Okay maybe it was all the hype and my expectations were too high? Barefoot just didn't wow me at least as far as the food goes. My tenderloin was cooked to order as it should be and place on a swirl of mashed potato and mixed vegetables. The presentation didn't work. The vegetables made the tiny portion of mashed potato soupy. Service was pleasant although a little absent-minded (water glasses not refilled; no offer of a 2nd glass of wine and the forgotten tea). Dessert an apple strudel type thing had doughy crust with over melted ice cream. I would go back and give them another try but it definitely didn't make my top five.
