Respond to Review of CLOSED: Grass Root Plant Based Foods
Review: My wife and I are trying to work at making out lives more healthy. We both eat meat but want to branch out and try new things. I was excited to find a raw food restaruant close to us. I had read about eating raw foods and the health benefits. The location of the restaurant is not the best, parking was hard to find and not in the greatest of neighborhoods. The decorations inside are very inviting and warm. I love the orange walls. I read the reviews that talked about how wonderful the wait staff were. That was not the case with us. The place was not that busy, and the server found us a table. She took our drink order and food order at the same time. I asked for the spaghetti and was told they were making more and it was not ready. She directed me to the meatloaf and "mashed potatoes (califlower)". I agreed. Our food came within a reasonable time, but no drinks. We had to call our server for drinks. For some reason they were skimpy on the ice in the drinks and when my wife asked for more she got maybe 2 cubes which left her with less than cool water. Oddly enough, within minutes of our food coming out, another couple got served none other than the spaghetti and meatballs. I would rate the food about a 4. The mashed potatoes were too salty. I loved the raw meatloaf it was excellent. My wife got a veggie burger which she stated was nothing better than the veggie burger at the local burger king. I was very disappointed with the server, she was on the phone a whole lot. There were no more than just a few customers in the restaurant. There was none of this warm and inviting reception that I had read about and no one's mother was serving samples. Over all, I would give them another chance to see if they were having an off day. The food was good except for the salty mashed potatoes. I also must mention the raw chocolate pie---it is to die for. I would love to order a whole one for the holidays.
