Good Mid-Priced Restaurants with Trained, Professional Waitstaff
I am a fairly regular customer at Bick's and and it is certainly more of a midpriced place than Tilth or certainly than the excellent Le Gourmand. The waitstaff is certainly professional with at least one waitress who has been there more than ten years. I always find it a reliable and comfortable place to enjoy an evening relaxing with good food and service.

We went for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and our server was not at all up to par for this level of restaurant. Inattentive, not very knowledgeable about the food, and opinionated / self-righteous. Very annoying.
On the other hand, another server who assisted was very warm yet professional, extremely knowledgeable about the food, etc. Same goes for the maitre'd.
I guess we got the weakest link that night.
