My prior reviews of this restaurant showed my one hundred percent satisfaction. I'm afraid that was not the case this time. I ordered a grilled cheese on their delicious whole grain bread - my favorite! But when my sandwich was placed before me, it was on sourdough bread. I realize mistakes happen, so I asked the waiter to redo my order. He said, "Oh, we're out of the whole grain. I'm sorry I didn't tell you. This is the only bread we have today." I asked why he didn't tell me… And he said, he forgot that all the whole grain was used on Sunday and it was being reordered today [which was Thursday].
Truthfully, I did not enjoy my sandwich - and wondered about how a restaurant manager can run out of something as simple as bread on a Sunday, and not reorder it until Thursday. AND - I do fault the waiter for not coming back to our table to let me know they were out of the bread I requested.
If I did not have a guest with me, whose sandwich (and the correct one!) was brought to her the same time as my sandwich - I would have reordered. But I didn't want her food to grow cold.
Needless to say, while this might seem a small problem - and certainly doesn't negate the good food and reliable service I usually get at 5th and Wine - it literally left a bad taste in my mouth.
