Had dinner at Falai this Sat. Have wanted to go since it opened, even before the Bruni review. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but left somewhat disappointed. The space was lovely. Food was good, overall, but neither memorable nor phenomenal. Service was perfectly adequate, but failed to show any sort of spark that might make me want to return, and the wait for wine was unacceptable (though it was a busy Saturday night, so I'll cut them some slack). Definitely not a space built for large groups, though I guess that is not really their fault. All in all, a good, but hardly great, dinner. Will I go back? Sure, if someone I know really wants to go. If not, there are plenty of places I want to try, and old places I want to return to, so I probably won't return any time soon.
Full review on my foodblog below, if you are interested.
