Kalamata on Lakeshore- Unbelievably Terrible

food face | Nov 5, 2012 07:53 AM

Upon reading good reviews on the brunch, I was beyond disappointed. After a beings seated we were freezing. I don’t mean a bit cold....FREEZING. We realized that everyone in the restaurant had their jackets on. We were seated by a massive window with an incredible draft. We asked to be moved. The waitress with blonde curly hair was unwelcoming and slow moving. She did not help us with moving tables. As other customers watched, we moved all our cutlery, plates and condiments to another table. With 3 tables, she lollygagged and took forever to do anything and didn’t seem to pay attention to anyone at all. This server clearly hates her job. Who can blame her?
The restaurant itself is creepy. This place is weird. It’s goddy and has a strange vibe to it. The decor is completely dated. It’s as if you can tell that it’s had its day in the sun and should have closed down in the 90’s. So depressing.
On to the food. Poached eggs were raw. Slimy mushrooms and unmelted cheese. The worst home fries I’ve ever eaten. Frozen tiny tater tots with buckets of seasoned salt on them. My friend’s gyro meal was inedible. Pre-packaged square previously frozen gyro meat. Also, insanely salty. For a Greek restaurant to push frozen gyro meat is really disgusting. It came with a limp salad and cold potatoes. The gyro platter came with a tiny dot of tzatziki and no pita was anywhere to be seen. It cost $14. Our meal was very expensive (almost $30 with tax and tip) considering how terrible everything was. This was undoubtedly one of the worst restaurant experiences I’ve had in Toronto.
