We met friends at Wildflower for dinner last night. We had a very pleasant experience -- the service and food was good, and we ate on the outdoor patio at a leisurely pace.
My wife and I started with the grilled artichoke hearts appetizer, which our friends recommended. I wasn't impressed, and would not order again -- too little to eat, too much (and messy) work and too high a price ($12) for what we were served. However, both of us enjoyed our entrees -- my wife had chicken ($18) and I had paella ($21) -- both dishes were presented well, the food was tasty and the entrees were filling. My wife also had a field greens salad -- a very nice portion for $6. We finished dinner by sharing a butterscotch pudding ($5) -- we agreed that this was the best butterscotch pudding we had ever had! With 1 beer, our tab came to about $72 before tip.
Chaz was our waiter -- he was attentive, and overall did a good job. As I mentioned at the outset, we had a leisurely dinner -- 2 1/2 hours -- and we never felt rushed. We at on the outside patio, as the noise level inside was too high when we arrived. Even with the temp at 90+ degrees when we sat down, the patio was quite comfortable, and it was nice to be outdoors.
We hadn't been to Wildflower for many years -- just fell off the radar screen, I guess. We won't take as long to dine there again.
