La Dijionase - sort of a let down

I see recommendations left and right for La Dijionase as a nice place to eat in Culver City. I was there on Saturday kind of at an odd time between lunch and dinner (around 5:30). I had a mixed greens salad with the french onion soup. My husband had the sliced filet mingon sandwich and french fries. He said his sandwich was ok. My soup was pretty decent. Nothing out of this world but it was solid. The salad was ok. The lettuce was a bit passed it's prime but not terrible. The vinaigrette was fine. Our server was pretty terrible. He was not friendly or helpful at all. He had to confirm my order with me twice (soup and salad was on the menu) and not very complicated. Then he neglected to enter the fries into our order (comes separately as a side not part of the sandwich) so our meal came out without fries. We clearly had to wait for them to be made they weren't just running behind. We did not feel particularly welcome in the restaurant. They weren't crowded at all so that was odd. Our server did have a warm, lengthy embrace with a female while he was standing next to us (with an aparant girlfirend) that was also off-putting. The service seemed a bit slow for the restaurant being about 1/3 full. I'd give it another chance but I wasn't impressed.
