I go to fine restaurants often, including Michelin restaurants in Europe and top restaurants in large US cities. I have been to Evangelines under several mangement folks in the past. My experience today was extremely poor. The food was good, but was over-shadowed by a bad dining experience. I won't give all the details, but we were rushed through the meal. My first wine choice could not be found ... my second was out and so they brought three wines not on the menu which they told me I could have for a "good price" but they could not tell me what a good price meant except "less than the normal price." The food came quickly (before the wine finally arrived) and the empty plates were taken quickly ,,, often without asking. The food was good, and the meal would have been fine except for the bad luck / bad service. But then, after dessert and asking for the check we were asked if we could pay by cash or check, since the computers were not working and so they would take any credit cards.
Part of it was bad luck, but I felt compelled to talk to the manager ... which I rarely do unless it is to commend the wonderful meal. The manager was polite and apologized. I did not complain much. I know he cannot help the computer glitch. But still ... it was the imperfect ending to an imperfect meal.
If you want someplace nice in Tuscaloosa, Kozys, Epiphany Cafe and Chuck's Fish will also give you good food, without the service hassels.
