I am looking to get Ferme des Peupliers yogurt. Ideally in Toronto, but I'll take anywhere in Canada and at worst a place to order into Canada.
This is a classic wine and dine scenario. What you would expect to see from a Bay St/Wall St. type of wine and dine.
I need recommendations for the best food and best fun. Fun is defined by great atmosphere, good decor, and hot women.
If you want parallels I'm thinking Cavalli and Buonanotte in Montreal. What are the Toronto equivalents?
Need it for this Friday. Suggestions fellow Chowhounders?
I went to Prince Sushi for dinner on Tuesday March 17. After hearing reviews about how this may be the best all you can eat sushi restaurant in Mississauga, I wanted to check it out and took my mother out with me.
First off, to be fair. I have to say that the selection is definitely above average. Soft shell crab was nice as is the selection of different salads (although one salad that listed cucumber as an ingredient should be renamed cuz all they gave us was cucumber and all the expensive ingredients like seafood and seaweed looked like they just fell into the bowl by accident).
But the service was horrible. Here's what happened in chronological order:
1. We spotted an interesting looking dish at another table. I flagged our waitress down and asked her what it was. Her response? "I don't know". Then she left. WTF?
2. We ordered Saba (mackerel) sashimi twice and never received it. When they came with a last call (more on that later) I asked about it and THEN the waitress told me that they didn't have that today. How about telling me that sometime over the last hour instead of simply ignoring my TWO orders for it?
3. The female owner of the shop approached the table beside us and informed them that they were now seated for 2 hrs and that they were already over the 1.5 hour time limit. She had a rude tone which prompted me to look around. I spotted at least 2 of the same tables that were empty with no one waiting at the door. Why was she pushing people out the door when there was no one waiting? Ever heard of customer service? Anyway, the clients mentioned that they weren't informed of the time limit and were given no warning. The owner lady responded with, "Is this your first time here?". First off, how is that a suitable response to a CUSTOMER? What I do know for sure was it will be their last. Anyway, the clients did say that it was. The owner lady then followed up with, "well the 1.5 hr limit is listed on the menu" as if this was an argument that she had to win. I understand the customer doesn't always have to be right, but come on lady. No one is waiting and all you're doing is pissing of customers who up to that point were actually enjoying their experience at your restaurant.
4. Last call. 15 minutes before the end of our 1.5 hr session we got our last call (note that at that time the place had about 6 empty tables with no one waiting). This was also the time when I first learned that they didn't have any saba.
5. After ordering our ice cream dessert, we asked our waitress if there were any other types of dessert (desserts weren't listed on the menu). Our waitress curtly said, "NO". And then left. WTF?
6. While eating our ice cream. Our bill appeared. I didn't ask for it. I guess the six empty tables were lonely and they really wanted a seventh empty table to feel better.
7. When picking up our bill, the waitress spilled my tea across the table. This resultant splash spilled off the table and onto my mother's pants. Now a mistake like this is understandable. What was not understandable was how the waitress then proceeded to promise napkins to clean up, left, calmly cleared her tray of all the stuff she was carrying, THEN retrieve napkins and come back. I'm thinking that if our waitress had water spilled all over her pants, she would want a means to clean up ASAP. Not after someone had the time to neatly put everything away first.
This was my first and last experience at Prince Sushi. It seems obvious that their success has gone to their heads and they are now being jerks. Good luck to them for keeping it up in the future if they continue to treat their customers like crap.
