Sacred cow is right. Our chef roomie said it was overpriced and unspectacular, but we went anyway, and sure enough, we were underwhelmed. The waiter was condescending and kept confusing our request for no eggs as a request for no dairy. It took him a trip to the kitchen to get info, and even then, we were confused. The tables were packed together. The food lacked: the portions were a tad small, the seasonings didn't hang together, and the flavor combinations were just not quite right. Good food is good food, and this wasn't it. I've been vegetarian for 35 years, and I guess I've been spoiled by the fabulous veggie cooks among my friends. The view is nice, though, which is good because the decor was very plain, dominated by posters of vegetables done unartistically. \r
The first appetizer is a tiny dish of oily toasted almonds. We ordered 3 other appetizers. The cheese plate had only one kind of cheese (camembert?) but it was correctly ripe. The Sampler plate had hummus and a filo-cheese wrap (only one) that were good. The spinach salad was edible. We then ordered 4 entrees. The brochette is shish kebab of veggies and tofu on a bed of couscous and sauce, but the tofu just tasted like burned plain tofu. The ravioli were limp and flat with a green filling that just needed something. The goat cheese pizza was pretty good--actually the crust was light and crisp and the toppings were good--but it was small. The so-called curry barely registered on the ""curry"" flavor scale, although it had coconut milk in it, always a plus. The rice with the curry was crunchy underdone--a cardinal sin with rice, and totally unexpected in a restaurant of this reputation. I wish people wouldn't attempt ""ethnic"" food unless they understand it--or at least know how to cook rice.\r
We didn't even want to risk ordering a dessert. This place gets points for using local sources, but since when is an egg a vegetable?
Pros: View, local sources
Cons: Condescending, uninformed waiter, food not up to snuff, not enough of it
