Brasserie Jo - disappointing

Checky | Oct 15, 2005 09:54 AM

We had a gift certificate to Brasserie Jo and decided to check it out last night since my parents were in town. The service was poor: the waiter hardly talked to us, didn't ask if we wanted water, brought us one water vs. four when one person asked for it, forgot to bring several items, etc. It was busy, but there seemed to be plenty of staff.

The food was okay, but not great. Two of us had the steamers and lobster bouillabaisse. The bouillabaisse had a lot of good seafood in it, but not a lot of flavor. The other two had clam chowder and steak frites. The steak frites was barely edible: a very thin, tough slab of beef. The profiteroles for dessert were probably the highlight of the night. I was surprised about the quality of service and food, and wonder if others have had a similar experience or it was just a bad night.
