H2O Cafe

We stopped at the H2O Cafe for a late evening snack the other night be were sorely disappointed.

First, the good. Nice atmophere, we sat outside right on the sidewalk and were able to people watch, that was very nice. For an appetizer we had the fish tacos. They were very good, nice and cruchy deep-fried fish, all that a fish taco should be. The accompaniments were a very good pico de gallo--yumm, and a so-so tartar sauce. The tartar sauce tasted very off the shelf, out of the bottle. But it was OK.

The real disappointment was the sandwich we had, called a Venetia, Ciabatta Sandwich. The menu made it sound fantastic: prosciutto, salami, ham, roasted red peppers, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato and olive oil. But the reality was that it tasted like an ordinary ham sandwich--I could not taste the salami or prosciutto. I've had better ham sandwiches from a vending machine at a fraction of the cost--this one was $12.95!

So it was a very uneven experience here, but mostly just blah. The food was not bad, but overpriced for what it was. I probably would not go back and certainly would not recommend it to anyone unless you only wanted a few drinks, the atmosphere--sitting outside and people watching--was good.
