I'll give the salad bar 3 stars. It's average, and the greens were fresh. Basically, no comment good or bad. Likewise the sodas were wet and cold and tasted fine. However, the entire restaurant still has a weird off-putting smell. They need to change mop water or something.
We ordered a steak medium rare. It arrived about 15 seconds shy of well-done. Ok, that sort of stuff happens, I get it. We showed it to the manager, and his comment was "There's a little pink in there." Ok, buddy - I'll grant you, there was a paper-thin area right in the middle that was light grey, and with the proper lighting and some scientific apparatus you might have detected a warmer hue. But seriously - we aren't blind. It's a well-done steak.
We ordered a "Monty's Hero" which is described as having bread "...delivered fresh daily from a local baker and exclusively made for our restaurant." Ummm... no. It was quite stale. I'm a bread guy, I love the stuff. I took one bite and that was it. I threw all the bread away and ended up just eating cold-cuts with a knife and fork. I pointed that out to the manager as well. Again, he insisted the bread was fresh, just as advertised. Again - I'm looking right at it. I can crack it in half.
There were a couple rounds of discussion back and forth. It's clear that we live in two completely different realities. I'm sorry, but you can't convince me that stale bread is fresh and a well-done steak is medium rare. This is a restaurant, not a Scientology convention. The conversation was over when I told him directly that he could go blow his smoke up somebody elses... and then he spun on his heel and left without comment. We didn't see him again.
In summary, the manager is delusional. We paid full price, and I tipped 50% to make the point - we are locals, we tip well, and we aren't coming back.
