What a terrible (and sad) experience at what was until now, one of our favorite pizza places. The drink order was the first sign of problems. Picking through the large menu of microbrews, we placed our orders. The server then replied: “I’ll need to check if we have these, since we don’t have half of what is on the beer menu.” And she returned shortly with the news that 2 of the 5 were not in stock.
After finding drinks that were actually in stock, we placed our food order. The appetizers arrived in a reasonable amount of time and looked great. However, saying that the fried pickles were room temperature may be stretch. However, those further down in the dish were somewhat warm. This led us to two possible conclusions: either they were prepared fresh and allowed to sit far too long before serving or they were not fresh and had actually suffered from uneven microwave heating.
But, Revolution has always had really nice pizzas, so we still held hope. This hope evaporated when the first pizza arrived and the sausage was refrigerator cold. Apparently, the sausage was added as an afterthought and not cooked with the pizza. We also noticed that it was missing the red onions. We sent it back. It returned and had been heated enough so that the sausage was no longer cold, but still no onion. However, our second pizza had still not arrived. When we inquired, the server said that she was embarrassed to bring it out because it was missing too many toppings (apparently, she thought we just wouldn’t notice we only had half our order?). She then said that they had run out of ingredients, so our “Guacamole Pizza” that should have avocado, tomato, red onion, cilantro and mozzarella was prepared with only 5 small pieces of avocado (two slices had to share one small piece) and perhaps a tablespoon of mozzarella (see my photo). How can a pizza restaurant run out of tomato and red onion and need to ration cheese on a Saturday evening in which the restaurant was only half full?
Revolution had a good run. But, given the poorly stocked bar and lack of BASIC ingredients required to make pizzas, I fear they may be nearing the end.
