Respond to Review of Garden Cafe on the Green
Review: I hate to be the first to write a less than positive review, but, here it goes... The menu at this restaurant was impressive at first. I was ready to have a good experience there but a few things went wrong. Our waitress seemed nice at first approach. She took our order, brought us some bread while we waited for our appetizer, and then seemed to forget about us. 15 minutes (too long) later, the waitress brought our appetizer, but was unfriendly and inattentive for the rest of our time there. The first course tasted ok, but was executed with far less skill than one might expect for the price. 25 minutes after she cleared the table after appetizers, our meals arrived and seem a little less than fresh than expected. It was as if everything (except the greens, which were fresh) was prepared in advance and sat there all day before we arrived. I am especially sensitive to this as a health-conscious eater. From looking at other tables, one would do best with salads, not hot food there. Also, (not to harp on service issues but...) I drank water during my meal, but my glass remained empty after my first. I saw other tables get regular refills but they had a different waitress. I will not return or recommend this place to friends.
