Respond to Review of Bar Bistro at The Arts Factory
Review: I've been curious to try B+B since they rolled out their new vegan menu. Went in around 2:45 today for a drink and tapas. Waited at the door to be seated for 5 minutes. There was only one other table seated. Finally was seated, ordered a Mimosa, but they were out of Prosecco, so I got the Watermelon Sangria. This was the only thing good about my experience there. I ordered the hongos. The rice was under cooked. The description said wild mushrooms in sherry. The mushrooms were button mushrooms and I didn't taste the sherry. Also, this took 20 minutes to arrive to my table. Next I ordered the red pepper hummus. This was palatable but nothing special. The hummus itself was bland. This took another 20 minutes to arrive. Finally, I got the tomatillos after another 20 minutes (yes, this seemed rather absurd). The tomatillos were so gross and soggy, and the filling was weird. At this point, I went looking for my server to cash me out. She said she couldn't take the tomatillos off my bill because the manager was upstairs. So, disappointing service and food for a $40 check. I was none too pleased. I will be advising my veg friends that this is not what it's hyped to be.
