A little history. This building, located on North Pekin's Twin Lakes, formerly housed "The Chateau on the Lake" restaurant. The Chateau, in it's heyday, was upscale eatery in every sense of the word. A succession of eateries have located there since The Chateau closed and the building, food and service steadily declined. Sonny Asani acquired the grounds and obviously spent a ton of money restoring the facility. It opened as Sazani"s Steak & Pasta House in August 2014. Décor and ambiance is well above average and brought back fond memories from days gone by. Tonight, Feb 14th, we and 3 other couples made our first visit. Ordering was from the Valentines Day menu. Our waiter was pleasant, efficient and helpful. Even though this was going to be a busy night for them, he stressed that there was no hurry and could linger as long as we wanted. He took orders and refilled drinks without making us feel rushed. Complementary breadsticks (brought at the same time as the drinks) were, in my opinion, dry. There was no spread available at the table and we had to request butter. Salads were plain (lettuce, a cucumber slice and a tomato wedge) with dressing on the side No croutons, cheese, onion crackers. or other extras. For the entrée my wife had the 12-14 oz. Black and Blue New York ($22.99) and I had the 8 oz. New York with 3 stuffed shrimp ($19.99). We each had a baked potato with butter. Her meat was gristly and neither hers or mine was terribly tasty. The uniform grey color indicated (to me at least) that a grill had not been used in cooking. Just a personal note, but I did not feel that the value of the meal equaled the cost ($51.00 before tip). While no one at the table complained officially, none of them gave their meals high marks either. In fact, the one person who had ordered the lobster tail and fillet mingon combination ($28.99) noted that the 6 oz.fillet seemed laughably small and appeared to be dwarfed by the 6 oz.lobster tail. Three people ordered different types of cake for dessert and all three voiced the same opinion. Every slice of cake was dry. Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention the table was covered in red colored PAPER! Really? PAPER? One of my fellow diners was wondering where the crayons were. Unfortunately, I remember things the way they were and this didn't measure up. I guess I won't be going back any time soon. Dang! I had high hopes.
Can I give this dump ZERO stars? New Years Eve dinner and they didn't have the balls to tell us when reservations were made that all they were serving was their buffet. And it was terrible!!! Cold food had no flavor, raw prime rib, just a real joke. The waiter could barely understand and speak english. I will continue to tell everyone I know how terrible this place is. Frankly, I wouldn't feed this shit to my dog.
Poor service poor management. Never have a party here!!! We had some cancellations and decreased our reservations because of sickness. I then received a rude phone call the next day to tell me they had asked the people who were able to make it for more than they were told they would need to pay. I was told if we had ordered off the menu this wouldn't be a problem. It was buffet style only because we were given no other choice. Between the poor service and unfriendly unaccommodating management I will never set foot in the Pekin Sezani's again!!!RUDE!!!!
