Interesting Experience at Brasserie 8 1/2

I took my sister to Brasser 8 1/2 for dinner last night. The waiter was dissapointing. When I asked for a bottle of rose he asked me if I knew it wasn't Zinfandel. Um...yes? Then we were mentioning among ourselves that we were interested in the lobster special. My sister addressed the waiter and asked if there were specials. The waiter said "Yes. But if you are going to get the lobster then I'm not going to describe them in detail." What???

That being said the lobster special (2 lb. lobster for $25) was very good. I also liked the ambiance. The best part was the drinks in the bar area before dinner. Interesting place but it doesn't have much to recommend it over better restaurants in the area.
