Respond to Review of Red Velvet Cafe - Sahara
by karoonay

Review: I've been going to Red Velvet for well over 2 years now. Each time, if I get a new waiter/waitress, I would ask what the ingredients were and it's as if they read from the same script, they always said it was their "secret" recipe but reassured me that it was completely fresh and homemade. I just chalked it up to maybe they didn't want to reveal their "secret" to rivals. I always questioned the supposed calorie content of their baked goods and laughed each time they said their cookies were 27 calories. I consider myself a pretty good baker, but it doesn't take a baker to realize that they weren't telling the truth, but I trusted them. Then recently I started staying away from gluten. I went there today to try to conjure up a gluten-free lunch for my fiance and I was thinking black beans, veggies and brown rice until I was told that the pho chicken they use is completely gluten free. This is when I started doing a little more research. Many gluten-free people have eaten there and gotten sick, why? Until this afternoon, I never actually caught this place telling a lie, only questioned their "low cal" desserts. Then I stumbled up on this article on the review journal that I will post after this review. Read it for yourselves. This review is not bashing on the food that they serve; however, not only must a restaurant serve good food, they must also be credible and tell the customers exactly what is IN their food. I cannot put into words how disgusted and disappointed I am with Red Velvet Cafe after reading this article. The bottom line is this...the ONLY time to lie is when you're hiding something and this is one of those times. If you asked me last week, I would have rated this place about a 4...I will rate them a 2-NEEDS IMPROVEMENT. Like I said, their food is good but what's in it??? http://www.reviewjournal.com/columns-blogs/jane-ann-morrison/cookies-might-be-too-good-be-true
