Ok, so I've been at Bella Vida for breakfast previously and had generally good food and service, plus it has a nice atmosphere, so I went here for dinner with my fiancé last night.
Upon checking in we were told the wait would be 10 minutes. Not bad for 7:30pm in the off season, being one of the few places open. We were surprisingly seated more quickly-- at one of 2 tiny tables squished in-between the booths, specifically in the walk path of wait staff.
The waitress took coffee order was made but it took over 5 minutes for it to arrive. By that time we realized that the tiny table needed to have the flower vase removed just from the creamers, sugar, 2water glasses and silverware (which did not include any spoons, ergo stirring coffee was accomplished using the butter knife).
After perusing the menu, we ordered burgers and fries, along with a cup of black bean soup. When the bread/oil arrived, we had to ask for another table, realizing there was no way the table would hold 2 plates as well. We were moved in a few minutes to foyer area table, including old utensils (still no spoons...) but minus the oil for bread.
Anyhoo, down to the meal part... Our burgers arrived fairly quick, though I had the lettuce and tomato he had ordered on my bun, and the black bean soup (which was lukewarm on arrival).
Long story short the burgers were the most tasteless either of us ever had, fries had unexpected vinegar taste and the soup was terrible. All in all an expensive/$30+ change bad experience and we will never go back. The 26 cents change back by the way, which should've been there was not. Really now!?
