here are the "finer" points of our evening at felico's, needless to say, we will NEVER be back and advise anyone to STAY AWAY FROM FELICO'S.
-server brought 4 wine glasses to a table for 7 - she poured the sample glass and then left. we had to ask for additional glasses and had to pour our own wine - she never poured a single glass
-we ordered a second bottle of white which when she brought to the table she plopped it down so hard that it sprayed on two of our party (still, there were not enough wine glasses and again had to ask for additional glasses)
-she forgot to put in one of our orders...we all slowed down eating, but the meal didn't come for at least 20 minutes - everyone's food was pretty much gone or cold at this point
-they offered dessert as compensation...the thing is, dessert comes with the meal
-when we asked to speak to "management" the "woman" was rude and abrasive saying "accidents happen" and "people are still eating, so she didn't see what the problem was"
-finally, to top off this incredible evening, the server who had forgotten the order came to our table and yelled at us! saying what a bad night she was having etc...
-i could give more examples, but this is already getting way to long...
in summary - yeah, mistakes happen, i get - just admit to it and make it right.
i have never felt compelled to write a review before, probably because i have never had such a horrific dining experience EVER. and i dine out a lot...it was a dreadful and upsetting evening.

I always order a medium (spice) chicken roti when I make it into Rehanah's and it's always fantasic.
The roti is wrapped around a mixture of chicken curry with potatoes and is more than enough for a filling lunch or dinner.
The chicken pieces are huge and have never been dry or fatty and even though I only order medium spice it's so hot and spicy!
The actually roti wrap is light and slightly chewy, never soggy or dry.
Rehanah is so friendly and must work pretty hard to keep the restaurant running alone.
The restaurant has a few seats and a nice open front so it's nice and bright but there is no bathroom. Rehanah is always pumping out some Trinidadian beats to listen to while you wait and there are a few magazines to read as well.
This is not the kind of place to go on a nice date, unless you take the food out and eat at the lake : o )
It's cash only so don't forget to hit up the bank before stopping in!

We arrived at Migz and were seated right away as the restaurant was empty that Sunday night. Between the four of us we ordered a plate of wings and two 3-person platters. The wings were very unappetizing as they were dry and had very little flavor. The platters which came with three kinds of BBQ meat and two sides each were also very unappetizing. The pulled pork was actually wet (not juicy), the ribs were very dry and had very little meat on the bones and the beef brisket was saturated in a heavy BBQ sauce which overpowered the taste of the meat. Our group had to send back the baked beans (which was more like a soup chili) because they were too salty, the fries were just average. To replace the baked beans we ordered a side of cream corn and a side of hush puppies (deep fried cornbread balls), these two dishes saved the meal. The corn was fresh and crisp and in a fabulous cream sauce (definitely not traditional cream corn) and the hush puppies where piping hot, crisp and full of flavor. The total came to just over $60 with the beverages.
Our waitress seemed to be lacking in experience but she was attentive and worked hard to make us happy diners.
