Four Strikes- South Park is OUT.
I just visited South Park for the fourth time...and it was my last. My first visit was great, but after that things went downhill with each sucessive visit. Each time we go, service is very friendly (I'll give them that)...they try hard, but must have too many tables or something b/c the waiters are never that focused/attentive. Every time I've gone they've been out of one or more beers that we wanted to order. The food is also incredibly lackluster, low-quality and mediocre for the price. I've ordered the Mediterranean Cachet twice...the second time they substitute shrimp for scallops without telling me and omitted several key ingredients which left it bland and colorless. This past time I got an Asian Chicken wrap which the waitress said was "sooo good"...ok, if you like chicken DRIPPING with salty, overpowering sauce from a jar. My brother got the Rosemary Chicken...which was stark white (not golden like it had been baked or sauteed" and covered in a gelatinous-looking sauce. It was 15 bucks, but was the plainest, blandest looking thing I'd seen! My father got the soup/sandwich combo. It was 9 dollars, but looked pitiful when searved. Literally a few sliced of deli meat on some toasted Wonderbread....a tiny serving. And the caesar salad was like a 1/4 cup lettuce. They told him the soup was chicken noodle, but it was acutally lentil.....and then they charged us separately for the soup! Overall, I do NOT recommend anyone going there for the food. Everything looks AWESOME on the menu, but you'll be sorely dissapointed with the quality, taste and value when it arrives at your table. I'm sure it's a fun place to grab a beer, IF THEY EVEN HAVE THE BEER YOU WANT!!!
They've Got to be Kidding!.
The first thing you notice is the high prices, which do not equate to paper napkins, homely table settings, and teenage waitresses with exposed belly-button rings. Then comes the dry, overcooked, unsightly food.
This restaurant embarrasses the city of Montclair.
