Not the best experience, not going there again

I am going to list down some positive and some negative feedback from what I experienced. + Overall look of the restaurant was quite nice. Liked the style and the bartender welcomed us in with a happy smile on his face. + When we finally got to our table, waitress didn't come immediately ask for our drinks or food. We had couple minutes time to think about our dishes. + Food got ready quite fast. + Waitress let us taste their wines before poured a whole glass from the bottle. + We hoped for a window spot, and that's what we got. - After bartender welcoming us into the restaurant, we had to wait for our table just by standing there close to 15 minutes. Even though we had a table reservation at 6 pm and we arrived at the time. Waitress didn't tell us anything, no apologizes and she just took us to the table after she got it cleaned. Looked like she was the only one working there. There weren't that many customers at the time, maybe like 6 tables. - When waitress came to ask for our drinks and mains, everything went fine. When we asked for starters, restaurant was empty of that dish we wanted. Her suggestions were more like "take this starter X, it's really good and delicious" She couldn't tell anything about the dish really, only "opinions". - Tables next to us were very unclean. - Tastes of the food. Sizzling prawns mezze: Prawns were cooked bit too long, they had that bubblegummish texture. Also there were way too much lemon in there. That was literally the only thing I could taste with a pinch of heat from the chili. Fattous mezze: Bread crumbs were really nice, but there were way too much groceries/leaves there. The starter looked more like a main. Marrakech lamb: Nothing special, not that much of a taste. Nicely cooked piece of a meat to be honest. Tasted excatly the same as Finnish traditional food: Karelian's hot pot. I think best part were the carrots there. Ginger Lemon Veef: Same problem as in every vegetarian food, there were way too much of that "Veef". Also the beetroot puree had some weird aftertaste, tasted like vinegar or something... - Most likely the most negative thing: Waitress. My companion was already quite full of the food, and waitress asked her: "Didn't the food taste good?" and looked like she was laughing when asking that. That was so unprofessional and rude. It wasn't for example "How was the food?" - On your website, there reads kitchen closes its doors at 7 pm. I asked for the desserts at 6:48 pm, and I checked that time, so I was good in time. Waitress told us "kitchen already closed its doors". I was really disappointed of that. After I asked second time for the desserts, you "didn't have" anything else, expect most likely leftover Pistachio Baklava and Beetroot choco cake. Waitress took those onto our table. Baklava tasted like it was made more than 10 hours ago, nice pistachio taste afterall. The choco cake texture was very thick and muddy. Conclusion: Waitress ruined the whole experience for us, even though it could have been better, with more professional and better customer servicing. And I paid 96,00 € for this. I can get ALOT better experience, customer service, and tastier food with alot less. Restaurant is clearly not keeping with their times they inform a customer on their website. We have to wait 15 minute for our table reservation, which we made a day earlier. It still wasn't ready in time. Very bad experience overall, can't recommend.

Palaute

Kaikki toimi moitteettomasti ja ruoka oli hyvää. Erityisen huomionarvoisia ruokia oli flatbread, baba ganoush, fatayar, baklava ja pannacotta. Näkymä ja sisustus olivat kauniit ja modernit, mutta ruokamaailmaan silti sopivat. Asiakaspalvelu onnistui jokaiselta tarjoilijalta todella hyvin, sekä nettivaraus on aina hyödyllinen ja toimi täälläkin mainiosti. Myös erityistoiveet otettiin hyvin vastaan. Kiitos koko väelle hyvästä illalliskokemuksesta.

Sunday brunch

Everything was amazing. Also special thanks for kitchen having vegan chocolate cake even though it was not on display.

brunch

Food was mainly really good. But falafels were a bit too overcooked. And some dishes ran out pretty fast.

Sunday brunch

Absolutely loving Sandro's brunches. Food is delicious and the atmosphere in Sandro Kortteli is lovely. This time it was just a little disappointing that they run out of food and people had to ask and wait for the bowls to be filled up. We didn't managed to have any salmon since they run out of that completely. Dessert table was totally empty once we got that far. Even so, will definitely be back :)

Brunssi Sandrossa

Hyvä brunssi ja mainiota ruokaa. Jälkiruoalle ei jäänyt paljon tilaa ja makeat piirakat ja kakut eivät olleet samaa takoa kuin buffee pöydän herkulliset antimet. Suosittelen ehdottomasti tutustumaan Sandron Brunssiin.

Jos kassalle toteaa meillä olevan pöytävarauksen ja vastaukseksi saa "74,70", ihmisten kohtaamisessa mättää aika lailla. Muutenkin henkilökunta tiuski ja oli äreää. Buffetista puuttui monta kulhoa, eikä uusien tuomisessa pidetty mitään kiirettä.

Ihan jees

Liian vähän henkilökuntaa, kurjaa kun joutuu pyytämään lisää kahvia, smoothieta, teetä. Jotkin ruoat loppu eikä sitten jaksaisi heti mennä uudestaan jonoon kun esim falafeleja tulee taas tiskiin. Ruoka hyvää ja kiva paikka.

Poor service

I have used sandro's restaurants maybe 10 to 15 times all over Helsinki. The best was in Eira. Yesterday your quality of service was more than poor. All the plates were unclean, our waitress didn't know anything at all about your menu or even what organic wine means. Bread was hard as a rock although our food was good. Waitress was in so bad mood that my date said that she has to get out of here. That atmosphere was truly that bad.

Nice food, but it could be more authentc Maroccan or Middle-Eastern. Do not make them too ''Finnish'' please.

Kaukana ollaan Eiran Sandron ajoista

Ruoka keskinkertaista, tarjoilijat tulevat vuoron perään ottamaan tilauksia, jotka on jo tehty, väärää ruokaa alkupalaksi..

Aika hyvä

Oikein hyvää ruokaa ja kohtuullisen täyttävää. Sinisimpukoiden kanssa ei tarjottu muita syömävälineitä kuin haarukka ja lusikka. Ja vain yksi servietti. Kehnoja paperiserviettejä sai kyllä lisää pyytämällä, mutta vähän hankalaa oli.

Arvostelu Sandro korttelista 23.1. klo 17.30.

Ruoka oli erinomaista .Mutta tunnelmaa laski erittäin paljon se, että seuralaiseni ja minä jouduimme tekemään tilauksen hyvin hämärässä, huomasimme myöhemmin että se johtui siitä että olimme ainoa pöytä jonka yläpuolella oleva lamppu ei palanut ! Pöytäämme ei myöskään tuotu kynttilää. Henkilökunnan Olisi pitänyt huomata tämä ja reagoida asiaan! Tästä jäi pettynyt olo, ei tullut tunnetta että ravintola pystyy ja haluaa huolehtia asiakkaidensa hyvästä tunnelmasta. Odotukseni Ssndroa kohtaan olivat korkealla sillä ystäväni oli suositellut sitä ja siksi olin pyytänyt sinne mukaani myös tärkeän ihmisen. Tämä kokemus vaikutti Sandrosta antamaani yleisarvosanaan erinomaisesta ruuasta huolimatta.
