Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill



June 10, 2011 – Comments (3)

Back in June of 2008, I did a restaurant review. And a CAPS player named GreenMycon mentioned another restaurant in the same space that I should try out. I finally got a round-tuit and gave it a whirl.

The restaurant is Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill and is a small privately owned chain. I got the "a little bit of everything" plate to give them a try. The food was fresh, attractively arranged and the service very nice.

The problem is that the taste was kinda meh. I like a lot of the stuff they serve a whole bunch, but everything they had I can get better someplace else. Instead of the intense flavor explosion I was expecting, I got just slightly insipid stuff. Nothing was wrong, but I have no urge to go back there today for lunch, unlike my normal reaction when I hit something amazing. I suspect that the spicing has been de-tuned to appeal to a broader taste. This may work, but I was not entranced like I am by the hole-in-wall Felafel place over by the student area of town.

So this goes into the pile as a perfectly nice place to eat, but not one to be sought out. Since I'm not in love with the food, I'm not in love with investing when it IPOs.

Perhaps they should serve stronger and or spiked drinks...

agreed.  their food is not that good. but perhaps an average joe might find it new and exciting.  i'd like to think that most people have more refined palates like us, but maybe not.  they've opened a few here in denver now...

Good to know.  Thanks for the honest review. (And I need to find my round tuit!)
