When I'm in Jerusalem for shabbos I like to splurge ( and stuff myself) on a fine upscale shabbos day buffet.
I started at the plaza, they had quite a spread I then upgraded to the citadel ( last time i was there it was around $125 a oerson(!). But well worth it.
This time we were looking forward to a very upscale ( we were 7 people. - it costed well over a thousand dollars) experience at the new Waldorf Jerusalem.
Here is my report:
Ambience. Very nice. I think the citadel with its view of the wall is much nicer but this is a beautiful lobby etc.
Utterly disappointing. Really sub par.
The fish tasted ( and probably was) jar fish.
The cholent was tasteless. My portion was undercooked. Mainly potatoes.
The meat had no taste. Except for the corned beef and a little lamb on the side. But they ran out of that quickly.
Yerushalmi kugel- tasteless.
The little food I bought at " Heimish Essen" in rechavya tasted much better. ....
They had a small dessert table it was nice and tasty. But nothing like plaza and citadel.
Bottom line I'm very disappointed and won't return unless I hear some real change.
