Bland, bland, bland
"I have eaten here 4 times and always conclude the same - bland, bland, bland - absolutely no flavor to the dishes, which is shocking considering the chef won "Oregon Top Chef" twice in a row. I commented to the waitress on my latest bland dish (my husbands was also bland and cold) and was informed that "Most of our customers are older and don't like spicy food, so thats why we serve our condiments on the side (chili oil, Sriracha, peanuts and lime), so you can flavor it yourself. "
My major issue is that food doesn't need to be "spicy" to have flavor, lovely, intricate flavors should be developed in the cooking process - that's what I'm paying for. This food has no flavor at all and is totally dependent on the condiments and a ton of salt and pepper to liven it up. Just not good food.
Additionally, the wine glasses are thick with a "rolled rim", unsuitable for even a cheap glass of wine (which is all that is available).
I give this restaurant a 2 because it is health conscious and caters to vegetarians/vegans. "
