Poor customer service, overpriced food
Posted on 09 / 07 / 2013
The first time I went to Stock Pot was last year and I had trouble finding it as I had lost my piece of paper with the address. So I ended up walking up and down Gertrudes St for half an hour before finding it. When I arrived, I was very thirsty and so drank water from my water bottle which they didn’t liked, despite the effort I had made to find the place. So we did not get off to the best start, but anyway since I was there I decided to try to the food. It was ok and so I wrote a review mentioning they had vegetarian food, but I didn’t tell them, because I usually do not tell places when I write reviews. After that I went a few more times, and Richard, the owner, was pressuring me to write a review. I thought it was odd considering I had already written a review, but I didn’t mention that. He wanted me to mention things about their meat dishes, etc which again was odd because I had only eaten their vegetarian food. Frankly I thought their food was a bit expensive. They also do not have specials for lunch. When I went there, I would usually spend about 5 lats (without a drink) for my vegetarian food which was expensive for a cafeteria style restaurant; at almost all other restaurants in Riga including actual sit down restaurants, lunch costs less than that except for the most expensive ones and to spend so much elsewhere at lunch, one would have to go to a non vegetarian restaurant and order non vegetarian food. It is far more expensive than any other vegetarian place at lunch and one of the most expensive places if not the most expensive place at dinner for vegetarians.
I have other things to say, but I would prefer to say them in a pm rather than write them here.
