this past saturday we intended to "celebrate" our anniversary with my wife's parents at a restaurant we had not frequented in a couple of years - Redwoods......unfortunately, the dinner turned out to be anything but celebratory.....let's just focus on the main courses - duck did not taste like duck, but was very tough - the scallops were not seasoned, rather bland - the pork loin was just not tasty - and my dish, a snapper special, well i still can't figure out what it tasted like, but i can tell you it was awful .......now sometimes one out of four meals might be unacceptable, but four out of four is a debacle......to top it all off, our waiter was not attentive and rather snide when we mentioned that the food was below the standards of a quality restaurant......i expressed my regrets to the manager and he responded in shock, but the place was more than half empty in primetime on a saturday nite, so perhaps the "word" is out......the evening was not a total disaster as we made our way to a wonderful gelato spot on beach drive for delicious deserts......i'd be interested to know if anyone else has dined recently at redwoods - as for us, well, i think you know where we will not be eating again!
