Haven't read a lot about Majolica in Phoenixville on this board. Tried it Saturday night after a 3 week wait for a table. I really wanted to like it, however I found it disappointing. The place is attractive, the service is friendly, and the food is good. I just wasn't thrilled with the place or the food. The red wine glasses are too small. They were okay for the red sancerre we'd brought, but wouldn't have worked well with a heavier red. I remember the waitress saying she'd snagged the last two red wine glasses for us. There was a glass front cabinet full of them. Maybe they were just for display? Also, when we were only half way through our entrees, she asked if we were finished. Throughout the meal, there were too frequent interruptions to ask if everything was okay. I always find this annoying. On to the food. My S.O. had sea bass which was okay but bland. I had gnocchi which were served with cubes of pumpkin and apple. It was very appropriate for autumn but not particularly flavorsome. Desserts, though, were very good. I had a hazelnut cake with coffee ice cream. The ice cream was particularly delicious. I don't know if they make it there. S.O. had a very good chocolate souffle with tarragon cream.
