The restaurant has lovely decor and location. The appetizers were delicious. The fried artichoke was perfectly fried. The escargot tender and lighly seasoned. The service was very spotty considering there were only 2 tables occupied and it seemed there was service staff that numbered at least 8. The caesar salad that comes with the meal was bland. The bus boy tried to add pepper form a mill that didn't work well. I would have gotten more pepper out of the shaker on the table. When the hot bread and butter was served we had to ask for butter knives. Our entrees were no better. The duck was tough and contained all its bones. The cherry sauce was thick and cloying. It was very hard to cut with the butter knife provided. The prime rib was overcooked and we had to ask for a steak knife. The entrees were served with a garlic mashed potato and sauted squash.., The were not hot when delivered. The serving size was small to say the least (approimately 3/4 of a cup
altogether). All in all a very unsatisfying was to spend ones birthday. The cost of the meal indicated a 4 star restaurant but the experience was 1 star at most. We will probably not return.
Ordinary. NOTHING stands out for the type of restaurant they "claim" to be. Our waitress was definately not interested in waiting on tables or being there for that matter. Menu has many entree choices but few appetizers and soups. The wine list, by the glass is very limited. I ordered the seafood stuffed soft shell crab....."Oh, we don't have that...we can't get fresh ones" Good, I certainly don't want frozen but good idea to tell the customers what is off the menu for the night. Crabmeat suffed mushrooms.....only crab about them was the name....all seasoned bread with MAYBE some seafood stock for taste. The salad was beyond ordinary with no choice of dressings, I had Shrimp Michael....tasty but not 5 star as they claim to be. Others at the table ordered prime rib..........strangest looking prime rib I have ever seen...maybe as thick as my little finger with out the rings of fat that are so characteristic of that cut.....looked more like a rib eye steak....very chewey...side order that accompanied the meat was a spoon and I do not exaggerate ..a spoon of potato and a few slices of sauted veggies...again 5 star ?????. The service was awful with only 5 tables of patrons....we had to constantly go find our waitress...did not offer bread until we asked the bus boy if bread was available. For the price ,no way. There are too many other good eating establishments in Slidell. Palmetto's is excellent also Nathan's. Will not see us there again.
