Last night was the second time I have taken and out of town guest to The Bicycle Thief and was disappointed. The decision to go there has been based on my guest getting the recommendation, usually from their hotel or other word of mouth... so, we go.... The location and the atmosphere is great. But our service and food, sadly, unremarkable :( So much potential, lost.
My friend and I each had starter and entrees. My crab cake (singular) was mushy but tasted fine, not exceptional. And my risotto, over cooked and while not unpleasant, lacked favor, definition and depth. I am not a fabulous cook and even I know risotto is easy!... Butter, some strong cheese, salt and you're done! So, that it was poorly done was unfortunate.
I really want to like the Bicycle Thief. But will be reluctant to to take out of town guest there if I want them to have a good food experience.... maybe I'll just make sure I talk up the view and lower any food expectations :(
.... Sorry Bicycle Thief :(
