disappointing meal at Per Se

Anyone eaten at Per Se recently and had a disappointing meal? The first time I ate there I was over the moon and declared it was the best meal ( including many *** Michelin restaurants) of my life.
Maybe it was because it was Sunday. But last week the food wasn't terrific. Over salted and the lamb was tough. But the service was awful ( for those prices anyway). Extracting the choices of champagne by the glass was like getting blood out of a stone, no refills on water or bread, husband had chipped glass. And the biggest service crime - presenting the bill without it being requested, and no we weren't the last people in the place.
True they did substitute a dessert but then I question the wisdom of a brownie in late July especially as the meal includes many freebie artisinal chocs as after meal petits fours.
But the worse crime - the total lack of interest in my disappointment either at the time or later when I emailed the restaurant.
Well one thing is for sure I won't be returning and my word of mouth will be not to waste the considerable amount they take off you for a less than stellar occasion.
