Just wondering what other's experiences have been, Went for my first and unquestionably last meal there.

VERY ordinary

Escargot appetizer was swimming in garlic. Normally one cannot over do garlic on this dish, but they did, and it was bordering on burnt. A Chicken Dijonaise was drowning in sauce. The Veal Oscar was beyond uninspired. Far too much cartelidge in the crab meat (which I rank up there with finding an egg shell in your omlete in terms of spoiling the mood).

A medium filet mignon came out far too done.

Overall very bland. Horrible ambience I might add
