Did the Dine-out at the Keg with a few buddies after class.

Service was terrible, but it's to be expected since alot of people are doing the Dine-outs.


The mashed-patatos were overly dry and quite bland, while my steak was rather tough to chew and over-cooked even though I had asked for a medium rare.

No need to post photos, but the food were all really mediocre. The Keg used to be really good, but IMO, their quality is sagging.

Food 6/10
Service 5/10

The Water Street Cafe is a tourist trap.

A couple posters, including myself have mentioned already. And BcrDukes just mentioned - water street is a tourist trap.

How did it go? I am going this Friday and didn't realize that they are participating in dine out. I hope they still serve their regular menu.

We kept our resos at cork and fin and maybe I should thanks everyone for making it seem like crap cause I had super low expectations which in turn made it seem not as terrible. Food was average, service was a zero (waitress even stepped on my bag handle when she was pointing out that my bag had fell...was kinda pissed bout that) but not as bad as I imagined! LOL!!

Oysters were good..but then again how can you fuck up something like raw seafood?

Bistro Pastis, Pied a Terre, Cafe Crocodile, and Le Faux Bourgeois are my recommendations for French.

The mushroom soup on their DoV menu is really good, their apple crumble not so much.
