AMA- worst meal and worst experience EVER- anywhere in the world!

Went back to AMA after a long layoff. We were missing ex chef's Pat's specials, so we ventured back. The bread was great as ever. BUT, the artichoke salad didn't taste fresh, nor was it very tasty. Chef Pat's signature dish of mussels came out ok, but he mussels were miniscule. A special of tuna came out so salty it was uneatable. When it was sent back, the bartender instead of the manager came over to tell us the chef wasn't making another one- he said he liked it and there was nothing wrong with it- He (the bartender) threw the check down on the table. Needless to say, we were charged for the uneaten tuna- I guess the restaurant needed the money. Anyway, our waiter came over humiliated and so apologetic. He knew we were right, but hey, he has to make a living. I should add that Chef Pat's not been with Ama for over a year, they're just using his recipes.

All I can say, is AVOID AMA at ALL COSTS and go anywhere else- Their attitude and mediocre food doesn't deserve our business. This once fantastic restaurant has totally gone downhill to the bottom of the list!
