We used to visit the Temple Bar about once a week when they had jazz. Then they ended the jazz and we stopped going.

We returned for the first time in quite a while to find that their limited menu items were pretty much the same but the portions had shrunk significantly. We ordered the Mediterranean platter had fewer items on it than it once did and only a few thin slices of baguette with which to spread or sop up what was on the plate. Not enough bread to do the job. So w asked for more and wee charged another $1.50 for four more thin slices.

Service was slow and not particularly friendly. Not rude, just didn't feel like they cared if I was in the house or not.

It is a funky hang out and a lot of college students and 20 somethings do hang out here. So maybe the problem is I am just of the wrong generation.

Great place to catch up with friends, girls night, or to catch a quick cocktail before the Pickford! They have a bottle of wine/cheese plate for $15 -great deal. Try the French 75 or the Gordon.
