No Wonder it was Half Empty on a Friday Night
Posted on 03 / 24 / 2012
At the restaurant, I ordered the special that the owner described in glowing terms as a plate with three different kinds of raw food. Instead it came in a bowl and was one big tasteless salad that had some dehydrated curry zucchini pieces, spiralized zucchini and big hunks of broccoli, including the stems, lettuce, and a piece of avocado, for $22.00. She said it came with garlic bread but not so. Imagine four raw food crackers as thin as a shoestring cut into 3 " lengths...I couldn't even eat a 1/4 of the salad as it was so bland and the shoestring garlic "bread" was so garlicky it was not palatable, and I like garlic.
Then I ordered the cheese cake and the nut crust was so thin it was only there in patches. The cheesecake portion had the consistency of vegetable lard that had been colored purplish. Again, I could not finish it. The owner came and asked how I was enjoying the meal and I said I have eaten in many raw food restaurants in Canada and the US and this is just a big salad. She said, "Yes, tonight's raw food is in the style of a salad!" and walked away before I had time to ask her why she described it as being served on a plate. Anyway, the service was as bad as the meal. I actually took a client there and was quite embarrassed about the whole event.
There is a vegan/vegetarian restaurant on 17th Avenue with a constant line up. When we left it was 7:30 and the place was still not even half full. The reason is clear....$30.00 each for a bad salad and even worst dessert.
Table water, parking, organic service
Bad attitude of owner, Tasteless food, Expensive for what you get
