Saturday night. Early reservation. Not too crowded. Nice table. Good waitstaff. It's all good. Until the food arrives. This generally reliable bistro (local for us), turned out a truly bad night of food. We were a party of five adults, two very oldsters, but all with seasoned palates. Salads? Just ok. Pear & gorgonzola needed a touch more dressing. Dinners? Boneless spare ribs were surprisingly tough. Two of us ordered the steak special. Hers, asked for medium, came ultra-rare and had to be returned to the kitchen. Mine, asked for rare, was so poorly trimmed, that I exhausted myself trying to saw through sinew and gristle to get to about 2 inches worth of fat. Also pretty much raw rather than rare. Also had to be returned. Hoping for better results with dessert, our companion with a sweet tooth ordered the blonde brownie special with popcorn ice cream which the table discussed and decided was worth a try. The wrong dessert appeared and it wasn't until it was tasted that we discovered the error. By then, after a desultory dinner, we were all too tired and slightly cranky to wait to have the order replaced with the correct one although our kind waitress definitely offered. I saw the tab, picked up by my 91 year old Dad, and between drinks for three, two desserts, a little wine, one beer, and the offending steaks, he dropped just about $250 -- quite a lot for them. And way too much, in my humble opinion, for the kind of meal we were served. He was disappointed to have treated us all to such a disappointing meal. And so were we. It might have been just a bad night, but so many errors with no recognition of the lapeses in the subsequent check??? Meh. Won't be back soon.
