I concede-Lugers in rapid decline mode!

I read the posts the other day, and I didn't want to answer. I was there for my b-day in January and noticed it was not the tremendous experience I was used to. Went back this past Friday, and same subpar experience. The place is not what it once was.

First, the list they use for reservations is ridiculous. They couldn't find my name in the mess, and gave me an attitude as if I were lying about the reservation.

The waiter came over, and I ordered my highly anticipated meal. For the salad, garlic french dressing. Ivan actually went as far as telling me it was no longer made there. Thankfully, Karl came over and when I asked him he got it for me. Very weird.

The rest of everything was ok, the steak had some bites that reminded me of the old times, but all in all there are better options out there now-ones that don't require 2 months notice.
