Mocha Bleu Review (no pics)

This was our 3rd attempt to try Mocha Bleu as they don't take reservations for parties of 2, and are always fully booked.

What wins here is the most important part of any restaurant - the food was great, particularly the french onion soup and the mint chocolate chip milkshake.

However, there were 4 very big downsides:
1) The place was freezing. It was February, there was snow on the ground and you could feel the air conditioner. We were not the only ones wearing coats inside.
2) The cost of several items was higher on the receipt than it was on the menu. Shameful to not update your menu or warn the customer that you haven't updated the prices yet.
3) Tip was not only mandatory and included on your receipt, but it was 20%! Everyone has their own tipping strategy/mindset, but personally 20% is when a waiter/ess goes above and beyond.
4) Desserts, which sound super yummy, are all pareve. I don't get it. A dairy restaurant has the unique ability to do amazing things with desserts - starting with the basic of all - desserts taste better when they're dairy!! And guess what? They're not good. Worse than even fleishig restaurants. I couldn't believe it.
while their food might be decent their service is like what u get by the TSA ( they don't give a hoot) i've been there many times every time it was a diff issue, ive witness the owner/manger put up a fight with one of the customer saying that the food wasn't good, a diff time the waiter ran after me for 2 blocks because i forgot to add the tip (on purpose!).

I guess that was before it was mandatory.

I've actually tried to go there twice, and their poor service has prevented it from happening both times - once, I called them and was told last seating was one time (maybe 8:45?) but when I got there at 8:19pm (realt imte based on my cell phone), they told me last seating was 8:20, and according to their clock it was after 8:20.

Too many other options to bother with that.

I'm going to Nobo for the first time this week.... I know that several of the menu items are peoples favorites here on Dansdeals. 

1.  Is there anything on the menu that is "nothing special"?  I want to make sure to avoid such an item for the first visit.
2.  Are the lamb riblets significantly better than the other appetizers?  I really enjoy sausage & peppers but if the riblets are really that good...
3.  Are the steaks anything close to Mike's Bistro?  The prices are not so much less.  Looking at the 20oz rib eye...

Thanks.

TBH I thought Mike's steaks were good but probably overpriced by 20%.
