Lunch at Petrossian?

Has anyone had lunch at Petrossian lately. I went there many years ago, and it was festive and a great bargain if unadventurous. But I have recently a chorus of criticisms, especially about the food (both quality and quantity).
Any comments, please?

  1. I invited friends there for brunch a year or more ago and the experience was only deeply embarrassing. They couldn't get the food out of the kitchen, and then the order was wrong. The Maitre D' handled the whole thing badly - lots of excuses, but not an extra drink or anything remotely gracious. By then it probably would't have mattered anyway. The waiter just disappeared. It was the first time in 30 years that I left zero tip and wrote the reason on the credit card slip. Frankly, they should have let us go without a charge at all. I swore I'd never go back and I haven't.
