Savona and farmer and the fish
Here is why some restaurants make it and some dont.Obviously being new restaurants they are busy.While as i called both for reservations Savona while not being able to accomodate me Went out of their way to offer other times or dates to try their restaurant.While Farmer and the fish acted clueless and said they could seat me at 6 if i left at 6 45.obviously they think their opening crowds will continue forever (which they wont)My point being a restaurant is more then just food. And how you treat your customers starts from the first phone call.Needless to say i wont bother calling farmer and the fish again.Ill wait till they start offering 1000 points to eat there on open table
Funny you should ask as it happens we did make it.The place was packed which is kind of sad
it just shows how desperate people are for a good restaurant in westchester.On to the food
We started with an order of littlenecks they were inedible really poor quality.My wife had the tuna it was also inedible due to being over spiced.I had the tuna burger which while edible
was probably the blandest dish i ever had.It was Tuna on a bun no condiments add ons nada.
I thought the food was very disappointing.To be fair the couple next to me and believe me tables are so close your be family by the time you leave.They had the lobster bake and thoroughly enjoyed it.That might be taken with a grain of salt because i think they were on their third martini by the time the food came:).I personally wont go back but it certainly could just of been a bad day for them time will tell
Ironically I had the opposite experience. When I called Savona, whomever answered the phone told me to call back after 12noon in a very curt tone. When I did call back, I did not get a good feeling at all. I felt they couldnt be bothered. I had the opposite experience on the phone with Farmer...friendly and happy to have us dine there. Maybe its just who we got on the other end but could not agree more that the 1st point of ntry to the restaurant need needs to be professional and welcoming!
