Went today for lunch at the new Moon Restaurant and we were the only people there. First, the good news- The waiter, Caesar, was excellent. Very friendly and service oriented.
Unfortunately, the food was very far below the waiter quality. The briskit was served as a chunk about 1" thick, rather than thinly sliced. It was as tough as a non tenderized shoe and was inedible. The hamburger was only fair and was much smaller than a quarter pounder.

In fairness, it was explained that the chef was off and they did change the briskit for another item. Still, a very poor first impression and an unlikely return visit.

My wife and I went there the other night. Like the previous post we thought that Caesar was great. The food, a cheese burger and fries and an order of chile fries was a big disappointment.
Would we go back? Probably not in the near future.
Caesar did say that the regular chef was not in today.

When the chef is absent, a restaurant should close unless the other kitchen employees are qualified to prepare his recipes.

Exactly. It sounds a little like this chef might be absent permanently.

I do think they should, rather than just 'could', since they would get fewer criticisms for being closed off schedule, than for having their meals off target. Reputation is everything!

What a shame. They started off so good during their dry run. It seems things have declined since "officially" opening last Sunday.

We went there yesterday late afternoon - excellent pulled pork, chili/cheese fries (chili without beans) - Cesar's good service, a win all around.

That's good to hear as my two experiences there during their "soft opening" have also been positive.
