Respond to Review of Herbivore - Divisadero
Review: Three out of the five people in our party could not eat their meal at the Herbivore on Divisadero in San Franciso. My daughter had the Pad Thai that came without any seasoning, tofu, etc. and tasted like a soggy dish rage. She sent it back and got a very small diner salad. Even thought she told the waitress that dish was not prepared correctly and had no tofu, seasonings, etc. the waitress sill charged for the meal. My daughter's boyfriend ordered the Lentil Loaf. The Lentil Loaf was something like out of the early ages of vegetarian foods (frozen, or prepared in a cellophane wrapper) and tasted yuk. It was suppose to come with a Beet Sauce, but it came with a salsa (maybe to cover for the yuk). The "seasonal vegetable" turned out to be sautéed Chard (one of the few vegetables he could not eat - it was a shame that the waitress didn't tell us what the "seasonal vegetable was"). He was only able to eat the mash potatoes and gravy. My partner ordered the Homemade Veggie Berger and it was mediocre at best (the cook should be sent to the little Cozmic Cafe in the little California town of Placerville to find out what a modern-day Homemade Veggi Berger should taste like). All in all the meal was very disappointing. I noticed that there were very few customers; I guess the word gets out quickly. I have eaten at this restaurant many times, and each time the service and food is getting worse.
