Re: “Coquette's Bistro & Bakery

My wife and I thought we'd try a new restaurant for my Fathers Day meal. So I suggested we try Coquette Creperie, based on the menu I found online. As we both have been in the restaurant business, we base our opinions and critiques from a professional standpoint. If you want to be blown away by some out of this world cuisine, this is the place for you. Everything we ordered from the baby portabello mushroom appetizer to the Latin Lover crepe, to the lavender/chocolate mousse dessert crepe, tantalized our tastebuds and had us begging for more. Even the iced tea was phenomenal. The prices are very reasonable and you definately get your money's worth. Kudos to Turu and her Mom (owners) and Scott the Chef.

Re: “Rico's Café and Wine Bar

When Poor Richard's is open you can get good food. Unfortunately then seem to have the same non-cleaning policy as Poor Richard's - tables are always dirty - hire some buspeople with disinfectant spray! The tables are pretty close together - go here if you REALLY like people.

Re: “Oakley's Café & Bistro at Sundance Mountain Lodge

We (me and some local friends) live locally and really tried to give these folks our business. Some of the basic dishes - like buffalo burgers - are ok. But, they drop the ball big time on service. We have tried to give them the benefit of the doubt because we want local businesses to succeed. But, we are capitulating. The restaurant and bar staff lack customers relationship skills almost entirely. We tried to go there and have a good time, but they just weren't up for it. I hope they get it dialed in at some point.

Re: “Noodles & Company

Haha! My name is Jaclyn Grossfield and I work in public relations at Noodles & Company. We think the same thing about our Web site, and we're actually in the process of rebuilding now. Thank you for naming us 'Best Noodle Bowl' for the fourth year in a row. Again, I totally agree with you that, "nothing tastes better than hot, saucy noodles on a crappy day."

Re: “Noodles & Company

Love the mix and match option that is their menu. Lot's of food for a great price. Thumbs up for the good ol' American mac 'n' cheese and their Asian noodle dishes (in all their varieties).

Re: “The Pantry Restaurant

GREAT FOOD...Never a problem with the wait staff, they have always been great.

Re: “The Pantry Restaurant

Incredibly rude waitstaff. Experienced poor behavior on more than one occasion. Will never eat there again. They are certainly lucky there isn't much else nearby otherwise they'd be out of business instead of thriving on poor attitude and behavior.

Re: “The Pantry Restaurant

Awesome food! Sometimes in the summer you might have to wait a little bit it is worth it. Oh and did I forget to tell you about the cute town it is in? Awesome place to take the family.

Re: “Coquette's Bistro & Bakery

I was recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy (celiac disease) and it's been kind of a nightmare trying to find a restaurant with appetizing gluten-free fare. Following my first meal at Coquette Creperie, I realized that this gluten allergy business wasn't going to be so bad after all. The food is absolutely delicious and the variety of tastes from crepe to crepe never allow boredom to enter into the equation. The atmosphere is inviting and comfortable and the staff have always been friendly and extremely attentive.

Re: “Coquette's Bistro & Bakery

i was afraid to try a "gluten free" crepe but my partner is very intolerant of the gooey stuff so I gave in...glad I did. kinda magical filling in my bada bing (spicy italian sauce and great sausages) and we even had to try a dessert with fruit filling..a few cocktails later we realized we just didn't want to leave the cool comfort zone. ..who needs gluten anyway

Re: “Coffee Cup Café

Been there several times. Clientele a bit rough, lots of F bombs. Food was hit and miss. My egg/sausage sandwich was to die for the first time I went, then never came close in later visits. Burnt toast. How in the hell can a place that's been around this long burn the toast. Their other location in Gleneagles also burns the toast. An amateur operation.

Re: “Rico's Café and Wine Bar

The make your own salad choices are superb. I"m not a big fan of the usual boring green stuff that's normally thrown on the table, so this offering makes my day.... try it with grilled chicken, chick peas, roasted almonds and peppers.... sesame seed dressing to top it off.....hmmmmmmm....I actually walk about a mile from my office to get this for lunch about once every other week.

Re: “Wade's Café

Great, affordable dishes with awesome service! Go now and eat outside before it gets too cold!

Re: “Shuga's

Food, service and atmosphere are all top notch. If you've heard of Shuga's you've heard of their coconut shrimp soup. Order it. The 'boards' are super fun -- a beautiful and delicious array of cheeses, meats, veggies, breads/crackers; fun to share. Dessert is also to die for. Bring your wallet but you'll leave happy.

Re: “Mimi's Cafe

Amazing food! Breakfast and lunch have a wide variety of entrees made with fresh and innovative ingredient combinations. The pistachio-crusted salmon with artichoke ragout and baby potatoes is fantastic and their fruity french toast is delicious. The quaint atmosphere and private booths make for a great lunch for girlfriends.

Re: “PJ's Bistro

We've been to PJ's twice now, and both times we were not disappointed! This is the type of food I grew up eating and loving, cooked by my Hungarian grandma, only better! (sorry, Grandma) Their stuffed cabbage is rich and delicious, the pork cutlet melts in your mouth. I tried the smoked salmon potato pancakes last night and thought I was in heaven. Try the Euro fires with Hungarian goulash ladled over them! YUM! Also, the meatloaf with mushroom gravy and dumplings was absolutely wonderful. I can't wait for family to come visit so I can take them to PJ's!
