My entree was Seafood Glass Noodles which had shrimp and crab stir-fried with glass noodles and mixed vegetables which included broccoli, carrots, celery, red pepper. This was also very good and much drier than were the vegetables. It did take a little mixing to get everything mixed together well but I didn't mind. I will admit that while I am not an expert with chopsticks, when they are offered to me, I will try to use them. Using them with the Bo Bia was easy but other than with the crispy tofu, I didn't really try with the vegetable dish. With this dish, it was easy. I just wound a bite up with the glass noodles and had my way with it. The crab was shredded, the shrimp were small, and the vegetables were firm and bite-sized. It tasted good and was fun to eat.
While I had the vegetables and the seafood dish at the table at the same time and I did try both (I didn't eat them separately), I did finish the vegetables first. After I finished the vegetables and while I was eating the noodles, my waiter came close and while he was waiting on the table next to me, he picked up my vegetable plate and my menu. After I finished the noodles though, the plate sat at my table for about ten minutes and after it was picked up, it took a few minutes for the waiter to come to ask if I was interested in dessert. It would have been convenient to have the menu at this time because the dessert menu was also on the main menu. The waiter did remember what was on the dessert list and I ordered a Passionfruit Torte which was served with fresh fruit and topped with mint. While this wasn't bad, it was probably the least successful dish of the meal. It tasted good and the fresh fruit (except for the cantaloupe) was nice but it wasn't spectacular. I finished my dish and again waited for my bill.
By this time, I was a bit irritated and did actually think about leaving without paying. I did have a discount coupon that they already had in their possession but it wouldn't have covered the entire bill. While I was irritated and felt ignored, I did stick around for my bill. While they did not overtly acknowledge their lack of service overtly, when I received my bill, the only thing that I had to pay was tax because everything else was covered. Up until this point, there was no way that I was going to return to this restaurant despite the fact that I really liked the food and the decor. The bill seemed to me to be a tacit acknowledgement that they screwed up. With this, I would definitely consider coming again but they would have a very short leash. If I again received the level of service that I had received, I would walk and not return.
