was there for a friend's bday. i had the veg version of the 'chicken' (breaded tofu) with greens and this rice & almonds thing with truffle oil supposedly in there somewhere.. it was very bland.. and the tofu was way too salty. the portion was tiny as well and was nowhere near worth the money i paid. i don';t mind small portions if it's an upscale place and the food is actually good but it was really awful. my friend ordered the lamb dish and couldn't even finish it as it was so bland and dry. she said she felt like she was just eating kentucky fried chicken or something.

    I agree- i'm often confused by the attention it gets.

      I agree 100 percent. I've been there twice and both times were lack luster to say the least!

        How disappointing! It's been on my hitlist for a while now, but perhaps I'll have to rethink. I hear their sister-restaurant - Coca - is just as bad, if not worse.

          Czehoski is not a place for serious eaters.

            Czehoski is really more of a drink spot than a dining destination. They do a decent grilled cheese though...

              Grill cheese has been off of the menu for quite a while..Excellent Sunday brunch with baked croissants from Thuet, that they use for Eggs Benny..

              I agree, we went once for lunch. The food was very mediocre. We were one of 3 tables seated and it took painfully long, despite repeat apologies from the wait staff. Never going back.

                So, in other words, the food was terrible and there wasn't enough of it?

                Classic...
