Our visit was an attempt to try Nicola's as it was next door to our hotel. We read the reviews and it weighed on the side of poor. We went anyway. We ordered our meals and appetizers.
The appetizers were polished off quick and dinner was served. Our main coarse for our family of four was not finished as the meals were not to our standards for a Mediterranean cuisine for the price of the servings. Our daughter could not bite through her green beans and mashed potatoes were lumpy. It was not offered to her but later we confirmed that she had choice of potatoes or mashed. Unfortunately the mashed was brought the table.
We read about the extra fee for pop (soda), yes we are from Canada. we stayed with water only. The only meal taken home was pizza all our other meals were not edible. Therefore not to our satisfaction.
As a result of our wait staff and poor food quality we left only a $7.00 tip on our $118.00 check.
As we were leaving we were met at the door by our server who complained that it was less than 10% of check. Never in our lives have we had to justify our reason for leaving a tip if any was even deserved. She commented that we did not say anything during our meal. We new it was a mistake to try this restaurant and we wanted out of there asap.
We mentioned to her she did get a tip but unfortunately due to poor food quality and service we tipped as to the experience. Our experience was TERRIBLE!. We wanted to discus our experience to the manager or owner about our door front encounter with his service staff.
That will be part 2 of the experience. “Rudest Experience in Lake Placid”......Please read the reviews as this is a reason they are only ranked 74 out of 93 in Lake Placid.
