Groupons for Caffe Azzuri (Hartsdale) and Fig & Olive (Scarsdale), worth it?
Pretty self-explanatory. I've read mixed things about both places on this board; are they worth giving a shot with these discounts?
I purchased the groupon for fig and olive...friends have enjoyed the food there, and with the big discount I figure it's worth a try!
I went to Caffe Azzurri a while back (maybe a year ago?), so I'm not sure my review would still apply, but we found it extremely overpriced for mediocre food. Never been back.
My meal at Fig & Olive was disappointing. The portion sizes are ridiculously small, and the tables are one on top of the other making you feel like you have to whisper to have a private conversation. Moreover, the seating is extremely uncomfortable. Nothing I have heard from anyone has convinced me that anything has changed since my meal there.
Very different places. I don't know what Groupon is offering, but twice I've used Savored for Azzuri and found it to be a good deal. Not a great deal, not a great meal, but all in all not a bad way to go. The good thing about Savored is you don't pay anything up front. You make the res, print it out, and you get 25% deducted from your bill (food and drink). Does not apply to their prix fix.
I happen to like Fig and Olive but have never used any sort of money off deal there
