It depends upon you definition of quality: my wife and I went to the Sovereign on a Friday evening. Upon entering, we were greeted by the Swiss hostess herself, only to be grilled about who we were and where we worked, and subsequently seated at a large linen covered table -- with a Plexiglas cover. This tackiness wouldnt be so bad, except when we opened the menu and perused the prices \r
If you just graduated from high school, enjoy an abundance of extra money, and have never been to a restaurant with your sweetheart, the vague appearance of some sort of class may be your style. However my wife, a native German, has had identical food at her college cafeteria, down to the small, chipped entree plates. The acclaimed house salad turned out to be a standard iceberg lettuce tossed in a Publix-type Italian vinaigrette. The Chilean grouper, more than just slightly overcooked, made us wonder whether it was indeed fresh, or rather, previously frozen, thawed, breaded and pan fried. The vegetable side one small potato, half a tomato and a single piece of broccoli to be precise - was identical in both taste and presentation with the nest of fresh garden vegetables that accompanied the garlic-balsamic chicken fillet. But even the strong taste of garlic was unable to vail the fact that something tasted odd about that chicken which we asked the waitress to return. The hostess appeared later, though not to inquire why we had returned the meal, but to state that she tasted the chicken herself and had found nothing wrong with it. In addition she sidelined us with another suggestion. Indeed, why did my wife order the cheapest main course when really, she should have had the veal? \r
In conclusion, we might expect such overpriced food and attitude in Switzerland, but not in Gainesville.
Cons: No parking, poor service, poor quality
