Britt-Marie's Wine Bar & Restaurant

Comments

Jill & Kevin w/ Peter Lacques This friday May 17th!!
Moral of the story: if there's no wine list, don't order wine and if they don't have the same items that are posted outside, get up and leave. The food was over priced and under spiced; the food was either bland or skimpy. Wouldn't you expect a salad, at least, with a meal costing $26? The eggplant dish was acceptable and the spanikopita ok.
