bread. Their focaccia bread is delicious and we would always get excited to look at the (free) bread basket and pick our favorites (sometimes a couple times!). Now it costs $7 for 4 pieces of focaccia bread and some radishes. Look, we can afford the $7 and we did of course order it because we love it. But it's a really hard sell to long-time customers that what they once offered for free is now $7. If you're going to make that decision in order to get more money or whatever, maybe just make it $3-$4 - or give a lot of bread and make it worth $7! Then my salmon was such a small piece. I have also ordered that before and it felt like it was half the size, and it took forever (which our waiter had warned us they were behind), but it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for!
Overall, the food as always was delicious. But where we used to leave feeling special, a little pampered, and money well spent, this time we left with disappointment. I would suggest management take a revised look at the changes they have implemented. I want to go back next year, but not sure we will.
