DiFebo's lost its touch or just a "bad" night? Review.

With recs from this board and friends, we went to DiFebo's. We had to wait, even though we had a reservation. We were then seated at a table and left there. Many minutes passed before we even got a menu. More time passed. Finally, some water in our glasses. Since we had no one to give a drink order to, we all drank our water. Or, at least tried to. The water had a very weird taste. When we finally got a waitress and told her, no apology, just a "oh, someone probably poured water into a dirty Sprite pitcher...happens all the time." Not a good thing. When we were finally able to order, I ordered the garlic-crusted fish of the day, which was halibut. Others in my party ordered the lobster ravioli. The order took almost 1/2 hour to arrive, but we figured they must have been short-handed or understaffed or something. My halibut was overcooked and dry; the lobster ravioli had a cold center. All in all, not a pleasant dining experience.
The waitress kept pushing appys (we had a big lunch and did not want any appys)...saying the ravioli is a very small portion and we should really order appys. Trying to pad the bill for a larger tip? Who knows. We only know it was a very disappointing dining experience and it's doubtful we'll want to give DiFebo's another try.
