I give up on Garibaldi's in Oakland

Has this place always been mediocre and I just didn't notice? Saturday marked the LAST time I eat there.

The bartender seemed pissed off that he had to make our party of 3 drinks.

We waited for our food after ordering for 40 minutes, without anyone saying a word to us. Thought our server had left.

The goat cheese appetizer was deep-fried with a weird tempura batter and drowned in honey and carmelized onions.

I had good scallops (5 small for $24) but they were so overpowered by the chunky sweet corn puree that the subtle taste completely disappeared.

With so many other good places on College, so long Garibaldi's.
