Ugh-the Music was HORRIBLE

  • No, I would not go back!

Went on a friday night. Place was pretty empty. We were hungry so we ordered the cheese and meat platter, with olives. The cheese selection was great, but the portions are VERY small. Expect about 3 small pieces of cheese. Not worth the cost. Drinks are okay. The sauvignon blanc was pretty good, but the caipirinha was a bit too limey-not worth $12. Service was great, our waitress was friendly and came by often for drink refills. But overall, we downed our drinks because we absolutely could not STAND the music. It started off with some sort of elevator music-really bad instrumental/jazz. It got worse though...soon they were playing some horrible 70s style disco music. Really really bad! We had to get out just to escape the music!!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
