Attitude at Mark Joseph [moved from Manhattan Board]

Last week, my husband, our son, and I went to Mark Joseph for dinner. My son lives in the building and not only frequents the restaurant, but takes out some of the delicious sides when he is cooking at home. We weren't starving and ordered one round of drinks, 2 caesar salads, a porterhouse for two, creamed spinach, sauteed mushrooms and shared a dessert. A light meal by steakhouse standards....the server clearly wasn't happy that we weren't ordering another main or a bottle of wine. The restaurant wasn't full but most of the other tables were the typical large groups of men celebrating their deals. The steak was very good, it had that mineral tang, the creamed spinach was excellent, and the mushrooms were also good. The caeser sald had no greated cheese or anchovy taste. The cheesecake was worth the calories. All that said, I feel that you should be welcomed at a restaurant regardless of how much you order (within reason). We are low maintainence and tip well. Must everyone in the party order a main dish all the time?
