I too missed the old owners and homey decor. The BBQ was just as good, though. The wait staff was friendly, and I had no feelings of taking up space as a single at the counter. I didn't get a chance to visit on my last trip in August, but it was only due to scheduling. I didn't see any... More

The family photos are taken down. the colorful cheery atmosphere is now muted and doesn't go with the restaurant's name. service was poor. kitchen was overwhelmed or inexperienced. my food was wrong and my husband's meal wasn't even made. the waitress didn't realize the mistakes and didn't apologize for them. the people sitting behind us were complaining of errors when...

We have been visiting Food is Love for the past 3 years. It became one of our breakfast destinations. Everyone was so friendly & the food and service used to be excellent! We No more! The new owners have taken a gold mine & turned it into a ghost town! We visited for breakfast last week @ 8:30 am &... More

We visit Englewood every year for vacation, this year we did a family trip and we were excited to bring our boys to Food is Love. As soon as we went in and sat down, I was like "All the family pictures are gone". My husband responded "uh oh". Solo waitress was mentioned in another review, yes...there was only one,... More

New ownership living off the former owners reputation. What a disappointment! Waitress didn't know what an Arnold Palmer was should have been my first clue. Corned beef hash, a former favorite was watery with uncooked green peppers tossed in at the last minute. Probably canned. Fresh fruit wasn't except for a strawberry. Inedible quiche had a raw crust and a... More

Prediction: Gone before the high season. 21$ for ribs? Who/where do they think they are? Liked the prior ownership, and the place seems cleaner than it was. But, prices are too high for a glorified diner. Nothing fancy about the place, dustballs on wall behind where a picture probably had fallen down. An eatery should be clean, first. No garnishes,...

Same experience as another reviewer. Used to be a nice little restaurant, good was very good, always seemed to be busy. Went for lunch yesterday, place was empty, food was aweful and overpriced. Nothing like the old Food is Love. Won't be going back!

What happened? New owners who have taken a gem and turned it into a disaster. The atmosphere, the staff, the service, the food have all gone way downhill. I understand that new owners want to put their own touch on the menu. But they should be smart enough to maintain the quality of the food that people have become accustomed... More

Food was OK. A little surprised when they charged me $1.00 for a to-go cup. Omelet was good, a little higher priced than I expected.

The new owners are from Europe, Austria I think. The food is really delicious. The owners came out to answer a question about the spices in my wife's entree. She explained how she prepared the "Schnitzel" just as it would be prepared in her mothers kitchen back home in Austria. Romey has a true passion for cooking and it really... More
