Restaurant Impossible - Maple Tree Cafe - CLOSED

Maple Tree Cafe Restaurant Impossible

Chef Robert Irvine visits the Maple Tree Cafe in Las Vegas, Nevada, to help Ashley, who has no experience at all in the restaurant industry, she is overpowered by the staff and she is supported in the restaurant by family members, who also have no experience in working in a restaurant.

 The food was inconsistent, over seasoned one minute and under seasoned the next and the  service was poor. Robert made Ashley fire all of her family members and rehire those who deserved it as a business lesson and he also renovated the dining room and introduced a new menu. 

What Happened Next? 

Yelp Reviews after Robert visit were mixed and seem range from very good to very bad. Within a few weeks, sales had more than doubled and that she has kept most of Robert's menu including the popular Cuban Sandwich. Ashley was stepping up as manager and the staff are responding with less criticism. The restaurant closed in October 2013.
