In case there is any doubt with anybody, it's a definite "no" with this place in Burbank, at least in my book. Seeming promising as a OK place on paper, website and a review or two, it was a flop for us Saturday night. Corporate to the Nth degree, it churned out overcooked steaks, greasy duck with limp skin, duck fat potatoes cooked hours earlier and various other boring (at best) accoutrements. The waitress was well-meaning but forgot to bring drinks and other dishes during appetizers and main course. My steak was to be served with caramelized onions; upon inquiry, the waitress said, "It's served with two." Two? The steak revealed that "two" meant 2 greasy onion rings on top. Oh, when I complained about the potatoes not being fresh, what does she do? She brings out MORE of 'em on my guests plates. They should hang out a sign that says, "Is food really that important?"
