Chocolate Indulge & A Restaurant Review: The Ground Floor
We had a triple date on Friday and we were going to go to Champa Bistro, we get there and they are closed. The number is disconnected, no message or anything, the website is still totally active but it's closed. I'm not too sure if it's a temporary thing or not but either way we had to find somewhere else. We talked for a bit, tried calling a couple of places to get reservations but we ended up trying The Ground Floor. It's downtown, and well, not that nice on the inside. It looks they are tried to redo it without gutting the whole place which can sometimes work but I feel in this case it still looks pretty traditional (when I think they might have been going for modern).
As far as I know you can't smoke indoors anywhere in the city (restaurants I mean) but I kept smelling smoke.
Our waiter was fun and the food came pretty quick. I had the club house which was great. Marshall had the ribs which, well I've made better at home. Everyone else seemed to be pretty content with their meals but I can't say anyone would say "You have to check out The Ground Floor".
On a scale of 1-10 (1- Horrible, it should be closed down!! and 10- Amazing, would go back again and again) I give it a 5- Average, I wouldn’t go back, but at least I tried it!
This was the Chocolate Indulge dessert. I don't know if you can tell how big it is here but it was huge!! We didn't get through a lot of it (and that was me and Marshall sharing) and to be honest it wasn't that great. It was my least favorite one so far that I have tried. It was pretty dry, I don't know if that's because it was flour-less but it just wasn't that great. Quantity didn't make up for quality in this case.
