We went to Cesco for the second time, to celebrate our daughter's birthday. From the word go, service, food and overall dining experience were marginal. I initially wrote the following (brief) review for OpenTable, but they still have it as pending over a month later. So I have decided to post the original review here, with some additional explanation:
"Spotty though well-meaning service. Food just barely above average and completely unsatisfactory for a restaurant in this price bracket. Desserts clearly not fresh; one had to be sent back as it had gone bad. Won't be returning."
"Spotty though well-meaning" service meant that two waiters appeared to be quite vocally at odds as to who should be taking care of our table. Inappropriate within earshot of diners.
"Food barely above average" included dishes that looked like the ads for what is been at Olive Garden.
"Desserts clearly not fresh" saw the kitchen deliver a slice of cake that was practically frozen, and a portion of Tiramisu which had gone rancid. No comment from management or even the kitchen when the dish was returned.
"Won't be returning" means that there is so much competition for my dining out dollars in Bethesda/Potomac/Rockville that I will not bother with Cesco again.
