realized I never posted a followup...had an anniversary dinner at C2. The manager was aware of the special occasion, and sat us in a section with a waiter in training...at 7pm....on a Saturday night. It had to have been only his 2nd night waiting tables, tops.
He started out the service by butchering the cork on a $120 bottle of wine we had brought in. This was about 15 minutes after I asked him to open it ASAP so it could breathe a bit before we drank it with our meal. Spotty service throughout the meal, and (this is the best) as he took a plate to be boxed so we could take with us, he proceeded to use his crumbcatcher to deftly swipe all of the crumbs from the table directly on to my piece of left over steak. He very promptly returned my steak to the table in a box, crumbs on top and all.
We hung around the front of the restaurant to speak with the manager about our disappointment, but he was too busy laughing and joking with the kitchen staff in the back, even as he made eye contact with us. After 5 minutes, we left, not wanting to ruin the rest of our evening.
To top it off, the restaurant apparently forgot to charge us a corkage fee and an appetizer, and decided it would be perfectly fine to add that on to the charge slip, after we had signed for the bill. It took us 3 weeks to straighten out the mess because the restaurant fought us on the matter.
High-end, I think not. It fits the entire feeling of the place. In general, cache creek tries, but it's just not quite the high-end resort it is aiming to be.
