I wish the owners invested as much money in the quality of kitchen staff as they did with the decor of the place. I will say it is a very beautiful establishment, but the food is sub-par. I ordered the braised rabbit with roasted red peppers and avocado, which was on a "raft" of polenta. First off, when you braise food, you usually add some aromatics. I love rabbit, but this product was flavorless and I was disappointed again when I tried the polenta, which was soggy from the juices of the rabbit and roasted peppers. My next order that night included one of my favorite sandwiches; the Cuban. They include a fried egg, which I agree is a fantastic addition to any sandwich, but all I could taste was dijon mustard and pickles. Again, the meat had NO FLAVOR. The bread was toasted, but burnt and just added to my disappointment. Even the fries, which seem to be cut in house, lacked salt and pepper. It seems that Lisa (one of the owners) gathers inspiration from her many bragged-about travels around the world, but is unable to have the actual FLAVOR successfully replicated in her own kitchens. It is sad to see that not only do the Mogensons have 3 different establishments within a one block radius by phoenix park, but at Stella's and the Livery the food is just plain not good. Somehow, Mogies' gets their food right, but the other places do not. Maybe these people should stick to burgers and deep fried food instead of pretending to be something they are not.

Went for drinks with a few friends from out of town. The atmosphere is nice, and I really like the huge fire pit in the back. One of the worst Bloody Mary's I have ever had, I'm not a fan of the relish they serve on top of it. Also, I will only order bottled beer as I ordered a Patron with a lime, and the bartender put Rose's Lime (sick!) instead of a lime wedge. Also, this has nothing to do with my experience at The Livery, but that blonde lady that is always around has been nothing but rude to my friends and I when we are at Stellas, The Red Room, etc. Be nice to your customers.
