Trevor really that good?

After reading chowhounders rave reviews of Trevor, I finally decided to try it out the week after Christmas with a friend. We were seated promptly and courteously. However, after informing our server immediately that we would be annoyingly leisurely with ordering our food (we explained we hadn't seen each other for 5 years), she proceeded to continually hover over us, making us feel stressed over ordering our food. Now I understand just how frustrating it is for a server to wait for an order, however, I made it clear to her that when we were ready to order, we would wave her down. Personally, if the table was needed for a second seating, it was also her responsibility to inform us, rather than creating a stressful, intrusive atmosphere.

My friend had the beef cheeks, which were admitedly excellent, although not in my opinion a particularly difficult dish to master. I had the venison with foie gras which was not good. The venison was tough, and I could not distinguish any foie gras either in flavor or in appearance. Overall, not really impressed.

In addition, the wine list was much too heavy in Australian reds for my liking.

The low ceiling, and "basement" feel to the place is definitely NOT conducive to tall people. It felt very claustrophobic.

Its not that I hated my experience, it was just ok. Perhaps in the future I'll try it out for a drink and order off the bar menu.
