A group of friends went to AKA Bistro for lunch last Friday. None of had been there before, but we'd seen some good reviews (as well as some less good reviews) on TripAdvisor and elsewhere.
The first thing we noticed was that the menu was more than a little confusing. There were two or three different fixed price options for lunch, and these had quite specific requirements that were not spelled out. So the waitress had to explain them to the group several times before people had it clear enough to order.
All in all, the food was just okay. I had a mushroom tartlette for an appetizer that was quite good and the best thing I tasted. A side salad with it was uninteresting. I had mussels in white wine broth for a main course, and there were lots of mussels all of which were fine. My wife got the soup of the day, a mushroom bisque, which tasted entirely of mushrooms; it didn't much better than what you get from a can. She got the hamburger as the main course, and it was cooked as requested but wan't particularly tasty. She ended up trading with me. The fries that same with many of the meals were good. Another person got the quiche and felt like it hadn't been made fresh, and another got the steak and thought it was just okay though liked the apple salad he had with it. We all shared a chocolate mousse for dessert, which again was good but nothing special.
The price was pretty high for lunch, and the food was just not that great. It's hard to judge a place based on a single lunch, but given our experience, as well as the other reviews on TripAdvisor that seem similar, I don't think we'll be going back.
