Ugh that's so annoying. We also didn't have a great allergy experience last time at Cali Grill, but the chef didn't even bother to come out.I talked with the allergy chef about my allergies, and he took me through the buffet. It almost seemed like it was a bother to him. Maybe he had a lot on the go that morning, I'm not sure.
Yeah they only gave Josh two the steak and eggs and the omelet even though I thought they could modify some dishes with GF bread.I didn't have many options for entrees that could be done for all my dietary restrictions, so I went with the steak and eggs.
That's good that your server was paying attention! Our server was awful when we went so it didn't make things much betterIn a demonstration of how excellent a server she really was, she told me that she had listened in to what the allergy chef had told me about dietary restrictions and what I could eat on the buffet, and she remembered me having an intolerance to spinach, so she went back and double-checked with the cooks and found out that the allergy chef had given me misinformation
Josh also didn't like that!N also ordered the lobster omelette which he said was absolutely terrible.
Yuck, my steak was almost raw, and had super overly seasoned eggs.My steak and eggs were just okay. The eggs seemed a little rubbery and overcooked, and the steak wasn't very tender at all.
They used to! But the last time we went they did the same thing and just kind of dumped fruit around it. Actually the last time we went they weren't sure they could even bring a cakeI'm sure there would have been something else they could have done to dress it up a little if they'd wanted to, but I still appreciated the option very much, and it was something a little more creative and different than your standard allergy sorbet.
This also happened to us! It was only one side, but it was the side we were sitting on.One part of our meal that was a bit disappointing was that the observation decks were closed during our entire meal.
Wow, I feel like we had pretty similar experiences there. I'm sorry yours wasn't any better, I was hoping the lack of GF choices and stuff was just a fluke on our trip because it hadn't been that way before.My mediocre entree, coupled with a relatively short list of options for my dietary needs, left me feeling a bit "meh" about it for the price. N had a few more options, and one of his entrees was really stellar, so he came away with more decidedly positive feelings about it.
I'm glad you enjoyed Shula's!The way N described it was that he felt that if he had asked this server for a gun, that he would have brought it to the table with no questions asked.
Ans I know what he means! If you get up during the meal they start folding your napkins into triangles the minute you step away.
This sounds like exactly how Josh describes his side when he has a steak in front of himThe loaded baked potato was...well...a baked potato...with stuff to load it.
