When my party of four entered the restaurant, we were impressed by the starched linen and the old-style feel of the place, and our waiter (while very slow in getting to us for the drinks order) was friendly and helpful. He guided us through the menu options, and brought the wine promptly (an excellent house red). Our starters, all of them cold mezze, were attractive and tasty but the big disappointment came when our main courses arrived - very small, cold earthenware dishes barely covered by lukewarm food. All of us had the same issue, and the sense that the food had been pre-prepared and bunged in the microwave for a few minutes to order. We even wondered if there was a chef downstairs, or just someone pressing buttons. Maybe this would have been OK were we in a hurry to get to a show and they had left the food in the microwave a minute or so longer, but we wanted to sit and enjoy the food and each other's company. We decided not to bother sending our food back (I am squeamish about doing this), but we were all very disappointed. When the first bill came, they forgot to include the wine. When the amended bill came, they had charged us twice for bottled water. The waiter was pleasant and apologetic throughout, but we won't be returning.
