Four post only because the first three were censored by Forumosa.

I've been there only once, but in terms of food, service, ambience and yes, even the slightly high price, it rates among one of the nicest places at which I've ever eaten. I certainly got no impression of arrogance or any other kind negative vibe about the place. Just VERY good food in a VERY nice atmosphere with VERY nice staff.
Hats off to them for making such a success out of such a tiny niche market. Long may they continue.

Yes, we do our very best to weed out idiocy on the forums. Sometimes we come up short. I'm letting your fourth post stand as testament to our failings in this regard, and also because you added a very wee bit of substance (the food was ordinary). Normally, I'd temp that as lacking necessary pith, but your insistence to display your ignorance wins the day! Well done, Eskimo! :bravo:

For future reference, you're going to need a lot more substance than a perceived (and unarticulated) unpleasant telephone manner if you want to disparage a restaurant. And repeatedly posting the same bumfluff AFTER you've been warned by PM would normally get you suspended quickly. You're lucky it's Christmas, or that it's a sunny day, or something. Don't do it again, please. :no-no:

But what restaraunts like that always forget, steeped in their stupid arrogance, is this: Restaurant visits are not just supposed to be pleasing to the taste buds. It's a total experience, and the behavior of the staff is important too.

The woman who answers the phone IS rude!

I dealt with a very rude woman there a few years ago, when they relocated.

Then today we decided to try them out (at hubby's insistence).

This time hubby rang to inquire about prices and times....and according to him the woman who answered the phone was also rude and impatient.

Not sure it was the same woman as two years ago.

I've heard great things about their food, but decided to not go ahead with a booking in order to avoid any potential unpleasantness that may occur when dealing with her in person.
