disapponted since the move
I have been eating at SFU for over 5 years, even before they move into the new building. I used to love it & ate there quite frequently, even bringing out of town guests there. I have been back a few times since the move into the new building. Today I went for lunch, with a date, & I found our waitress impatient. There was not a wait, there were tables available, so I am not sure what the rush was. She gave us very little time to peruse the drink menur, & barely gave us time to really examine food menu, which was slightly differen than in the pastt. We oredered drinks, which she delivered & then took the appetizer order. I wasn't ready to order my lunch entree & she seemed totally annoyed. I have worked in the service industry, there appeared to be no rush by looking it around. When she returned, I told her that we needed to slow the pace of everything, & she backed off a little after that. The calamari was the same great dish, as always. I ordered seared tuna for lunch, which used to come plated with wonderful slaw- they served it on a bed of spinach & other vegetables that seemed a soggy miss-matched mess with seared tuna crusted with black seasame seeds. I wouldn't have served them to anyone. Tuna quality was good & cooked properly, but in the current way that they plate & serve it, it was hardly worth $14.50. My companion ordered gumbo & a oyster poyboy. Gumbo was okay & the oysters on the poboy tasted as if they'd been deep fried earlier in the day, & weren't seasoned really well.
I will give SFU one more chance, because everybody is entitled to a bad day. I am not a restaurant snob, but I do understand good service & a good value; on this day I received neither. Try harder SFU, or it's over.
