La Palette - on the downward slope ?

Whatever has happened to this old favorite of mine ? Used to love the steak frites, served with tarragon butter - they changed that. The foie gras used to be served in generous portions, now it is tiny at $18 or so. But the worst feature is the decline in service - always before it was unconventional, but so friendly and anxious to please as to make up for any shortcomings. The other night our waiter was positively rude - when we reminded him we had asked for more ice water perhaps 5-6 minutes after our original request (we were on our second bottle of wine), he kept moving, didn't make eye contact, dismissively waved at us and said in an annoyed, condescending tone "Oh it's on its way." Sorry, La P - your prices are no longer of a cheqap and cheerful quaint bistro; and you have lots of competition. Time to smarten up. Have any other readers seen the deterioration in service and to an extent in food of late ?
