Looking forward to reading in more detail what you ordered.

When the manager came to speak to me he offered me a dessert. Wait I have not even had an entree. No thank you my check please. They did take care of my appetizer.

My hope is that they work out their issues and execution improves.

One other thing and now it makes sense. The table next to me said as they were leaving. "Good luck getting you meal."
This is interesting to me because though this is not a scientific sampling at all, out of two opening night reviews in a row here, they match with our past experiences over the years at CA Grill. In general, our experiences have been great half of the time and not-so-great the other half (mostly in regards to waitstaff). I am hopeful the timing issues will evolve, though it's possible that they may have set themselves up for "timing" failure with certain dishes. Taking into consideration your timing issues, how would you rate the service and food quality? Will you be posting a review?

pretty positive spin (not surprisingly) so getting some "real world" takes as well is good

Does anyone know how does the new menu work with the Dining Plan ?
Do you have to chose one from the Entrees menu and a desert plus the beverage ? Does it include sushi ?

Thanks

Calling it a review (DFB's term) is a bit of a stretch. It's content from the preview/junket carried over to a second post.

yeah, it's just a larger story covering that - It's definitely more of a review of the restaurant / the changes, vs. a review of a meal there

She did say she wasn't too impressed with the dessert sampler (well, 2 of the 3 components) so that was one negative

Other interesting thing I saw was her say that the former wine room is now decored like the rest of the restaurant but is available fore people who would like a quieter meal there

I can't believe no one has posted a review of it yet. I was so hoping for a live post last night I want to see if the Kazan Roll is the same or changed at all... also what the Duck In All Its Glory really looks like plated... I've only seen pictures of the giant board full of meats and I doubt you get all that for an appetizer!

I am interested in knowing if the Kazan Roll is still an appetizer on the Deluxe Dinning Plan?

Yes, I'm interested in that too! I've seen two different versions of the menu and one had it listed as an entree (which I really hope is not true)...
