First of all, let me be the first to share in your hockey Gold Medal and the overall success of the games in Vancouver. As an upstate New Yorker and frequent visitor to your great country and the beautiful city of Montreal, we are thrilled and very proud consider ourselves friends and neighbors. Oh,Canada!
Now, to the point.
Recently, we had dinner at Moishe's and my wife and I agreed it was less than stellar. All of our previous experiences have left us with great memories and only the highest accolades.
I should note we were there on Valentines Day, and they seemed to be churning out dinners at a speedy rate. This may have had an impact on the quality of the meal. The service was excellent, as usual. A very classy bunch.
Our issue was with steaks, yes, the reason we were there and what they do best. My wife's junior rib steak was something we can get a Ponderosa, about one-quarter inch thick , and frankly, tasteless. My Filet was 30% inedible fat and had mediocre flavor. I also thought the wines were overpriced.
So please, tell me we just had a bad visit because it was a holiday or some kind of fluke. We have always loved this restaurant and also understand it is all about the beef, but this time we were let down.
As always, I look forward to this board for input and critique. Your opinions are important to me as we intend to visit again soon, and, as usual frequently thereafter.
Again, I raise a glass to our neighbors to the north !!!
