Menu Says RibEye--Was Served Porterhouse!!

Nancy Ives | Aug 16, 2001 11:03 PM

We went to The Vine in Putnam, CT for dinner. As usual mediocre at best but in this area mediocre is tolerated. My dinner partner ordered a Ribeye Steak and got a Porterhouse. He asked the waitress and she was so out of it she kept saying "I don't know, I don't know." I am not kidding. No one came to the table and nothing was done. Believe me, I know my steak (my grandfather, father and x were all butchers at one point in their lives) and I love Porterhouse but when you expect another cut of beef you are kind of disappointed. My partner ate his dinner but was very upset. I told him to talk to a manager but he felt there was no issue because the Porthouse Steak was good. When I paid the bill I crossed out Ribeye and put Porterhouse. An annoying experience at a just okay restaurant.
