On my third visit to St. Elmo over a couple of years I really wanted to like it. The place looks cool and you can't really beat that indoor/outdoor vibe. However, once again I was left feeling blah. Staff are nice, but not efficient. Food arrived before drinks both at the beginning and at dessert.
Some no no's in the world of good customer service made an unwelcome appearance: when I questioned why my fig and goat cheese curd salad had no cheese I was eventually and bizarrely told that the chef had put cheese in it but I would not be charged for the dish (loved being basically called a liar).
The ceviche was over macerated, the patatas undercooked, the tomato bread lacked depth of flavour and the brisk presented like a bowl of dog food.
The wine was good though!
