We love Rehoboth, and one of the things we love about vacationing there is the nice selection of restaurants. Wow, was this a disappointment. After getting the local/slow food lecture (I guess it's more of a unique thing in places other than my "cosmopolitan" home of Pittsburgh, PA....?) and the tour of the eclectic menu, we were seated at a card table that had been painted brown. I admire the creative re-use of old furniture, but this was ridiculous. Next to a cooler with drinks...and a large institutional sized Helman's mayonaisse container filled with *something else* - a big no-no for health dept regs in PA...but maybe different rules in DE. Server started off friendly, but after the uninspired appetizers arrived (could've made just the same out of the Moosewood cookbook), main course arrived. I ordered Chiles Rellenos, and given the hype at the front of the menu, expected something at least as good as I've had at Kaya in Pittsburgh (www.bigburrito.org/kaya - go there) - it was not. The tomato sauce on the plate dwarfed the peppers and tasted less exciting than my sad home-made efforts with local, organic, heirloom tomatoes and peppers right at home in Pittsburgh. When my partner asked about the cucumber-avocado salad, the server said "the chef sometimes does whatever she wants because it didn't look good when plated". When my partner said she wanted what was on the menu, the server came back with a bowl of the cucumber-avocado salad - which looked like guacamole with chopped cucumbers mixed in. At this point, as I at my meal, I began to feel a bit ill. My partner asked to speak with a manager - who then said someone should've told us the chef does whatever she wants and you can't count on getting what's on the menu. REALLY? Are you serious? I get better service from the high school kids working at Grotto's slinging pizza for jobs that probably pay only minimum wage!(Better food at Grotto's too - and not over-priced). He finally clammed up, took it away and removed it from the bill. We left after paying for my meal (wish I hadn't eaten it...I felt like I had eaten a rock) walked down the street and had yet another lovely dinner at Cafe Sole - which has a fine selection of vegetarian items, many local sources, good service, and I've never felt ill after eating there (like I did after eating at Hobos). All in all, one of the most disappointing dining experiences I've had at any price, and at the prices they charge, there was absolutely no excuse.
