My husband and I went to Cricklewood for dinner tonight and had the ribeye dinner and the halibut thinking that it would be as good as it has been in the past. Well the past is just that. THE PAST. Let's start with the starter! We ordered the Balls of Fire, chicken nuggets in buffalo sauce except they were out of them so they said they were 'preparing' them differently tonight and would that be alright? Sure, why not? Well, what came was chopped up chicken breast lightly sauted with a drizzle of wing sauce over it. Wow guys, really?!? Then came our dinner. The halibut smelled fishy and was served without any sauce and was very dry laying next to the steadfast baked potato on a salad plate; no steamed veggie mind you but I did get a lemon. The ribeye was not prime choice and very tough and the fat trim was not cooked, just bloby. Ugh. I'd like to point out that we didn't have any alcohol with our meal, just one glass of iced tea for each of us. This dinner cost the two of us $80.00! Cricklewood was a wonderful place to go in the past. You could count on getting a good cut of meat or a fresh piece of fish and when you first sat down you got your bread with your drinks. Alas, no more. Hard times are apparent here or maybe the good cooks have found greener pastures. All around this experience was very disappointing to say the least. You should never go away spending that kind of money and still be hungry.
