You need to work on your arithmetic. I wonder what your golf scores look like.

Sorry, the thought of that large prime rib clouded my mind.

The only time I notice someone's food at another table is when it arrives, appears to be several scoops of ice cream covered in chocolate and nuts and whipped cream, and topped off with one or more cherries. Usually 2 or more spoons to enjoy it with...and it sure didn't look too "tough" to eat to me.

Honestly those prime ribs looked like they were 4-6 ozs- they would be good for a small steak sandwich--1/2" thick too

We were at Mezza Luna on Valentine's Day with a 5pm reservation. Normally we have Italian food there but it was a nice prime rib special on a dinner for two. Both of our pieces of meat were cooked as ordered and very tender. It was very crowded and our waitress, Jessica, handled her tables with professionalism and lightheartedness. She teased us by saying "now keep gazing into each other's eyes while I'm gone". Sorry if someone else's meal was not up to par. We enjoyed our evening.

Why are we so critical of other peoples opinions?

I agree....it seems that no one can ever voice a a negative without being lambasted. I am seeing it on every thread from restaurants to high prices on new homes to horrible hospital experiences. The same people jumping all over anyone's different opinion. What's the deal here? I don't see much tolerance for differences.

Perhaps the couple next to you ordered their prime rib extra well done.

They did not , we conversed about their choice, I was going to order the Osso Bucco-but changed my mind (after seeing their SPECIAL)--The prime rib in my opinion looked like it was presliced & kept under a warming lamp--a common practice for mass served food.

I share the view with those posters who supported the OP's right to make such an observation.

If the meal served was as the OP described indeed even given a low expectation it should have not been served. Many places take pride in the prime they serve. In fact based on the OP's description the golden corral far exceeds this restaurants quality

Restaurant discussion is always a dichotomy because opinion = expectation and some are more readily satisfied than others....fair enough Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Honestly I have not read or posted in this section in a long time.
Everyone has their own tastes and who am I to say what you like or dislike.

For me I have been to Mezza Luna twice and also tried their pizza.

I will not be going back.
