Last night I took my 13 year old God daughter who lives in Brooklyn to dinner at Juniors Cheesecake in Brooklyn. For starters the place is very dated, and on the dirty side. It needs major renovations. Our waitress could not care less about any thing, she took our orders without writing them down and this would be impressive if she did not have to walk back to our table 3 times to ask us about our order because she forgot. Also while we were waiting for our food there was a situation in the kitchen and they I quote "had to call in the big guns" judging from the look on the 4 or 5 wait staff faces who did not want to go into the kitchen (since we were sitting right next to the kitchen) I would guess it was a rodent situation. I am not exactly sure. My God daughter was the only smart one she got the 20oz steak and it was good. I got brisket with potato pancakes it was NOT GOOD. My boyfriend got a BBQ chicken and ribs dinner it had a red disgusting mystery sauce on it that did not taste good, his entree also came with pea soup it was like a paste and it tasted burned. Needless to say neither he or I ate our meals. We also ordered calamari which was okay, and an order of mozzarella sticks that were generic at best like maybe school lunch. Lastly the only two vegetable choices were broccoli and collard greens. Can you say disgusting? The most audacious part of the evening is that after 9pm they add a 15% gratuity to the bill but I guess when you have service like that it's the only way the wait staff would be able to get a tip. On an ending note I think it's ridiculous that they have a woman in the bath room pumping hand soap and giving out towels as the place is anything but classy and the fact that you can look into the unkempt kitchen as you go up the stairs to the bathroom doesn't help your eating expierence. In all this was a huge waste of driving time from Bayside Queens and a painful waste of $111.00.
