We went to Red Door Bistro last night and it is now officially out of the rotation. Their food, service, and prices have been yo-yo-ing almost since the day they opened, and was no different last night. We were greeted with - yet another! - new menu with increased prices. And, the food and service are not in keeping with the cost. The French onion soup was bland and not warm enough. The steak and frites were OK, but certainly not worth 28 bucks. And, in the place of aioli, I swear that they brought out some kind of salad dressing.

The restaurant staff does not seem confident. In addition to waiter, we had another gentleman (I think a manager) serving us and asking us how everything was. It is certainly not in the "bad" category, but it is definitely mediocre. There are better restaurants in the price range.

It is a shame, because we need more mid-range, bistro-style establishments in the city.
