Rosalie report

I'm posting this for my girlfriend, who went to Rosalie for dinner with a friend last week-end. Overall, the experience was a disaster. The food was bland to frankly bad, for instance a Lapin a la Moutarde that tasted like chicken with 2 pounds of salt added (although the accompanying fresh pasta were good). The appetizer was not better and very salty: a "shrimp and swordfish bisque" which had big chunks of vegetables and scallops... Service was barely competent, with multiple mistakes made; their server was unpleasantly pretentious, and the waitresses had a tough time walking around the room with their 4-inch shiny heels - the place almost felt like a nudie bar, especially with the 80-90's music blaring. My girlfriend, not one who easily complains or makes a scene, was actually compelled to call the manager to let him know how outrageous it was to ask this kind of money for that bad quality of food. He tried to placate her with a creme brulee, supposedly their big dessert attraction. Well, we make better creme brulee at home; the only outstanding feature was its huge size, which frankly shouldn't be the selling point for any dessert. All in all, she feels this is probably the worst dinner she's had in a restaurant.
