Way Too Pricey. Small Portions For Your Money.
Posted on 11 / 09 / 2009
My family and I went here to eat a couple months back, and the atmosphere was real nice, the waiter was okay at first... (Though quite ditsy; setting our silverware down on the table without anything underneath. Ew.), and the food was good too, but the prices were unimaginable for what you get. If you're looking for expensive gourmet vegan food, this place is for you.
For four dinners and drinks it cost us over 120$. And it wasn't even worth it, in my opinion. The portions were not that big for how much they cost, (like 20$ a piece, 3$ for a drink, and nearly 10$ for tiny appetizers), so it was difficult to share with everyone. The dishes were unique to what I'm used to, but it seems like they're more about appearance than anything with the way the dishes are set up and the atmosphere.
The stuffed acorn squash was a bit bland, no one really cared for it because the squash tasted unseasoned. Everything else was great tasting, but even I knew I've made tastier things than what was here and that it wasn't worth the price AT ALL.
The waitress wasn't that helpful, but I was able to get no cheese on 1/4 the little thing they call a pizza appetizer.
It was difficult to get her attention during the meal if we wanted her.
We were running very low on money that evening, and none of us were expecting it to be so expensive so we were only able to pay for the food without leaving any kind of tip at all. It was unfortunate and I felt bad about it until a little later after we were done with the meal she noted we had not put a tip in there... then a while later they nearly blatantly ASKED for a tip from us when I was taking some pictures of the sunflower mural.
Right before I left,(being the only one left in there as the rest of my family went back out into the car), she asked AGAIN. And I was already pretty ticked that they asked at first. I told her I'd see from my mom, but we didn't have anything, so I had to explain to her in clear terms "I'm sorry Ma'm, we are really low on money and we don't have enough even for a tip." and left.
No place has ever been so blatant and that is one reason why I am never going to come back to here again. I was considering, maybe for a birthday since it was so expensive...
But that is just too much. You don't ASK for a tip. If anything, if it's required for the business you put it IN the bill, you don't ask for it.
All in all, I will not be returning here again and I was very unsatisfied with the service after the meal.
Unique Food, Cullinary Art, Good Atmosphere, Liked the Art, One of the few veg restaurants in GA
Way too expensive, Small Portions., Asking for a tip, wtf?, A little too dark; Kind of pretentious.
