    I take back everything good I said about The Crest. The first time I went there was the only time I had good food and service.

    I really want this place to succeed, but I don’t see it happening. It’s run like a campus bar. The service is lousy and the food is inconsistent at best. I just went tonight and the place was committing all the restaurant sins in the book. Willie Degel would’ve had a field day with this place.

    The only thing I like about The Crest is the mac-n-cheese, the side portion not the appetizer. I would say their beer selection is good, but since neither their servers nor bartenders seem to care to know their menu is doesn’t matter what kind of selection they have.

    After this place fails I hope some real restauranteurs step in and put an awesome restaurant in its place.

    I disagree!! I have been there 4 or 5 times with excellent service and food. It is one of my favorite new spots!!

    I brushed my teeth this morning and noticed that my tube of Crest toothpaste had a weird flavor to it. I think it went bad.

    Can we just give Gil, Toddanders and innercore their own thread where they just bitch about how much everything sucks?

    I noticed that the moon was getting lower and lower in the sky this morning. I’m not optimistic about its long-term success.

    The only fail is this thread. Another steaming pile of turd from Gil.

    Let’s be honest…unless you’re sitting at the bar, the Crest has some serious service issues.

    #549223

    I love this spot and love that it’s in the neighborhood; however, I think there is certainly more than a grain of truth to the complaint about service w/r/t the beer list. I’ve been served the wrong beer here on five or six different visits, and it’s not uncommon to hear a server say that he/she is “not a beer person.” The concept of the place is solid and the service has much improved since opening, but they seriously need some staff training to take place regarding their (usually quite well-curated) beer list.

    A friend of a friend who dated the bartender told me that when Crest fails, they’re going to build a creative art mecca complex.
