Not quite up to expectations
Posted on 06 / 16 / 2015
I'd heard a lot of good things about this place, so I came in with pretty high expectations. It didn't quite meet them.
The atmosphere was great, and despite being seated at a shared table, we had enough space that my husband and I didn't feel much different in that regard than if we'd had a table to ourselves, and the staff were good.
However, the food, while tasty, wasn't, on the whole, anything remarkable. The queso dip was good, but the beans in it could have done with a little more flavour. The mushrooms were delicious. The roast potatoes had little crispy bits, but the whole potatoes themselves weren't crispy, though that could be a personal preference thing. The avocado ice-cream, while adventurous, was actually pretty ordinary and I didn't finish it, and the chocolate torte it came with was pretty ordinary as well. The pear crumble, however, was a wonderful example of taking an old favourite and tweaking it to make it new and interesting without losing the comforting charm.
Also, just a note about the booking system. When I tried to book, via the website, it didn't take any of my information, but told me it had made a booking. When I called, I found out that the booking hadn't been made. If the booking app isn't behaving itself properly, I think you might have more success searching for the restaurant on dimi website.
