Cleveland: Disappointing Report on Players on Madison

Randy | Oct 20, 2005 08:29 PM

I used to LOVE Players on Madison, but I must report on a very disappointing meal last night. Started with a prawn appetizer wrapped in phylo. The server announced as he set the dish down "just so you know, the heads are still on." What a silly way to serve a fried finger food dish! But the kicker was that the prawns were rancid, runny and nasty, obviuosly spoiled, and had to be sent back. The substitute dish was a mediocre calimari. The main course, striped bass with a cornmeal coating, was poorly conceived and prepared. The coating was entirely too thick, and the dish was way overcooked. Striped bass deserves better! The server was somewhat haughty too. I sincerely hope this was just an off night!
