You've got to be kidding me about the fries... regular shoe string fries, biggest waste of $10 ++ ever.... Nothing special about them at all.....


Fried in beef tallow. Flavor was extraordinary when I had it.

But the Bullet on the Prime rib sandwich at Tabernacle:



The Caesar salad is 9.5/10 and it was bigger today


Had this finally, was a 5/10 lol. Like any salad I'd have on shabbos.

Had the CHATEAUBRIAND EN COCOTTE  though, that was a 10/10.

Probably best meal I've ever had in a restaurant.

@Yehuda57
I'm pretty confident if you had what I had you'd also rank it 5/10. Must be something different you had, maybe more crunchy stuff or better lettuce or stronger dressing, something...

Presentation of different dishes were all fun, and our waiter was great.

Went last night. First time having the Dinner salad, it might make a difference who makes it for you, but I liked the lunch one better. Was not too crazy about my waitress she had a hearing problem I think. The hostess gave us attitude too (we were late for our reservation but called up and I still dont think its a reason for attitude, either turn us away or serve us the right way, but I digress)

Ill give the salad 7.5/10

Got the Filet and it was as good as last time: 9.5/10

My wife got the surprise which was also top Notch 9.5/10

The Fondue wasnt great 5/10

Appetizer pricing is out of Control

What was worse about the dinner salad?
Probably just luck of the draw on the quality of the lettuce I guess?

Didn't like the homemade marshmallows in the fondue?

Probably depends who makes it. By lunch they make it in the Kitchen so it is really good and they put the correct amount of dressing etc. By Dinner its made by the waitress, why would they have the waitress make it? Makes no sense.

My wife liked the marshmallows, Im not a marshmallow person. The brownies were stale, lots of stuff in there that were not great. The chocolate itself was good. But you are probably better off with the donuts IMO

More experiential for the waiter to tell the story and make it. I didn't think it was any worse.

Might not be a marshmallow person, but you need to appreciate any place that makes their own marshmallows over serving stale Elyon marshmallows. Don't see how that kind of effort can get a 5. If the brownies were stale, you should say something. But yes, rarely will fondue be the best dessert option.
