We went to this place for our wedding anniversary. I have heard such great things about this place that I was pretty excited to try it.
The verdict?? 3 stars out of 5…
The food was very very ... average... which was a great disappointment considering how much people have hyped it up.
My appetizer was so unmemorable that I almost forgot what it was until my husband reminded me that he tried it and did not like it. It was a lentil dish… hm… no comment. I ordered the duck for my main course and to be honest, I make a better duck on a good day, and one at least on-par on an average day (sorry chef). I expected Gaddi's duck to be much better than mine, is that too much to ask?
My husband had better luck than I did with his appetizer. He went with the safe route and order foie gras followed by lamb for main. Again nothing special… sometimes I buy a nice piece of foie gras plus lamp rack from City Super on lazy Sundays and cook them at home. And I think the ones from my kitchen taste just as good.
The service was great! The waiters were attentive and knowledgeable.
The décor was SO French-ballroom-from-the-1800’s… a bit stuffy for my taste but I can see why some people would like it. It’s quite and you are far from other tables. The best thing that we had was a complimentary passion fruit macaroon at the end of the meal. It was just wonderful (my favorite thing in the evening actually)
