It's nothing new.  I found fault with Antoine's 45 years ago, both in 
quality and service.

I have also found the superior in some very strange places, one being the 
Coronado Inn in Arroyo Seco, just outside of Taos on the ski basin road.  A 
superb cook and an old school European maitre d', who was making sure the 
service was superb.  We had a fabulous dinner with venison in pepper cream 
sauce and rack of lamb.  Unfortunately, I think it went away during the 
recession in the early 90's.
