Little Owl - Short Review

As I mentioned earlier in the week, I had reservations at little owl last night and wanted to thank you for the recommendations and here are my overall thoughts. This is actually my first "official review" so i hope you all enjoy.

First of all, what a cute place. Love the west village and love the intimate (read small) restaurant. We found the service to be very good. Not perfect but very good. A bit rushed at times but overall the servers knew what they were talking about and were friendly.
We loved the food. I started with the bibb salad with beets. As "passe" as beets are these days, the salad was very good. My partner took all of your advice and ate the sliders. Of course i had to taste them and we both felt that they were just a bit dry but again, overall enjoyable.
Our entrees were delicious. I usually dont get pork chops in restaurants becuase they are usually dry as a brick, but taking your recommendations, i tried it and loved it. Very moist. My partner had the crispy chicken and we both actually loved it. I never get chicken in restaurants (i think im a bit more adventurous than that) but the word "crispy" always gets me. It was perfectly cooked (moist) and the chard and sherry were great together. The bacoon torta was another thing. We both didnt care for it. Very oily but good flavor.
We only got one dessert...the rasperry donuts. I loved them. I actually asked for one scoop of ice cream to go along with it. The nutella, vanilla ice cream, rasperry and fried "love" were delicious together. A culinary marvel it wasnt but it sure was delicious.

Overall, I will be back...many times.
