So sad... a 45 minute wait, AFTER your reservation time? That's unacceptable. And mediocre food for a bajillion dollars is just not cool. I'd be interested to try the wine bar, but I wonder if it's always packed?

Yeah, food at those prices (in this town) should be basically perfect if you asked me. We will stick to the wine bar and maybe sample a few things from the main menu while there. Bummer.


Nice review, you should do this as a living.

In Pasadena, CA not TX, there's is a restaurant called Parkway Grill. I've had some of the best food I've ever eaten in Pasadena and my wife, some of the worst. The service is mediocre to 5 star. Odd how we can have such totally different experiences at the same place.

On my wife's 50th I took her to Spago in LA. While making the reservations I was asked at the end what else they could do for me, I joked "Ask Wolfgang to come to our table..." he did and wished my wife a happy birthday, we have pics. Some of the food was over salted, though tasty, the the service crap. His Chinois on Main is fabulous though noisy place, we should have gone there and eaten at the bar.

Seems this all comes down to management.


Bummer it was lame again. Thanks for letting me know to pass it up if I ever get crazy and want to spend a lot of money on food. :-)

Thanks! Yeah, what the eff. It wasn't bad, exactly, I just feel like there are better places to spend my hard-earned dollaz. Jeffrey's, where we went on Sunday, for instance.

c'est moi

Enoteca Vespaio for gnocchi! Felt like I was back in Firenze...

YES! Thank you for the reminder - they do wonderful gnocchi!
