Re: “Sermet's Downtown

I feel kinda bad because I have written so many bad reviews of eateries recently, but this is actually what prompted me to review. I had a yucky meal at Sermet's the other night, however, they did make it right. The short of it is, is that I ordered the Calamari, and it was absolutely dis-gust-ing. My friends said it was good, but even she took a bite and said "wow - whoever cooked this is really off tonight" It was bland, chewy, and tasted old and frozen.
I then ordered a main course, which I did not like either. There was rocky sand in the vegetables, seriously. In the end, the waitress comped the food, which I didnt ask for, but which I thought was appropriate. I wound up tipping her what the food would have been anyhow, because I thought it was right to do that. And she was nice about it.
I would go back, yes...I somehow sense that this was an off night. Maybe a line cook who broke up with his GF, or who is just having a shitty day. It happens.
Nice hot, toasted bread, good olive oil. Nice cocktails. Cute hostess (tho she could smile)
Just keepin' it real.

Oh and I just read the review by Rokko...its interesting that this person also thought it might have been an "off day" as well. hmmm

Re: “Sermet's Downtown

Boring food. I ordered the roasted tomato soup, which had a decent flavor but was a bit one-note: creamy. I also ordered the grilled salmon salad; the "poached pears" were just pears out of can.
