Gjelina has always been one of my favorite restaurants due to tasty vegetable dishes & incredible pizza & delicious desserts. All was well this time until we got to the dessert which was not worthy of the cost @ $12 for a small parfait. The final disappointment was the automatic service charge of 20% which did not exist the last time we dined there. Sadly, I won't be dining there again.

It is impossible to get a table at gjlena so when I finally did I was so excited. However, upon our reservation we had to wait inside in the corner for about 20 minutes before our table was ready. There was no room to hold their guests while they waited for their table. Upon being seated our server never introduced himself. The lighting was bad so you can't see the menu which is in small print many people were taking out their cell phones to read it. We ordered a pizza for the table and each ordered a dish. The food was good, but not worth everything else

Do no like the mandatory 20% service charge when the service was mediocre. Food was OK for what I have experienced to be usually very good.

We ate there on Friday July 1st, 2016. The terrace was dark and badly lit, we all had to use our cell phone flashlights to read the menu which seemed to bother other diners.

Service was appalling. Rarely seen such careless waiters. They seemed to purposely ignore us while they were chatting with their buddies (other diners) and we had to request the bill THREE times before it was brought to us by the manager.

Unfortunate as the food was not as bad as the service.

The food was good, but the portions were small, left hungry. The side of bacon they served us was only fat, gross. The manager came by and even acknowledged as much, took it off the bill, but I think they could have offered more, something in place. The coffee was sour, but I barely finished mine as there was a red unexplained crumb in it (nothing we ate was red, and this was breakfast. The blueberry lemon ricotta pancakes were great and so was the atmosphere.
