Frankie’s at Criterion

I have just come home from a most dissapointing meal at this restaurant.

The sevice was freindly and polite. the food awful. we ordered a beetroot salad to start. the beetroot was paper thin and had been sitting on the plate for quite some time - I had to peel it off, the green salad which was supposed to garnish it, was in fact a few leaves out of a packet - not a fresh one at that. we ordered smoked haddock as our mains - when it came the people on the next table complained to the waiter that when they had tried to order it there was none left. after i had tasted mine i wished that the waiter had told us the same. it smelt stale, tasted insipid and wasn't helped by lumpy mash and a not very pretty poached egg on top. all in all a total waste of a lot of money. shame - the room is very ornate and we were expecting better from it. the next table were not impressed by the tiny helpings either. Sorry, you'll have to try harder with the cooking or hire a chef that can cook and serve fresh food.
