Respond to Review of CLOSED: La Mano Verde
Review: After reading so many positive reviews of this place, my boyfriend and I were very excited to try it and had high expectations. The place was empty when we got there and the waitress let us choose our seats, so we sat by the open window, but it was still uncomfortably warm. Then some other customers came in and were seated at the table right next to us, when the rest of the large restaurant was completely empty! It was very awkward. We went there for lunch, hoping that they would have a lunch menu that wouldn't be quite as pricey as the entrees. They had one lunch special that was cheaper but it didn't appeal to us so we went with the regular-priced options. It was basically a smaller selection of what they offered during dinner hours. We ordered the bruschetta for an appetizer, and it was good, though not anything particularly special. I had the Tempeh Skewers with peanut sauce and my boyfriend had a raw Tagliatelle for the main course. I was pleased with how the tempeh was cooked, but the whole dish was waaay too salty and I could barely finish it. The rice it came with was really salty and the stir-fried vegetables were an oily mess. The raw pasta dish was pretty average, bland, nothing special. We decided to skip dessert after such a disappointing meal. Maybe we just went on a bad day, but it really should have been better for how much we paid.
