Terrible Service...over charge too. – Five of us ate at the retsaurant tonight. Food was okay.. However, the service was poor. Our waitress Kate was mediocre. My drink order was not as I had ordered it and even after I corrected it, I had to leave the table and go to the bar to get it right. At the end of the meal the restaurant apparently did not have the chocolate mousse that was to come with the meal and Kate only offered fruit or coffee as an option. If I had been paying and not another member of the party the tip would have been zero. The drink bill was very high and I went to talk to the bartender and found we were over charged $ 5 on a thirty dollar tab. The bartender could not do
anything until talking to the waitress and she was clueless. The apparent manager said they would fix it on the credit card. I do not recommend this place and members of the part had eaten there regularly, but will not again.
A Celebration of Mediocraty – I would consider myself somewhat of a food critic and I have the gut to prove it. The food was not bad by any means, but it's fairly easy to tell that O'Bistro has a young kitchen. The steak was overdone and the Bechamel sauce tasted like watered down Sweet Baby Ray's. I will say that the roasted potato's were excellent! My wife's Blue Burger was average at best. The meat lacked essential flavors, it could have used a little more fat content. The desert was dressed impress but that is all. It was dry and bland.
Plating was georgeous but the food left something to be desired. I know it is a popular place and I'm thinking that it's the atmosphere bringing people back. Maybe I just came on a day that the Chef's were hungover. I will try it one mor time, but in all honesty I don't believe it will change my mind. Disappointed to say the least..
Cute decor, good service, good food – The food here really is quite good. Lunch time can be maddening crowded with pick up and what not. The chicken salad is delicious as is the smoked salmon. They have nice waffle fries as a side that are never greasy. Nice martinis during happy hour.
Great breakfast find – They have a great, great breakfast menu. The crad cake benedict if simply the best. The mushroom and brie omelette is to die for. You have to order a mini-muffin (Bran are the best) you won't beleive how good they are. The "O" potatoes actually come out hot. That's something to appreciate around here. We go for dinner as well, which, even though I've never had a bad meal at dinner, breakfast take the cake for me!
