I have always thought the dining room at Bonta was one of the loveliest anywhere. It is elegant and intimate, with its use of wood, paints walls and the charming fireplace in the middle of the room.
We have had mixed feelings about the food, and on this visit were completely dissatisfied.
We began with an antipasto, which was heavy on the artisan cheeses, and light on the vegetables.
The entrees were a great disappointment, which we both felt were of the quality one would expect at a wedding reception, my dining partner ordered the pancetta stuffed chicken breast, which was a pre-made breast stuffed with breadcrumbs and chopped pancetta. It was dry, plain and very boring.
I ordered a medium sirloin with a reduction sauce, and when I cut into it, the meat was not even rare, it was purple! It was served with fingerling potatoes and broccoli rabe, very uninspired.
My dining companion ordered a drink, and was served something different, and when he requested it be returned, the bartender informed him that the requested liquor was not available, so he substituted!
A once wonderful restaurant has become run of the mill, how sad
