Respond to Review of CLOSED: Cafe Green - Dupont Circle
Review: My experience here seems to confirm many of the positive and negative reviews of this restaurant. Overall, the food was very good. The Thai-style noodles dish is well balanced and very tasty. With the addition of "chicken" -- which is some of the best fake chicken I've ever had -- the dish is substantial enough for dinner. The "cheese" burger was good, but does not stand out from a number of other veggie patties that I've had at other restaurants. The menu is structured in a non-standard way. It has basic items to which you can add other items for an additional charge based on the item. While this adds a significant amount of variation to their menu, it also makes the price of the dish somewhat misleading. The initial price is not terribly expensive, but then the charge for additional items can increase the price of the dish substantially. At least some of the dishes are not enough for a reasonable dinner without an addition. In contrast to the quality of the food, the service was truly awful. The waitress seemed annoyed by our arrival. She failed to tell us the specials (which I only found out about after ordering). When it came time to pay she disappeared. We had to ask TWO other servers to find her so that we could get our bill.
