This is a comment not so much on the food, which is the same as ever, nice sides, steak that is tasty if not in the top-of-the-field Lugers/Sparks range, but on their reservations policy.

I want to know if ANYONE has ever been seated on time there. Everytime I go there I am asked to "enjoy a drink" at the bar, no matter what time (early or late) my actual reservation is for. Last night, the table at least manifested itself during our first drink, it's been known to stretch to two in the past.

After a 15 minute wait, we were first offered a lounge table, and told it would be 15-20 additional minutes for a "real" table. It didn't take quite that long, but still...we made the reservation ages ago, don't try to put us in the lounge. :(

I wonder why I go back under those circumstances. That's an existential question that I don't expect you guys to answer.
