I was very disappointed in Bistro Vida, especially since it was recommended to me by a friend.
First, the service was horrible. Having worked in the food industry, I understand the stress when you don't have enough wait staff (at least it appeared that they were short staffed), but there is no need to be rude while waiting on us and make me have to go over to get my bill and then be even more ruder, especially since they and they weren't that busy.
Second, I ordered a croque monsieur that was awful. It wasn't even on the bread specified on the menu, that would have made it more tasty and didn't have the melted cheese on top (plus the cheese inside was hardly melted). Honestly, how hard is it to make this sandwich, especially for a French restaurant?
I definitely won't be going back.
Oh, but one good thing - I saw they had a Tobin James wine - unfortunately given that I went there during work hours, I couldn't partake - perhaps if I had, I would have had a better experience!
