We usually do not write on these kind of pages, but this time service and quality has been so bad that we must say something.
We come from a region with the highest number of michelin starts per square meter, and we usually try michelin star restaurants wherever we go. This is why we ended up at Intermezzo during out visit to Dresden.
Service was very poor: they served the food without utensils (it took a while to get their attention to let them know we had nothing to eat with), we had to serve our own wine a few times (having to stand up from the table) as they would never pay attention to our empty glasses, and we had to remind them a few times every time we ordered a new bottle.
Food was not for a michelin star: though the appetizers where very tasty (not particularly elaborated nor "nouveau cuisine", but very tasty), the rest of the dishes where basic and did not taste good. The chicken was just boiled chicken (like sick people eat where we come from) and the "tomato gnocci" where normal gnoccis with what seemed canned tomato sauce. The fish was way too cooked and nobody finished the desserts.
The menu was very limited. E.g. all starters except of one had salmon (so if you are allergic or just do not like it your options are limited) and absolutely all deserts where strawberry based. They were 2 fish dishes, and 2 meat dishes, 2 soups and 4 starters.
When we sat down, the asked us if we would like a glass of champain. We said yes, as it is not unusual that restaurants invite the guests to a glass of wine/champain as a started while deciding with the menu. They brought a half-full glass of a nice champain. What a surprise when we saw 13€ per glass being charged in the bill at the end. The 75cl water bottle was charged at 7,50€, which seems honestly just too much, even for a michelin star restaurant.
At the end, we served our wine, we left half of the dishes unfinished as they were uncomfortable to eat, we had to constantly fight to get the staff¨s attention, we had to request utensils for eating (and not, it was not a modern dish where the chef asks the customers to eat with their hands), there was no explanation of the dishes nor the ingredients, and we left quite unsatisfied after a 305.50€ bill for 3 people.
