This was a first visit to this restaurant, having avoided the long line-ups at its previous location. For four of us, we waited about 20 minutes on a Sunday closer to noon.
I liked the interior; it was casual and the mismatched chandeliers helped create a great atmosphere. We sat in a booth, but really, they were not made for 4 people; maybe school bus seats, meant for kids. I guess sitting nearest to the kitchen doesn't help either, especially with the wait, when one notices all the food coming out but not ours!
Menu is extensive, with great titles to describe them. Once we ordered, we waited and waited. Drinks came, but I really did not care for the coffee. With a full restaurant one would think the coffee would taste fresh, but to me it didn't and even lots of milk/sugar did not make it more palatable. A smoothie ordered by one of my party was deemed very good.
Now, on to the food. I don't even remember what I had, except that it was some version of a benny and had artichokes in it. Bland, bland, and more bland. The potatoes seemed like last night's leftovers, and while no one needs more fat in their diet, these were downright mushy and gross. Sure, they had their skins on them, but that wasn't enough to save them from mediocrity. The bread was not toasted, so soft and unappealing. And the proscuitto was paper thin, one extremely thin slice. Everything I ate seemed soft and mushy.
Not one member of my party said ONE word about their meals, and we all had different items. Very telling. The friendly service didn't balance out the less than stellar food.
