I'll be nice........
In my opinion most restaurants are overpriced, over hyped, over valued and are ego driven, not customer driven.
By most I mean 80% of the restaurants I go to.
I took my wife to Rustica Cucina Italiana last Saturday night. It was ok...but a little pricey.
My wife had an appetizer, I had two glasses of wine,and risotto.
My wife had creme brule.
The total bill with tip (20%) was $75. I think thats steep.
Granted, the setting is wonderful. The wait staff was nice. The waitress reached past me with a carafe of wine to fill my wine glass......but who cares......I'm from South Minneapolis.
Most of the time when you order a glass of wine it comes in a new glass.....not someone reaching across you and dumping it into your glass with a carafe.
It's just a lot of money for a plate of rice and an appetizer.
Granted........two friends I mentioned this to disagreed.....they said its a reasonable price.
But I disagree.
Write it off as a trading loss :)
