Bad Meal and Service at Esca

MaldenBoy | Sep 18, 2008 04:20 PM

I flew in from Los Angeles with my Family and on a friends recommendation made a reservation at Esca for dinner. I have to agree with a lot of the enrties I see on this list the place is terribly overated and not worth the effort .I sat there for at least a 1/2 an hour before we even got a waiter to bring us a menu or ask us if we wanted anything to drink.
When he found out we were not drinking alcohol the level of dreadful service went down hill from there . We each had appetizers ,entrees, a split pasta,and dessert we had to ask them to remove plates ,ask them for bread,ask them for water. The food was not up to my expectations either,the crudo was OK ,but the salad was salty,the fish stew under seasoned and bland,the halibut my wife had was dried out and tasteless. Frankly it probably was the worst meal I had all weekend. I should have stuck to the street food
