Respond to Review of Herbivore - Berkeley
Review: We stopped in on Friday night (Oct 19) and had an incredible dining experience. Great food, great service. Reminded me of the Michelin 3 diamond awards which means the restaurant is worth making a special trip to visit. We returned the following Saturday afternoon (Oct 27) hoping for a repeat experience, and wondered if we were in the same place. The waitress who had provided the amazing service a week ago, was bossy, authoritative and prickly, as well as providing the bare minimum of service. Oh well, we thought, there will still be amazing food. Well, we WERE amazed. Although one of our items was still delicious, the rest were barely okay. When we paid the bill, we were asked how things were, and we recounted our experience. We got a brusque "Sorry" and he went on to the next customer. We left feeling a bit like the restaurant had a split personality disorder. After reading some of the other reviews, I can see we weren't the only ones. Well, on to the ratings. 5 cows for the first visit, 1 for the second, works out to an average of 3 cows. Should we go back? Still undecided.
