Update: Waste of Ingredients! Literally – we had to give most of it back. When I was in LA last weekend, we showed up at 5:30 to make sure we were there in time to order the fried chicken. We were the only ones there for most of our meal and just like last time everything but the fried chicken was just okay. However, this time not even the chicken was good. It was under cooked (still raw on the inside) and when we pointed it out, a waitress tried to make it sound like it was our fault and gave us attitude. Their inconsistency and bad service has convinced me that coming back isn’t worth it. Officially crossed off the list!
The Shut-Up-and-Give-it-to-Me-Quick Version:
The fried chicken and bread were definite winners! The rest of the meal was good, but these 2 items are the ones I will return for. (READ: Fried chicken only served from 5:30 – 6:30)
The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:
I loved the vibe at Flores, we sat in the patio which feels like a cutesy beer garden. There was a birdcage in the middle (sometimes a fire pit) and plants growing on the walls. The china was adorable, each plate was a different Victorian-style design. The service was particularly poor, I guess they were short-staffed so the bartender was attending our table. She would leave for long periods of time and we could never get a hold of her (this was especially important because their fried chicken is only available from 5:30 – 6:30 pm… on the dot). The main issue was that she did not communicate with us that she would be playing a disappearing act the entire night so we felt very unattended.
