Dinner at Toba - dissapointing

Mintycake | Sep 19, 2008 06:50 AM

Last night a friend and I went for dinner at Toba. I know that a lot of people on this board like it (although most posts are brunch related).

The room itself is very nice and we liked the ambiance. We also noticed that the service was very friendly and attentive.

I started with the calamari salad which had a honey glaze on it. Unfortnately, this made the greens underneath very soggy and the calamari itself was like tire rubber, and the sauce too sweet.

My friend had the watermelon and feta salad which was very nice and light tasting-.

We both ordered the gnocchi with sausage for a main and my friend (who is Italian) said the sauce was dissapointing - very basic red sauce with some crumbled sausage in it. The gnocchi themselves were quite fresh and plump but this dish did not WOW me. I can make that kind of sauce at home.

When dessert came around, we were informed that 3 of the 5 listed were not available, but they were substituting two new desserts. None really appealed so we skipped dessert. We were pretty full from the gnocchi anyway (it was a decent sized portion).

Overall, I don't think I'll return for dinner. But at least now I can say I tried it.
