Sleek, snazzy, cool

Lure + Till dazzles, stumbles

The food was mighty impressive. Bold, expressive flavors without the mask of over saucing, over cheesing, or overcooking. Textures and flavors were beautifully balanced, ingredients spoke for themselves.

Love that you include bathroom cleanliness!

I'm beginning to think we should start a local website to shame businesses by posting their bathroom photos...

With all the minor things wrong here, and then looking at the plates ... barely half-full of food ... just seems like a status thing to go there and get ripped off ... have fun!

After being dissed at the outset by being dispatched to the loser table, I'd have walked. Perhaps you'd have to -- if you hadn't had a review to write.

Glad we, i.e., those of us who may not be among the BPs, have been warned.

Personally, I think the bathroom warning is enough to put anyone off, no matter how great the food.

Other than that, I think a person might want to it a month, maybe the restaurateurs will read this review, and clean up their act.

After all, in SillyConniving Valley, any slouch in dirty sweats could be a billionaire!

So, where in the article was the bathroom warning? I was surprised to have missed it, re-read the article and still didn't see it. Was it only in the printed version?

To the snooty employees at Front of the House:
Someday YOU will be old...or even middle-aged. Apparently you want some "eye candy" of young neuvo-riche pseudo Hollywood seated at your front in view of passers-by.
I would have walked at the discourtesy and unprofessionalism shown by the person(s) doing the seating that day...
And yes - remember that David Packard drove a regular type car, so don't go only by shallow appearances as to extent of power or wealth.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
