Inn of the 7th Ray: Food okay, service lousy

Golem | Mar 11, 2008 10:05 AM

We had a family dinner at the Inn of the 7th Ray last Saturday night. It is a beautiful restaurant, but the first sign of problems was the space heaters were not all working. We ordered wine, and it was quite some time later that we got the wine and some very tasty bread. Because of the evening chill, a couple of our table guests were not comfortable, and could not enjoy the meal.

Service was borderline terrible. Only about half of the tables had diners.

While the food was okay, it was still nothing exceptional.

The final insult: you have to pay for valet parking. When we got to the parking lot, the valet handed us our keys, we paid for the parking ($4.00), and opened the car doors for our party, ourselves.

Our bill for 7 people, three bottles of wine, and desert, was over $400. Not horrible, but I expect good service when we pay those kinds of prices for dining out.
