We got a gift certificate to go to Mr. Stox in Orange County so we decided to use them! We arrived at 11:50 and were seated. We finally got to order our drinks at 12:20. OK so far but we ordered a $100 bottle of Champagne. It never came and finally at 12:35 it arrived with an excuse that someone had to unlock the locker. We are now 45 minutes into this disaster! We ordered our meal… veggies for Sue and a seared ahi tuna for me! Ok, nope! It was almost 1:05 (30 additional minutes) when the meal arrives. We are irritated but fairly forgiving. We ordered a chocolate souffle because we know it takes time.
We tried the meal and it was also a pooper! Sue’s “pasta” was so dry we gather all of the butter we had to add some moisture to it. The seared ahi had zero taste… I mean ZERO! I didn’t finish it. They collected the remains at 1:25!
They hauled this away and we were patiently awaiting the souffle which failed to show up. It’s now 1:35 so we just waited and waited and finally someone shows up and says “Sorry, we forgot to order the souffle”. We were so pissed off we asked for our bill (for the champagne) and left.
Three minutes short of two hours for a horrid visit to what we expected to be a first class restaurant we demanded the bill and left… Yuch!
