Our food was dry, tasteless and the table next to us has a similarly bad experience. They complained to the waitstaff who pretty much shrugged it off. They refused to pay and walked out. The waitress said something like “not again”
Three people in our party of 4 had the salmon Wellington. Supposed to be European eggs (light, buttery, fluffy), salmon, and hollandaise sauce wrapped in puff pastry. But, they had microwaved it and the puff pastry was chewy, the eggs over cooked and dry, and the salmon was over cooked. It was inedible. The hollandaise was chunky and more like an egg chutney—disgusting. The manager said that because we were seated toward the end of brunch, they had to microwave the Wellington. It was prepared earlier in the day and they weren’t going to make new. And it cost us $100 PER PERSON. One person in our party had the steak and it was over cooked and dry. They brought her a new steak. But they refused to do anything about the Wellington. They offered no discount and said that brunch was ending soon so they weren’t going to make us new food. It was laughably absurd hiw they just didn’t care that our food was inedible.
About the “castle”, it’s a large house with shoddy workmanship. The original wood is beautiful, but then there’s the ameture upgrades and shoddy workmanship and cheap upgrades. They act like it’s a real gem of a castle with a French chef. But it is actually like a large interesting home wth a lot of cheap looking do-it-yourself finish out, and probably a self taught cook who happens to be French.
They oversell themselves as something they’re not. It’s as if they assume their patrons are all uncultured and won’t notice that it’s not a nice “castle” and certainly not good food.
