Cracks in the facade! 11/22/2009

I am not writing this as a patron of Ti Amo, but as an ex-employee. I feel it necessary to express the nature of work relations regarding the owners and particularly the restaurant wait staff. Upon completion of college I wanted to work there for a bit of extra money a few nights a week. I had an air of idealism about the owners business paradigm around local and organic food and found it to be an inspired example for other local businesses in the community. The reality as an employee their became immediately disconcerting. I have worked in a half dozen fine dining establishments in south Florida and the California bay area in particular, and have never been treated so poorly and disrespectfully in my life. I found the owner('s) to have a complete disrespect towards the staff on many levels. I have never been fired from a job in my life, and was arbitrarily let go on account of one inebriated individual professing bad service, while the rest of the table profusely was apologetic for his behavior. Without any open dialogue (despite my attempt to explain) or forum between myself and the owner, I was told to basically permit and reward his outburst and bow to it. I was promptly fired after this one instance, never having any problems with customers prior. I felt belittled, disrespected, and treated as I was completely expendable to a restaurant I worked diligently at. This was expressed to me by others working with me that they also felt the owners portray an air of irrational superiority over the workers who provide them a necessary function to their restaurants operation. This is in direct contradiction to a paradigm of empowering the health and vitality of local systems. I will not support this establishment any more, nor will I urge others to do so, irregardless of their food, until the wait staff in particular is treated like human beings and not just a commodity that can be tossed aside arbitrarily. Cons: Wait Staff Treatment more

New owners Greatly improved cuisine and service 6/25/2007

New ownership has given this great space food and service to match. The owners of Mildreds in Gainesville have updated the decor and menu with contemporary dishes and ambience. The Flat bread pizzas $9 and the Gulf of Mexico Grouper $21 are excellent. The wine list is more extensive and maybe one of the best values around. Highly recommended Pros: Great for business or date-ambience and service supreme more

Poor Sovereign Quality 9/16/2006

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 \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 \r In conclusion, we might expect such overpriced food and attitude in Switzerland, but not in Gainesville. Cons: No parking, poor service, poor quality more

This Is French Cuisine With Fine Service 2/2/2006

I love this place! Like a traditional european experience. The salad wz fresh; prepared @ tableside. The Chateaubrian for 2 was delicious! It's served with lovely roasted veggies. Dessert z always good. Prices are high; but compared to NY; it's a bargain! Only bad thing z bathroom. Made 4 paper-thin-physiqued men & women. Restaurant z hot z heck n the summer. Dine only in winter. Pros: ambiance, food preparation, service Cons: tends to b too warm, too small bathroom more

Canned Food, Cold Turkey & Rude Waiters 12/6/2005

If your idea is paying $30 for a meal of canned vegetables, packaged rolls, processed turkey, and frozen pie, all billed as gourmet (which is a joke), then go to The Sovereign. To top it off, our waiter was nothing short of being rude, and management seemed to care less. Dinner at McDonald's would have been better. Pros: Historic building Cons: Sub-standard food more
