We found the restaurant by accident and were excited to make reservations. Our maitre d' was very personable and took extra time helping with food and wine selections. He truly contributed to the positive aspects of the evening. The waiter was another story; he was infatuated with the majority of the other patrons which were Muslim. We were ignored by him the whole evening. Let's be clear, a waiter should cater to his best customers - that's fine. However, the measure of a great restaurant is their ability (conscientious decision?) to treat their newest patron like their best patron. Unfortunately, the wait staff doesn't subscribe to this proposition. This is particularly unfortunate because the food was excellent! Pricey, but worth the money.
So, either be prepared to be treated like a second class citizen or bring your entire entourage, make them aware that you will spend excessively on courses you don't even eat or care about and be ready for the waiters to make absolute FOOLS of themselves kissing up to you. Anyone of any real means, experience or culture can tell the difference. I just wanted to be treated with a little respect, not royalty, but then again, I come from a country that doesn't acknowledge any form of royalty. Guess which one that is.
