...was that if you can't say anything nice, then keep your mouth shut. I'm going to largely disregard that advice -- but not entirely. Bottom line up front -- Four of us ate dinner on Saturday night, and two of us were unable -- or unwilling -- to finish what was provided by the kitchen. The chicken and the chicken club were enjoyed (thus the nice part of this review); but the seafood fettucini came in a thin (not alfredo) broth which added little to the taste of the dish; and the chimichanga seemed to be mostly dough (and wasn't fried, unlike every other chimichanga I've ever seen).
So -- meals were 50/50 -- why the poor rating? When asked how the meal was, I gave in to a moment of honesty, and indicated that the chimichanga wasn't very good...at that point, the virtual air conditioning was turned up to meat locker levels, and the remaining interaction with the waitress was limited to her putting down the bill at the far end of the table (which, after I got the bill passed to me, was picked up by another server), and returning the credit card slip -- also at the far end of the table. Nothing said, no "have a good evening, thanks for coming in, sorry about your meal..." -- nothing.
My conclusion from this experience? An off-night for the kitchen, an overly-sensitive server? Perhaps they thought I would try to reclama the cost of the chimi (I don't do that -- if I order something, I pay for it, regardless). Not sure I know, except if I am ever in Orange again, I will find other dining options. Really, this is not so much due to the food (I'm willing to give every restaurant the benefit of the doubt at least once -- and the chicken dishes were pretty good), but due to the attitude, which was noted by every member of our party.
