Ashmont Grill service question

Smokee | Jul 13, 2006 02:23 PM

I ate at the Ashmont Grill two nights ago for the first time. Fig and prosciutoo app, Flatiron Steak and Cruste Cod for mains.Fries as a side. Meals were good, maybe a touch small and a touch pricey for what they were but not a big deal. Service, friendly, efficient. My gripe is this. Is it too much to expect new silverware when you've finished your appetizer or salad and the mains arrive? It kills me when the initial set up is 2 Forks 1 knife, you use the salad fork and knife for the app, the main arrives, and the used knife goes right back on the table. This might fly at a diner, but when you're charging between $15-$22 for a main, I don't think clean silverware is allot to ask.
