  1. We were there late last year and I had the prime rib. Pretty mediocre all the way around. Green Goddess dressing didn't live up to the nostalgia of the idea of having it and the atmosphere seemed a bit dismal. There was really nothing to make me want to go back. If you do end up going I'll be interested in reading your review.

    1. The Buggy Whip is a fine local restaurant (I live within walking distance) but it is not really (IMO) a destination restaurant. I enjoy eating there - But keep in mind that when I go I am not expecting to get a Spago or similar experience. I find the older looking, darker, red booth environment comfortable and generally have a relaxing dinner. (And I like the green goddess dressing).

      1. Overpriced and mediocre since the dawn of man. You'll certainly get the old-school vibe if that appeals to you. I agree with bllrdfarm to one extent-- it's not worth going out of your way to visit.

        1. Just below average all away around.
