My husband and I had an early reservation at Azafran. The restaurant's interior is nice and cozy. There is a room in the front where you can select your wine. The restaurant also sells a variety of olive oils, jams, and spices.
When we arrived there was another table of 2 in front of us and as we began to dine a large party of eight was seated behind us.
We started off with the cheese platter and a salad. They were both delicious. A good selection of cheeses and the salad was fresh and tasty. For the main course, I ordered the skirt steak that came with a Caesar salad. The skirt steak was presliced and cooked. Although I requested it medium it came out overcooked and chewy. The Caesar salad was about three whole romaine lettuce leaves with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top and two crunchy bread sticks on top. The bread sticks were actually stale. I was not too impressed. I was disappointed because our starters were tasty and was expecting our main course to be just as good.
During our starters, the time between our starters and main course, and the main course I did notice the chef was out in the dining room the entire time. He was mainly focused on entertaining the large table behind us. By the time we had completed our meal he did come by and asked us how everything was. By then I felt it was too late and that we were not very high on his priority and that he only asked us how we were doing so as to not look bad. We were just an afterthought. The service was ok, they forgot to bring us our wine, but eventually realized they had forgotten and apologized and brought it to us promptly.
This was just an average experience. The food did not stand out. It's a shame, we were hoping for a good experience.
