Bellis Bistro & Spirits

Won't go back...

Went to Belli’s Bistro & Spirits with a group of fellow diners. I started at the bar as I wanted a drink first. They have specialty drinks, but I was immediately told by the bartender that I couldn’t order anything with mint as they were out. Mind you, most of their specialty drinks come with mint. She did mention that they did have someone out shopping for it, so I asked how long it would be. She said that she would text them to find out how long. I proceeded to wait at the bar, and the bartended never acknowledged me again or told me how long the wait would be, or even asked me if I wanted a different drink. After about 15 minutes of waiting, I finally asked her how long the wait would be, and she told me about another 10 minutes. I said that I would wait as I was there for dinner.
So, moving on to dinner, there were a total of 6 of us. There was only one server for the whole dining room and the server seemed a bit frazzled. Our table seemed to always be the last she came to unless we flagged her down. The food was nothing special, but at least edible. I had a burger, but I really don’t think they made it in house. Others at the table were not impressed with the food either. It took forever to get the food, yet others who came after us got service and their food before us. There were no apologies, no asking if anyone wanted another drink. It was just lacking in service and food quality overall. Would I go back? No….
