Really? Food was amazing, service was great...what don't you like? We had salmon that wasn't good and they just took it off the bill but everything else was very good
the new menu is unexciting, it literally took us 10 minutes to figure out what to order. the old menu had much more interesting and original items.

the service was a bit too ghetto for me such as when clearing the appetizer plate they took the dirty forks off the plate and back on to the napkin/table

they didnt get the temperature even close to right with the steak

among other issues

it would seem they changed management

That's crazy they didn't clear the dirty forks...and yes I did have to tell them to bring extra plates and new forks for the fish but nothing unusual...They said they keep changing around the menu but whatever I had was very good....

I had just the opp. They cleared off the plates that were just used for bread, and gave everyone new silverware.

granted the second time i was there wasnt nearly as good as the first time, but it certainly wasnt what you describe, imo

Let me give you one small taste of what our experience at La Pavee was like: my wife went to use the ladies' room, and found it filthy - there was literally excrement smeared all over the place. She went to tell an employee, who just shrugged and said "oh, so use the men's room". No apology, no attempt to get the place clean, no attempt to even lock it so that no one else goes in and gets disgusted by it - nada.

The rest of our experience there was along the same lines: they sucked, but more importantly, didn't even seem to be bothered by their inferiority. There seemed to be zero interest, all across the board, in trying to make a good impression or trying to make the customer happy.

Ditto.
I used Ofir 0573148331. Nice guy. Baal Teshuva; by the time she's reached her destination she may know all of the Nach, Nach, Nachman Torah. Large vehicle, but as was said, I haven't seen a nice car doing the route.
