This breaks our heart. Starfish was the go to restaurant for years. Often, the evening begins with a visit to the bar across the street at the Montage, then carefully waiting for the cross walk to enter a foodies dining delight.
This time sonethibg was wrong. A ten minute wait to be greeted. More minutes for menus. No drinks and we ordered just two entries to make a quick exit. That took nearly 1/2 and hour, just sitting and fidgeting with the chopsticks.
Having dined around the world, and never posting a review prior, I hope the experience was just due to an off night. The result was the exact opposite of every prior time there.
