Came here for dine out. Was told when I made reservations that they were VERY busy but could squeeze us in. Then when two pople were waiting 5 minutes to be seated(on time) someone from the restaurant called the person who made the reservations and was 5 minutes late, to say tehy were very busy and were we coming? The place stayed 1/3 to 1/2 empty all night. Just hype?
Waitress was ok, service too slow when you wanted it and too fast when you didn't. I was shocked at the skimpy portion sizes! Soup was served in one of those HUGE plate bowls but the soup was little more than a stain in the bottom. The Kale appetizer was small but enjoyed.
Entrees(Large plates they call them) ,- mushroom steak - laughably small! Smaller than an appy at most places. Person did not enjoy it either. Crepes were good and perogies I think were the best - actually very good - yet strangely underseasoned and salted. The waiter had brough salt and pepper to thoe table saying "just in case" but we wouldn't need it. He was wrong. We needed both and LOTS of it. Does vegan food have to be bland?
Now to the desserts - The trifle I think was served in basically a large shot glass - what a joke, The lemon cannolis were the smallest cannolies I have ever seen in my life! But the lemon filling was delish. It was suupposed to have a "lavender coulis" or something but I did not taste any of that.
Wine was fairly expensive and VERY VERY VERY small serving sizes in VERY large glasses. Not a fan of that,.
Perhaps the portion sizes explain why most vegans I know are skinny. But, if those are their regular portion sizes for the menu prices and not scaled down for dine out, it' s crazy. Two members of our party stopped for burgers on the way home, so some poor cow died and the purpose of the restaurant was defeated because they didn't want to serve enough food. WE would not be back dine out or otherwise. ANd the palce was SOOO dark you couldn't read the menus or maybe so you couldn't see all the anemic tempeh and tofu?
