In business, there’s nothing like a great location. For a restaurant with a great location, there’s nothing like mediocre food.
Since Cafe Bordeaux re-opened under new management a few weeks ago, there have been a few rumblings about the operation. Now, a review has appeared on Anthony Finta’s Virgin-islands-On-Line Web site and it’s not good.
AdamK wrote, “Over all the view is breath-taking and the atmosphere is very nice, but to us the food was just average (about Applebee's quality) for $24-$32 a plate.” But beyond the food disappointment, there was the service. AdamK says his party of four got a bill for almost $400.
“While we were going over it I pointed out that we were double charged for almost every dish and there were things on the list we never even ordered,” he wrote. “They begrudgingly apologized by saying "Things happen." We payed them the correct amount and left on good terms.”
But, he added, “I overheard another group complain about the same thing before we left.”
On the other hand, there’s a rave review of Chateau Bordeaux on Yelp.com. Mindy S. rated the reopened eatery five stars. Her most recent visit was in December, 2009.
Anyone else have something to say about CB? Comment here.
