...very damn noisy, and an annoying touch of condescension from the waitstaff!

Anything about that place is probably "old news" on this board, but I finally got there last night, and was VERY impressed with the quality of the cooking. Unfortunately, though, due to those other two factors, I shall probably never return.

(And, by the way, my friend and I were "presentable" enough that-- on a crowded night-- they gave the TWO of us a high-visibility table-for-FOUR near the front door, so it wasn't as if we were total slobs and "deserved" that slight-but-grating hint of "attitude".)

Is that pretty much the "usual" experience there?
