My daughter and I decided to eat here for dinner today as we were in Kensington and I just read about this restaurant in Avenue magazine and the review was positive. We arrived early without a reservation but there was no one dining so it wasn't an issue to seat us. We wanted to eat quick so we just ordered pasta. I had the butternut squash ravioli and my daughter had the sausage pasta with tomato sauce. The food came timely however we noticed on the first bite that both of our dishes were a touch cold.
I told the waiter that the food was cold and he said he just saw it plated. I told him the food was tasty, just a bit cold but that it was fine (I didn't feel like waiting for it to be warmed up). As we ate we noticed that the middle of the dishes were hot so I'm guessing the plates were really cold. Although the food was very good, the low temperature made it slightly less desirable. The butternut squash ravioli in particular was divine. I also had the cheesecake which was pretty good but a tad too creamy for my liking.
I guess I was a bit disappointed that we weren't compensated anything on our bill for the cold food. I didn't feel that the waiter was all that concerned about it or maybe didn't believe us. Served on a warm plate, I wouldn've given this experience a better rating. I'll try this place again, if only to return for the ravioli.
