Very Poor Breakfast at Farm at the Grove

rednyellow | Sep 2, 2008 11:56 AM

I tried the Farm of Beverly Hills at the Grove for breakfast today. It was bad. I thought the decor was pretty lame, faux farm barn with a smattering of tools along the walls. Fairly typical light breakfast fare on the menu. Bland room, bland food. I asked about the crepe filled with scrambled eggs and mushrooms w/ a "champagne hollendaise" sauce. The waiter said it was amazing. Hum... I don't expect him to say anything on the menu is awful, but since he said it was amazing, I ordered it along with a side of bacon. Food arrived in good time, bacon was room temp, I sent it back. While waiting for bacon to return, I tried the crepe. Really bad. The crepe was thick and gummy, not at all what I expect from a crepe. The filling was mostly all egg and totally bland. I tried adding Tabasco, didn't really help. The sauce was an acrid mess. I ate about a quarter of it and then the bacon reappeared. It was now warm and limp. I'm guessing it was nuked. I ate the bacon and moved on to the potatoes. They were reddish, I'm guessing paprika, and otherwise flavorless and cold. I very rarely need to salt food in a restaurant. I try to cook low sodium at home, so food is typically salty enough for my taste. The food here was just plain bland. I pushed the plate away and ate the fruit cup that came with it. Several times waiters walked by. Not once did anyone ask me how it was. I'd think with a barely touched plate pushed away they might wonder if it was ok or not. Finally I just asked for the check. When you consider the price, a bit over $18 with an iced tea, it was really bad. I wont go back.
