arrosto any problems I hope not
we've been to arrosto about 15 times since it opened, 13 times were very good, last 2 times not good at all
also the restaurant is up for sale, anybody got the skinny on this please ?
We went last Saturday night for the first time at 8pm; four of us. The couple with us had previously been to Arrosto. We were right on time but it seemed a table was not available. The bar was two deep; it was suggested we order drinks. The hostess was unwilling to estimate the waiting time; her attitude was what did you expect, it was Saturday night; it did not seem like she was having a good day. The room certainly was energetic; the guests all seemed to be enjoying themselves; the food looked good; a pizza oven in the middle of the main room is a nice feature .
Some how, in ten minutes, a table became available. Now another wait at the table to be greeted by the waiter; i had not ordered a cocktail in the bar. The waiter can't be found but the hostess somehow realizes we have not been served (even water) and happily takes my cocktail order.
Waiter is found, the water is served as well as bread; excellant bread basket.
We order and the first courses are quit good; i had a simple salad but the others cooked items.
Now the main course for two is served, the pasta. the fish special for the night ordered by the other two does not arrive; the table is advised that the fish comes from another part ot the kitchen. Wow, no expeditor in the kitchen; we don't get it. The orders finally arrive after the pasta dishes have been finished. What was surprising is that food was quit good if not excellent
found it to be very average, at best.
Somethings outright not good.
Service was amateurish, scattered, distracted, or just standing in the corner on their cell phones.
But the food is, as I said, only fair to average and nothing that makes me want to go BACK for.
