Having never tried Atlas Global Bistro, I quickly grabbed the Groupon when it was available. I heard many good reviews and I was excited to try a place I had not been to yet.
My wife and I set out for brunch this morning with high hopes. To sum it all up.. the service was excellent but the food sucked!!!!!
My wife ordered the Cubano Omelet and I ordered the Steak Benedict. The space is nice and the waitress really was very good so we were seriously shocked when the food was so disappointing.
My wife's omelet was filled with pork that tasted like the outer slimy layer of pork fat. The potatoes were goodish (nothing exceptional) and although the menu touted fried plantains with the omelet, they were nowhere to be found. When we asked about the plantains we were told the plantains they got in were not ripe and could not be served. Wouldn't that have been nice to know up front? And when a customer specifically notices the missing fruit, shouldn't you at least offer to bring another fruit in it's place? NO..neither of these things happened. The toast was freezing cold too.
Moving on to my dish, the Steak Benedict. If you like hard boiled eggs on the top of steak then it's the dish for you. I have had better poached eggs at Big Boy. The eggs were so overcooked they litterally were hard boiled eggs.
To answer the question...no, we didn't complain because after seeing the response when we asked about the missing plantains it seemed like a useless cause and neither of us would have wanted anything else. I thought the hard boiled eggs benedict must be a fluke but looking at the table next to us, their eggs were the same way.
I just would have expected so much more from AGB. Glad we had a Groupon at least the unsatisfying brunch only cost us $ 20 plus tip. I don't see us returning anytime soon....BLEH!!!
