Sorry Richard's Bistro... but you are off my list!

For years I have touted Richard's Bistro as Manchester NH's finest eatery. But that has changed, and I say that with a heavy heart, and a near empty stomach. (Well.... except for the bread... I did eat that because it is still the best bread basket in town)
Here is how this happened. I went about a month ago, and the food was still good, but the service was way off what is usually was. The server was rude and made a comment to me that I felt was very rude and embarrassing. I brushed it off and gave Richards another chance because it is after all my favorite restro!
Then, came my daughter’s birthday dinner. What a letdown! My stuffed lobster came and it was a shadow of its former self! There was very very little meat it in at all... no knuckle bits, not a claw to be seen and the tail meat was stringy and sparse... there was only 2 tiny shrimp and one scallop, and a TON and I mean TON of not even crushed crackers.. Almost whole crackers in the stuffing. And at $35 WITHOUT a side or salad I was peeved. Seems they dropped the price of the entrees by a couple bucks, and then dropped the usual salad that comes with it. (They did not inform me of this and I ended up paying an extra $8 for a salad.
Needless to say... Richards you are OFF my list. Sorry.
