Bouchon is going down hill! Oh no!

Had a terrible experience at Bouchon on Saturday night.
The service was absolutely diabolical.

Waiter over hyped the soup special - a cod and crab chowder - promising big chunks of fish and crab flown in fresh that day (I would hope so!) - but what I got was a bowl of cream with barely any chunks of fish and only 2 chunks of potato. Very disappointing.

Lamb shank special however, was delicious and was the big hit of the night.

Veggie friend was extremely disappointed in the only vegetarian entree on the menu. I tasted it, and so was I. Other friend ordered moule et frites and was also under whelmed.

Sat with dirty plates for 20 minutes before anyone showed up to clear them away.

Then waiter came and asked if we wanted coffee. We ordered coffee, then realized he had not offered desert! We called him back for the desert menu. Our coffee arrived. Sat there. Went cold. Still no desert menu. I asked if we could at least get macaroons to go with our coffee. "I'll check" he said. 15 minutes later he came back with 3 little brownie bites tied in a bag and said "no macaroon but I got these to go for you." I guess he didn't want us around!

Second waiter finally came back and asked if we wanted desert. My friend replied "no thanks, I'm already full... on disappointment!"

Possibly the worst service I have ever had in my life.
