Although the food was undeniably good, the service was absolutely HORRIBLE. Our waiter was a swindler, plain and simple. He was extremely pushy with his up-selling approach, continuously attempting to mislead us into believing that several items he suggested were included in the price of the meal, when in fact there was a separate charge for each. It felt like we were at a used car sales lot rather than at dinner. Once we firmly declined his add-ons, he ignored our table for the rest of the night.
Enjoy the (delicious) food, but be wary and don't get tricked! Your bill will be through the roof before you know it. :)
Stopped in on a Sunday (since Sonterra Grill was closed), my first time with fondue. I now understand why this fad was left in the 70's. Ordered the 2 person dinner with appetizer (@$98). The waitress was ok, but the food was just horrible and cheap! I can understand paying this price at The Summit, Craftwood, Carlos' Bistro.....since its skillfully prepared and presented with quality ingredients. The entire meal at The Pot (no pun intended)probably cost the restaurant $3.50 to buy and prepare, while being sold at $98 (people actually fall for this?).
Since I stated my first time at fondue I was a little unprepared for the entree portion. Does anyone else find it bad to cross-contaminate the fondue broth with raw seafood and chicken. I don't let raw chicken touch anything (except the sizzling pan, beautifully seasonsed of course) when I prepare it at home, why do it in an establishment?
Last night, December 20,2010, I met my family at Nawlins for a birthday dinner. First, the waitress's stomach was showing, then while standing right next to my 9 year old sister, she lifts her shirt to her boobs to fix it and pull it back down.
Everything we needed had to be requested from napkins to silverware to spoons to refills. The waitress would look at us and totally blow us off when we tried to get her attention! So, we didn't tip her.
She comes charging out of the restaraunt telling us "Don't F@ing come back!" and charging up the sidewalk. When we reported this to the only other employee, he too starts yelling at us and threatened to call security because we didn't tip her.
If you want dinner, at $100, terrible service, and horrible people, then eat there, otherwise don't bother.
Aspen auto clinic is a total ripoff. My daughter went to Aspen on Mark Dabling blvd. for a front end alignment. They told her correctly that she needed a new steering knuckle, however this is the only thing they got correct. They lied to her, stating that she needed also a new hub bearing, camber bolt, bearing seal, when in fact this all is one unit that comes with the steering knuckle.
They quoted her $1005.51 for a new or $777.34 for a used steering knuckle. She knew something was up as this was a ridiculous price. She went to another shop in town and the total cost was $230.45, including the front-end alignment. Aspen had the audacity to charge her $27 for the alignment test when she told them she would forgo the repair.
She spent a fraction of the cost and her car is now driving very nicely. Again, do NOT take your car to Aspen auto clinic unless you want to be chargee 4 times the actual cost of repairs.
Great atmosphere and friendly service, but really overpriced, bland food.
SORRY BUT THAT IS NOT THE BEST HELL NOT EVEN CLOSE,IF THEY GIVE YOU A SALSA OUT OF A JAR AND CHIPS FROM A BAG THATS NOT AUTHENTIC BY NO MEANS.WERE FROM TEXAS AND LA CASITA IS THE ONLY PLACE WE FOUND EVEN HALF WAY CLOSE TO GOOD IN COLORADO PERIOD WHATS WRONG WITH THE PEOPLE HERE WERE'S THE REAL MEXICAN FOOD???
There prices match there quality, have to agree with thedude about this place being ghetto
ok the drinks are way over priced i payed 8 bucks for a drink i usually pay 4 at other down town bars also i used my debit card and the pinged my account for 50 dollars and left it pending for 6 days still pending as i said i only bought one drink for 8 bucks and they have a pending balance in my bank account for 50 that is insane
If it was possible to give zero stars I would have. To say that the owner is rude is the understatement of 2010. He was the rudest, most unprofessional hostile and ill tempered man that I have had the unfortunate occurrence of running into. Part of running a business means public relations and while I think the chef gets away with bad behavior under the guise of that "diner experience". The food quality is absolutely sub par save for the Green Chili. The burrito I ordered was badly cooked, dry and tasted like garbage. The restrooms were filthy and the employees attitude went beyond the diner charisma. Caveat Emptor - You will get better food quality, service and attitude at the Taco Bell 2 blocks down.
I seriously can't believe the Indy gave this a Best Of....
I thought the wait staff were rude, and the food was gross.
Wow, was this horrible. I can't believe they are still in business.
The Ritz is only a disappointing shadow of its former self. It's just sad to be there now. The food has gone downhill, as has the service. Not even a decent bloody mary. Time to go elsewhere.
The first time I went there the food, drinks and service were amazing. That was over a year ago and since then it has gone progressively downhill. The waitresses get orders wrong and bring cold food. You are lucky if you see one of the waitresses every hour or so. I am not going back again.
I've only been here once, and will never go back. Worst "chinese" food I have ever had. I would rather eat at Wok 2000 on Fillmore.
I went to Bhan Thai for lunch, ordered shrimp and chicken pad thai and went to sit and wait. It took FOREVER. I got my food before my iced thai tea (that I had to remind the cashier about) and it smelled like friskes cat food. I was immediately put off, but tried it anyway, and was very disappointed. I only ate a few bites and my stomach was upset for the rest of the day. The shrimp was dry and wasnt deveined. I will NEVER go back there.
The 8th Street location is the worst!!! The first time we ordered from there we ordered a Margarita Pizza and had it delivered. We were told it would be 45 minutes delivery time. We were called at 45 minutes and informed they were behind and it would be another 15 minutes. The pizza actually arrived one hour after that phone call. And we didn't receive a Margarita Pizza, it was a CHEESE PIZZA!!! Plus it was cold. I called the manager and was told I would receive a free 18" Margarita Pizza the next time I called in. We gave them another shot about 30 days later and it took them over a hour and 10 minutes to deliver when we were told it would be 45 minutes and the pizza was cold again!!! At least the pizza resembled a Margarita Pizza a little. We will NEVER eat there again and have told all of our friends about this. We will stick with Papa Murphy's from now on.
I don't know what Deirdre had but 4 bites in, my stomach was in pain.
less than satisfied with Service as well as Product!!wouldn't waste my time even going there to be treated like someone who shouldn't be there!? 2 thumbs way down
They serve absolute garbage in there. I would never ever waste my time or money there again... ever! The only positive thing I can say is they do sit you at a table, in chairs. Although I'm surprised they don't just toss the "Food" on the floor to complete the presentation.
If you want a manager to say FUCK YOU and that you are a BITCH go to Borriello Brothers New York Pizza. These are the most uncouth people I have ever met. Better off at Papa Murphy's or Domino's the management won't even give you a call back after 8 phone calls to them. My $60-$100 a month well spent somewhere else. They don't care about their business because they have so many locations bringing in the $. Hope they fail sooner than later.
