Am I the only one that has had a bad experience at A16? I am willing go back and try it again but am having hard time after my dinner there. I had dinner with 4 other hounds and all of us came away with a bad taste in our mouth. The pizza was burnt, dry and had very little flavor. The salasd were tiny and slightly brown. the three shared entrees were bland.The Burrata was the only redeaming factor in the food section. The person who ordered the wine is very knowedable about italian wine so it was not about lack of palate.Our first bottle of wine was corked and the waiter tried to argue with us, when he finally brought another bottle it to was off. The waiter was not apologetic nor very friendly from the beginning. Is this just an off night and I should go back? Or have others had the same experience?
