I had high hopes for this place after looking at the menu and seeing all of the vegetarian items. Sadly, this place is disappointing to me and my partner.
The service was pretty sad. The hostess was rude, uncooperative (even though we had reservations), inexperienced, and seemingly only interested in some phantom party that never arrived during our 90 minute dinner. Our server was generally inattentive, lacking in knowledge about the specials and menu (and told us he didn't care), and screwed-up our order with the kitchen. The only bright spot was the cheerful visit by the manager.
The salads are terribly overpriced for what you receive. The food was rather bland. And the plating was terrible! A school cafeteria does a better job plating food than this place.
We won't be back. Too bad. This is a great location at Cooper-Young.

@oldtimeplayer and Brunetto Latini, it seems that you two are on the same side on this issue. Yet you use this forum to insult each other. Why? To what purpose?
Pancakes? Syrup? Bacon? Gross! Truly gross! Nathan and Ida are rolling over in their graves. If you have to desecrate a hot dog, please do so with disgusting brands like Bryan, Oscar Mayer or Ball Park. Doing this unspeakable crime to a Nathan's is like shitting on the American flag. Shame on Blues City Hot Dogs! Shame!
I am very happy to hear this news!
@ Mr. Davis, I wasn't directing my "backhanded compliment" query at you, but the poster Joey Butler. I thought that your review was quite "fair and balanced." Sorry, that was backhanded of me :-) Seriously, I enjoyed reading your review of the wonderful production. Mr. Hanford, Mr. Garrett, Ms. Hayner, and Ms. Hart are amazing actors, and I love watching them work!
@ Joey, why the backhanded compliment? Many of these community actors (including the director) frequently work at this town's professional theatre company (POTS).
To say that it is an "incredibly impressive production" is enough, don't you think? No need to qualify your comments with, "this is a community production."
Wonder what the calorie load is on those items pictured. Looks like a tremendous amount of food on a single plate.
@Kenny Crenshaw, you wrote, "...to speak and lobby for our God-given rights to self defense...."
First, there is no such thing as God. He/she/it is a fiction, a fantasy, a superstitious character invented (and perpetuated) by cowardly humans who fear their own mortality. Self-defense motivations are hard-wired survival instincts that have absolutely nothing to do with your fantasy "man-in-the-sky." Grow up, Crenshaw, and stop using your childish fairy-friend to justify what really motivates your gun fetish -- your penis envy.
