Dinner at George tonight. Service issues galore. Just because I don't want goat cheese on my salad doesn't mean you need to drop it off others' salads. Just because you say "this doesn't contain cilantro" doesn't make it true (i.e. my amuse bouche). And for heaven's sake, get the seat numbers correct on a 4-top so you're not dropping the wrong dishes in front of the wrong guests. Don't say "I'll bring more bread" and then completely forget and clear my sauce-laden plate with cutlery not in exit position.
Yes, the lobster chickpea fritter 2nd was good. Yes, the venison with rapini was good. Salad with asparagus and pistachios was too soggy and limp. Dessert of twice-baked chocolate soufflé quite mediocre.
How is this place always in some Chowhounders' Top 10 lists?
