Cafe Adam -- Great Barrington, MA
Just wanted to report on our dinner Friday night at Cafe Adam. Overall, quite good. It's a nice place, fairly small, not too loud, reasonably priced and very good food. I had the smoked salmon appetizer and the bouillabaise entree and enjoyed each. A few quibbles....There are blackboards around the restaurant with Specials. One entree on the Board read Beef Bourginon with fettucini. My wife tried to order it but was told that it was a lunch entree. Nowhere did it say that. Why didn't they erase it before the dinner crowd arrived? There was a beef bourginon on the dinner menu, however, so she said she wanted that. It came with mashed potatoes instead of fettucini. She asked if she could have the fettucini (we were more than willing to pay the $3 more for the dinner entree) instead of the mashed potatoes because she is allergic to dairy. The waitress said the chef would not do it. We were surprised at their reluctance to make what we considered a minor change. Service was a little spotty. Couldn't find our waitress after the meals were served. They seemed a little understaffed and our waitress said someone had called in sick so I guess that was the reason. Overall, a nice place....just hope they can fix some of their service issues and be a little more willing to make changes and be understanding of customers with food allergies.
