Just like many of the reviews here, we decided to try Timbre Restaurant for DOV. We were impressed by the menu and the price ($15).
I called ahead of time to ask if this was a child-friendly restaurant since we would have one baby and one toddler with us. I was told yes.
When we arrived, there were no high chairs available, so we had to juggle the children on our laps, but that's not the part that made us balk at this experience. The fact that our three course meal took over 2 hours was the beginning. We all ordered the appetizer soup, which all came cold and the waiter took away my boyfriend's soup before it was finished (and yes, he didn't ask before wisking the soup away). Next, our main courses. My sister had the wild mushroom ravioli which was fine, except for the fact that there were literally 4 pieces of regular sized ravioli on the lonely looking plate. For that amount, I would have served the ravioli on a tea saucer so at least the portion looked larger.
I had the steak, which was good, but was a teeny tiny wee lit' piece.
Finally, all of our desserts (cheesecake) was again in the teeny tiny wee fashion and FROZEN. I couldn't even put my fork in it! It was amazing.
Several times we asked the waiters to bring our food quicker but we were simply ignored. We would have been normally just enjoyed the long dinner but the problem was the children. Any parent would know that it is difficult to entertain babies and toddlers for two hours sitting in the same spot.
Needless to say, never ever EVER again.
