Chingalle Very Disappointing

Ronnie | | Nov 1, 2000 12:27 AM

Been to Campagna many times and always had a good meal there so when I heard that the same owner was opening Chingalle in my neighborhood I was very excited. But, it was very disappointing. The food was okay but nothing to write home about. Portions are small and some things are definitely overpriced. Guess we should have known that when it said "salmon croquette" that there was no "s" (croquetteS). Not an appetizer to measly croquette and I've made better out a can. The waitstaff wasn't up to par either and when I called to find out the exact address I had to speak to 3 people before someone could give it to me. (How do these people get to work every day??)

Hope this is because it's new and they work the quirks out. I'd love to be able to have a good neigborhood restaurant to go to besides Florent. The vibe is very good, just hope the service and the food get better.
