Alto Palato ?

We went to this restaurant because it was listed as one of the best in the LA Times magazine last week. Yikes!! I was there on Sunday, waiter recommended a dish so highly, I thought it was going to be fantastic, however, it was only more expensive than my other choice, (I had one while my boyfriend had the other). We had a hard time getting water (seemed simple). All this is petty until added to the fact that it seemed there was an attempt to rip us off. I was in a group of 6. We sent three credit cards off with the bill (around $450), two came back with $147 charged and the other with $174. Okay, maybe just another mistake. Then upon closer inspection, they had added what seemed to be a bottle of $78 wine that was not ours. Another mistake? The apologies, no.. apology, seemed insincere. We won't be going there again. If you do...I suggest you check your bill VERY carefully!!
