Hayes Street Grill disappointment

babyfork | Nov 10, 2003 03:19 PM

My husband and I went to Hayes Street Grill on Saturday. We hang out in Hayes Valley a lot, but for some reason had never got around to eating at the Hayes Street Grill. What a bust! I ordered the sturgeon with caper-butter and this is what I got: a completely plain sturgeon steak on a plate with a little cup of melted butter with capers in it and some french fries. My husband ordered the rib eye and for $28 he got a small rib eye with some herb butter and fries. Our waiter also brought us a small plate of completely plain white rice. I felt like I was on doctor's order's to eat a completely bland diet or something! It was expensive and weird. What am I missing here? I know that this is an established restaurant that attracts a pre-opera crowd. Is my experience typical? We felt totally ripped off...
