Sur...what a disappointment!
We went out to Sur in WeHo last night with 4 friends and what a disappointment. It was our first time and we had really high hopes. The interior was beautiful and the tables in a very nice, intimate setting but the food was less than memorable. I had the Lobster cakes and they were comparable to the hushpuppies I would get at Long John Silvers. Others at the table had the beet salad, soups and calamari which they said were good but were disappointed by the lack of imaginative options. For entree I had the lamb chops with carrots and brussel sprouts. Although I ordered it medium rare, it came out medium. The waiter dropped the plate and ran off not to be seen again for probably close to 30 minutes. I would have sent it back if I could have only found someone to give it to. 2 others at the table had the veal and said it was ok at best. No one ordered dessert because the food was so iffy. The service was marginal and more like something you'd see at Denny's. We orderd our food and litterally within minutes the appetizers arrived. After eating the appetizers and the final dish was cleared, our entrees arrived within seconds. So much for a relaxing dinner. We were so looking forward to trying Sur because we'd never been there before but I can say we'll never go back. Food comparable to fast food, overcooked food, rushed service....why spend the money here when there's so many other good places to go in LA.
