Coulda Been Good

Olea could have been a wonderful place for neighborhood brunch: it has been highly recommended by local friends and is decorated beautifully... too bad they forgot our food. After sitting there, waiting for our omelettes, as other patrons ordered, ate and left, it became clear that our order had been "misplaced." A very aggravating experience that the staff did little to remedy. Once we finally received our meal, we were definitely to frustrated to enjoy it.

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.
