What a disappointment. After a symphony event, we decided to give Duck City another chance. We have been there other times in the past and were always disappointed. We hoped that this time might be different. From the pretentious staff that thinks they're highly knowledgeable, to the dirty wine glasses, to the plates that need to be replaced, to the kitchen staff that parades through the dining room in dirty white jackets, to the almost inedible food, this night went from bad to worse. My food critic French husband just wanted to try the duck breast.....but no luck, Guess what....no duck at duck city. How can one run out of the signature dish?? A quickly substituted beef dish was well cooked but was swimming in fat along with vegetables equally saturated in this fat. The portion size was ridiculous...his meal. Looked like an amount for a family of five. My food, promised to be great by the wait staff was the Thai chicken with peanut sauce. What arrived looked like funnel cakes...no one warned me that this chicken would be a breaded monstrosity! As for the puddle of ooze around the plate that was supposed to be "peanut sauce?, it was a thick gravy with a hint of peanut butter dragged through it. What was supposed to be a beautifully plated dish was a disaster. I sent it back.....I won't even comment on the fried rice.
Our friend's steak "medium well" was like a little black overcooked brick on her plate. Her artichoke stuffed with blue cheese was an afterthought that arrived late and was hastily thrown on her plate.
What's sad to think is that some Quad Cities residents find this to be "fine dining".....I tell them to expand their world. THIS IS NOT FINE DINING!

It is hard to believe that such a great restaurant exists in the Quad Cities.
This restaurant could shine in New York, Chicago, San Francisco or, L. A.
The chef trained at la Varenne in Paris and his son (the new chef) trained at the Cordon Bleu in Paris. The food and service are incredible and the prices are truly reasonable.
Very friendly, and wait until you meet Melissa. A must for any Quad City visitor!!
