I wasn’t going to write anything because I had a really odd experience here. However, after thinking about it, I can recommend everyone go, so I do want to make an article.
I’m not going to follow my normal format. I am just going to explain my experience. Let me just make it clear though, I loved the food here and would recommend anyone to try it.
Anyways, here is how my experience started. Once every week my girlfriend and I pick a restaurant to have a lunch date at. We usually choose one with small plates or at least a good selection of appetizers, choose multiple options and just try quite a few things. After a Google search we found a lunch menu for this place which looked amazing with a whole page of small plate options.
The problem came when we dropped into this restaurant and the only options were sandwiches or dinner entrees at $20+. We asked about the menu online and they said this was the only one they had. It was not a very appetizing menu to us.
We felt very deceived and very disappointed, and we had only been there for 5 minutes. Reluctantly we decided to order two dinner entrees although it was going to be expensive for lunch. When we did get the food we absolutely loved it. We just wished we had known what the menu was. We might have come for dinner to order some wine or drinks with this instead.
So, I make my way home and even though I loved the food, I would have loved the small plates menu more. How could they publish that online? Well it just frustrated me so much that I emailed the owner over my displeasure. To my surprise, when I woke up the next morning, I had a long email from the owner profusely apologizing. This wasn’t some small email he responded with. He really took time to address my concerns and give a heartfelt response.
Here is also where I felt dumb. After investigating, the menu I found really isn’t linked to anywhere on their website. The web developer took down all the links but kept it an active page which Google picked up. If I had simply gone to the website, I would have found their current menu. Turns out the menu I found is around 2 years old. So this whole fuss and experience was mostly my fault.
Looking back, while I had a different experience than expected, I still had some great food and found a restaurant where the owners love their place. They care about every customer and that is why I can highly recommend a visit to this place.
