Gaudi- Save your $

  • 1

Went to this newer Tapas restrurant for dinner Sat night. It was so bad Gordon Ramsey couldn't save it!

Was empty and we were standing around for 5 min's while they were trying to figure out a table for us.They put us directly across from the kitchen swinging door!He knew i wasn't pleased with his seating choice for us but didn't offer to correct it!

Waiter handed us the menu and told us what they didn't have on the menu and then couldn't remember the specials.

Could not read the confusing menu's because things were either written in by hand on a top of a printed menu or the entree details were printed over a dark backround and couldn't be read.

Drinks: how about $9.50 for a call Martini and $9-10/glass average wine.The Martini had a tiny olive w/ a pit.

Now for the good part,how about cuttlefish that came out looking like Gorton's fish sticks,chorizo sliced like (4) very thin medallions on a stick w/ (2) burnt and (2) cold,under cooked potatoes,(4)gambas that came out over cooked and were size 30-40.All of the Tapas! were served on cold plates.

It was one of the worst meals I have eaten Seattle and we had the honor of giving them $100 of our hard earned $!

This is the 1st review I have ever written and normally just chalk it up and never go back. I have decided to start bitching because i have been stung more often than not in trying newer Seattle Restraurants and have been burned.I am going to stick with more established top tier places.However,there are several "top" places that are way over rated for what they offer that are mentioned on this board.
