Respond to Review of Herbivore - Berkeley
Review: A few things on the menu are fantastic, a lot more are dreadful- stay away from anything that is supposed to be Italian! The philly cheesesteak sandwich is good, and the Irish Coffee is to die for. The breakfast potatoes manage to be both dry and greasy. They recently changed the menu, taking away options and making things more expensive, and, I've been told, the formerly delicious southwest scramble is now awful. The service is almost always terrible, too- I used to take a bottle of water in my purse because it was impossible to get refills. I went early last Sunday, there were only two other tables with people. We were seated and given water (!!!) promptly, but then waited fifteen minutes without being approached by a server. There were two servers working in addition to the busboy who seated us, and we saw them standing around, cleaning other tables, chatting, and staring out the window. After fifteen minutes we got up and left.
