Anguilla Restaurant & Dining Reviews

Blanchard's 07/07/2006
Reviewers Rating: Fair
The food: excellent. We had the lobster cake appetizer, the three fish Carribean sampler and the shrimp. The food was probably the best on the island all week, and we ate at a lot of places. So what was wrong? In a word, service. First, we had to e-mail twice before getting a response. Then at the restaurant, we were not even verbally greeted, just lead to a table. Not a big deal, but then, we were ignored for 30 minutes. Finally someone came to take our dinner order, and we said we would like to order drinks first. He then just walked away? Couldn't take our drink order? Finally someone else comes over, takes our drink order and leaves. About ten minutes later the first waiter comes by to take our dinner order (again). We explain we still would like to have a drink first. The drinks come, we have been seated for 45 minutes. We then order our food, as our waiter has now asked 3 times. Our food comes out almost immediately! When he serves it, he then takes away the bread basket and leaves. We ask for bread back. He nods and disappears. We eat our dinner, still no bread. Finally flag down manager to ask for bread back. He nods. We finish a rather leisurely dinner. Our waiter brings our bread back. We enjoy a piece for dessert. The wine list is extensive and high priced, (4 times US retail) but fair for old-world wines. We had a delicious sancerre. Some of the US wines were just weird. There were some "grocery store" type wines like Snoqualamie sauvignon blanc and Castlerock cab, retailing for $6.95 and $9.95 U.S. for $50 and $70. Please! We did not have dessert, and the bill was $270, the highest price we paid all week. I feel that at these prices, everything should be just about perfect. It did not live up to the hype, although we did have a good time laughing at the foibles. We did see other tables around us getting excellent service by other waiters, just not us! Glad we went, atmosphere is lovely, food excellent, but because of the service issues combined with the price, we would not go again.
