Nice effort but poor execution
Posted on 05 / 05 / 2011
For the prices charged at Tiny's, we were very disappointed by the food. It seemed like the chefs did not taste the food before serving it to us because the seasonings were dramatically off. We split an order of the beet latkes for an appetizer, and we each ordered a vegan caesar salad for our main entree. Unfortunately, the beet latkes were served on top of a huge puddle of raw ginger puree and with more ginger puree on top. We love ginger, but this was just too much. The sweet and woodsy beet flavors were completely overwhelmed by the overpowering soapiness of the raw ginger puree. I can't imagine that the ginger sauce was supposed to be served in that quantity and with that concentration of ginger flavor. The seasoning was way off with our vegan caesar salads, too. The dressing was so salty! It seemed like the salt in the caesar dressing recipe had been accidentally doubled or tripled. If one of the chefs had actually tasted the dressing after preparing it, they would have noticed the over-seasoning. Also, we had to wait a long time for our food -- about 20 minutes, which is a long time for 'counter service' food. I will say that the cashier and cooks were all nice, and the view from the deck is great for people-watching along Commercial Street.
concept is good, nice view
food was not good, seasonings were way off, expensive
