Respond to Review of Saveurs VegetHalles
Review: As the title suggest, the food was "at par". I'd expect more for the price we paid, even in Paris. We arrived late as we got lost (Warning: construction in the area 07/2012) When we arrived our server rushed us to order, told us the kitchen would close at 22:00 an asked us to order everything at once. So we chose our starter, meals, deserts and wine in one look at the menu. I ordered the seitan stake, which was HUGE and way too much protein on my plate when combined with the side of cold boiled lentils. The other side was steamed cabbage and fennel, which just seemed really plain and colourless. My partner ordered the crispy burger, which I thought was delicious. Just a warning though, the fries appear and taste like frozen fries. We ordered the bruschetta for starting and it was good. the veggies tasted very fresh. We were rushed though our meal, our plates coming out before our appetizer was finished, and 1/2 way through dinner she came to verify that we still wanted desert. I said "YES" and she seemed upset, and reminded us again that the kitchen was closed and the restaurant would close in another 35 minutes. I recognized she didn't want us to stay so said "no, we're fine" When the bill came she charged us for 75CL instead of 50CL of wine. When I went to explain that there was an error I hardly had to say 2 words before she took the bill and said she was sorry ... I try to think the best of people in general, but I'm pretty sure she was aware she was ripping us off and though we wouldn't notice. We paid and left at 10:35 after a rushed mediocre meal. Sad as I've been looking forward to this restaurant for my last 2 visits. Won't go again.
