At first I was really excited about Romaines, such a great concept. After eating there a handful of times I am no longer a fan. The owner is always there and he's not friendly, almost comes across as he doesn't want you there, its bizarre. Not to mention when I went to nurse my child, the owner seemed deeply offended. I can pay $10.00 for a salad but I can't nurse my child, in the back corner while using a nursing cover without getting "the look?" I'll never eat there again. Romaines won't last a year. Go to the Good Food Store if you want a salad.
Dismal. Except for one waitress we encountered poor and often rude service, currently only 3 beers on tap and the bar stank of stale beer. Food was good last year, but this year, not so much. We shall not be staying again.
Read several reviews and had high hopes. Started with the onion rings as an appetizer, indeed very generous portion for the price, however super greasy and the onions had no flavor at all. One of us ordered the special, BBQ Roast Beef, Bacon, aioli, etc flatbread sandwich. It was super sweet and just not interesting, could only taste very sweet BBQ sauce. I had the Jerk Chicken on fry bread, served with red cabbage slaw, yoghurt dressing and a home mode relish, etc. The whole thing was soggy which ruined the fry bread, besides some jerk spices the chicken was not seasoned and again the taste was sweet and not interesting. Having it served in a plastic basket with a piece of paper didn't help either; it just did not look appetizing. The gal who served us, I think she was the owner, was very friendly and I think they try very hard and have some interesting ideas but someone need to really work on the flavors and presentation. Please taste, taste, and taste before you serve anything. I would rather see 5 or 6 really good dishes on the menu then 3 pages of mediocre food.
One of the worst burgers I have had in years.
Sucked, went there, it was packed, they got the order wrong, and that is NOT a $9 sandwich, save your money and go to macdonalds for similar quality.
I went there with friend half years ago but I don't think I can go back unless I will here something good about it.
I heard pizza is pretty good but not really.
This place is a joke. It makes pretense at being an establishment of fine dining but their quality of food is lower than my appetite after smelling their seafood fettuccine. The seafood smelled rancid, the prime rib weight was calculated on the bone and resulted in paying twice the price for half the meat, and the fact that they pack you in like sardines with a pathetic little salad bar in the corner you can barely get in and out of... save your money.
On 07/02/11 wanted "Street Vendor Noodles" but they were "out" the "chef" recommended "Tokyo Noodle Bowl" as they are similar. Chicken was all fat, service was "Meh...". Noodles lacked any flavor, I had to drown it in soy sauce to taste anything. My water glass was hot (just came out of dishwasher maybe?), and one of my guests glasses had a crack from top to bottom and back to top in a giant U shape. If the Missoula voters voted this the best....we have absolutely no culture or taste. Will not not buy again. I would rather fly in Angelos from New York than eat here again.
If you want a working internet connection, go anywhere BUT the Break. After they 'upgraded' the system in 2010 it still failed to work and to make matters worse the 'upgrade' resulted in none of the staff knowing where the routers are to restart them. Only if you enjoy spending $5 for your drink, sitting down, opening your laptop and discovering that you have to get up and go elsewhere to get any work done online will you like BROKE Espresso.
I cant believe this place is still in business & still able to serve alcohol. I just talked to someone whose 17 year old sister was provided alcohol by this establishment on New Years eve so they still have not learned their lesson nor are they adequately training their employees to define age limits before serving these kids. I dont ever want another mother to go through what I have because of this so called fun center.
Stopped by James Bar with a small group and was blown away by the rude female bartender. I lived in NYC for years and have traveled all over the world and never came across such rude service. It is so sad and disappointing to experince it in a great town like Missoula. Lighten up and get over yourself James Bar Bartender. We'll take our business elsewhere.
