We were also able to eat at a restaurant (work fed me the rest of the time). We ate at 230 Forest Ave. I found it overrated. The thing with expensive food is that you expect it to be better. If I spend $24 on stroganoff it better be better than the $5 microwaveable pos I buy at the grocery store. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. The only thing making it fantastic is the truffle oil and I can live without that.
The seats are also super close together. You might as well make friends with the people sitting next to you. It’s an extremely loud in there and you have to yell to talk to the person sitting across from you. You will be eavesdropping and people will be listening to your conversations.
Besides that, the hostesses are snobs. They don’t like you. It’s a privilege to eat there and they’re deigning to let you in. Also, don’t bother asking them for directions. They don’t know how to get there. You’re better off asking the hotel staff. The hostess told me to get a cab. I’m sorry if I don’t want to pay $15 to go a mile. And it was only a 20 minute walk. More than easy enough for me.
And the worst part was that the food gave me a stomach ache. I didn’t sleep all night. I thought my tummy would explode. I wouldn’t go back there again.
I think the problem with isolated resort areas is that the food is overpriced and more than mediocre. And that is definitely the problem with this place. Skip it!
