The Anaheim White House Complaint - Bad Politicians at the Anaheim White House
ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA -- We dine out at a fancy restaurant 4 to 6 times a year. One of the restaurants we usually choose for steak is The Dal Rae Steakhouse located at 9023 E. Washington Blvd., near the intersection of Rosemead Blvd., in Pico Rivera where the food, the service and the comfortable surroundings are without a doubt... outstanding.
Since Beef Wellington was not on the Dal Rae menu, and I was in the mood to have beef wellington, after asking some of our friends.. The Anaheim White House was recommended.
Not to take any chances I called the Anaheim White House restaurant on Sunday, Nov. 4th 2007 at 3PM in the afternoon to ask if they did indeed have Beef Wellington on the menu.."oh yes" the gentleman told me.. so I asked and he told me what came with it etc...and sooo...we made a reservation for that evening, got dressed up and off we went.
After being seated in what seemed to me overly ostentatious surroundings, I searched and searched the menu for the beef wellington. Much to our surprise we learned from the waiter that they did not serve beef wellington.
Now you tell me what you would have done? There is nothing worse then being conned. I have had this happen before with dept. stores that claim to have something I ask for or promise they provide services by telephone and then not have the merchandise or the service available when I get there. Trying to sell me what I did not ask for is not good business as far as I am concerned. I don;t like being conned.
I think they were shocked when we stood up and left the famous Anaheim White House . I suppose most people would settle for something else on their menu after making such an effort at dressing, driving, valet parking and being just plain hungry by that time..I don't care what movie stars have eaten there or how great a chef they have. I feel sorry for anyone who is willing to allow this kind of non-sense or be intimidated by anyone in any restaurant or store.
We immediately called the Dal Rae and yes we had to wait another 1 1/2 hours for dinner..but it was well worth the trip, as well as, the wait. I came to find out that if I give the Dal Rae 2 days notice I can have that Beef Wellington, fine wine, scrumptious dessert and excellent service by the warm & caring people I've grown accustomed to.
