I hate it when steakhouses don't respect the fish!

So, one of my business partners and I had dinner this week at NY Prime in your fair town. I have eaten large quanities and embibed there many times as it's an easy walk from the Ritz-Buckhead. I have been watching what I eat lately and decided to go with the sea bass. I asked how it was prepared and got the response "light coating of seasoned breadcrumbs, a little lemon, white wine and butter and under a hot broiler". Sounded fine. I asked for no butter and was good to go. When the fish came to the table, not only was it overcooked (on a very hot plate, so I imagine it had been under a lamp), it was covered with a crumb topping that was rife with toasted garlic ( I am guessing it was raw when it went under the broiler). so strong that I could not really taste the fish. I ate it mostly because the food was secondary to the conversation, but the garlic was so strong that I got up in the middle of the night and ate a lemon and drank a liter of sparkling water to cut the aftertaste. In retrospect, what in the heck were they thinking doing that to a delicate cut of fish? What a waste, especially for such an expensive eatery. I usually eat steak in steakhouses and seafood in seafood joints, but admit to being surpised at the lack of respect given to the fish. Is this often the case? Inquiring minds want to know.
