Incredulous Cobras bashers: I heard your complaints.
A few months ago I read some highly negative reviews on Cobras & Matadors newer location in the former Hillmont address. Pretty scathing and enough to convince wife and I to consider other neighborhood places first. Then last week, we decided to meet some friends there for a Saturday night meal. Whatever concerns I had arising from previous chow posts, were effectively rendered null and void. No, we didn't try everything to rate execution in the kitchen, but in sum, the restaurant was far from the disappointment I had previously read about. In fact, all four of us enjoyed the meal greatly. Each dish was flavorful and satisfying and the staff had just the right degree of attentiveness. Not to doubt the sincerity of many of you articulate and reasonable hounders, seems as though improvements have been made, (p'haps due to the influence of this excellent and incomparable community?). It ain't Lucques or AOC, but that's not what we were expecting.. and with this in mind, we were quite satisfied. I encourage another try.
