    Service was great. All the food was great. The cheesecake was square... it made me uncomfortable because it was not at all what I expected. It tasted great. But it was square. 2 stars.

    Side Of Pickles Wasn't What They Expected

    From a former Redditor:

    "Don't order the side of pickles. They aren't the type of pickles you think they are". Idiots.

    Were they expecting a jar of Vlasic's at a place that makes their own charcuterie?

    They Went To The Wrong Restaurant

    From Redditor u/MostMust:

    Wasn't the right place.

    I'm not joking we were 1 stared for not being the establishment she was supposed to go to. Not even a sister store or a chain just a different place in another part of town with a somewhat similar name.

    Shepard's Pie Had Weird Tasting 'Ground Beef'

    From a former Redditor:

    Our Shepard's Pie had "the weirdest tasting ground beef I've ever had" That's because it's lamb. Like it says right there on the menu.

    We just got a 3 star because we use latex gloves and the person is allergic. Said she based the review off what friends told her.
