This restaurant is part of a thriving corridor through Lakeview on Harrison Ave. My wife and I were quite excited to see it open up a couple of years ago. However, due to mixed reviews by some trustworthy peers, I had, till recently, stayed away.
Recently I took my mother out for lunch, and we were glad to (a) eat somewhere in the area, and (b) eat outside, and (c) try somewhere new.
From the beginning, the service was awful. The tables were not set properly. Our waiter was M.I.A. for most of the meal, and would take more than 10 mins to bring anything, be it ice for tea, extra napkin, refills, what-have-you.
He failed to read the daily specials to us, though he gladly volunteered the info for the trio sat down after us.
When he finally took our order, his first response was, "No appetizers?!?"
We waited over 30 minutes to receive 2 entrees (hamburger and meatloaf w/ baked macaroni). He came outside only one time to check on us during that period, and then...the party that was seated about 10 mins after us received their meals first.
Our waiter didn't even serve our meal, and never came back out to ask how it was. We never saw him again until we were done with our really poorly-done meals.
The burger tasted as though there was more salt than meat. It was quite overdone (for a medium) as well. The meatloaf was decent, but again, too salty (and I love salty foods!). Honestly, the quality was barely above that of a Hamburger Helper meal in a box.
Then his response when I requested the check (almost 90 mins after getting there):
It was a MAJOR letdown! We were not even thanked on the way out. The attitude alone would keep me away from the place, but the food was unimpressive enough to ensure that alone.
2 lunches, one of which was barely edible: $36, with no alcohol or apps.
My tip truly reflected the experience, and I will certainly stay away in the future.
