This past Wednesday I had the chance to dine at, @fiorellinosnackbar
which is owned by @massimomtl
This was my very first time at @fiorellinosnackbar
Many times I came across positive reviews of the restaurant. Wether it was on the newspaper, online and through @instagram
as well. Having said all that, I was quite exited to finally try it for myself.
Unfortunately, I was not pleased with our dinner. I had higher expectations and they did not meet. The ambiance in its self is lively and lovely. The ambience music was very loud and unpleasant. The service was good, however our waitress left without notifying us. Unprofessional?
About the food... I found the quality to be just “ok” my warm mushroom salad with a hazelnut dressing, arugula and fresh Parmesan was very “blah!” The mushrooms were tough and rubbery, the dressing, I couldn’t taste much of it. It did have very strong salty taste from the Parmesan. The arugula didn’t taste fresh. It was more on the wilted side.
Portobello mushrooms in general are meaty, tasty, tender and flavourful. Sadly, These mushrooms tasted more on the mushy side.
I find that @fiorellinosnackbar
is a very popular place for those that enjoy socializing, being loud, being recognized and posh. Waiters often socializing with the clients quite loudly. Which is fine and I respect that. However, I did not go to @fiorellinosnackbar
to show that I was there. I simply went there for the food, to spend quality time with my best friend and be able to converse. Which was a challenge due to the very loud music.
Oh and the TV at the bar at a posh restaurant, hmmmm! I’m not sure about that.
Although this review of mine doesn’t come across as positive. I will be posting more photos of our dinner that did please our palette. Stay tuned!
