“... could do better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2011

Zafferano describes itself as 'elegant dining' and much of our evening qualified as such. Excellent waiting staff, nice place settings, lovely desserts. However there were discordant notes; artificial flowers on the tables (this is Kenya, a veritable Eden of flowers), poorly conceived main courses including seafood platter drowned in a thousand island dressing, jar of Colman's mint sauce plonked on the table and a poor command chain. All in all, if you just want to impress then it's dandy but if you really want good food, it still has a way to go. But I'm sure it will get there eventually.
