Nice, clean, upscale, trendy place to eat. Beautiful decor, and you are paying for it in the pricey meals. No sandwich menu after a certain time, which leaves you with meals that are $15 and up.
Ordered Sea Bass. The fish was good but the portion was skimpy. It was artfully arranged on a spinich bed swimming in a rather disgusting sauce. I was still hungry after the meal.
Waitstaff were college age kids. Acted like they were doing you a favor because they waited on you.
Just your typical trendy place with a trendy sounding name and you will pay for the priviledge.
Sometimes you are sick of going to Applebee's for a night out. I was looking for something ethnic, and old world. I stumbled upon Crocus and decided to give it a try.
The night was cold, but Crocus was warm and unpretentious. The staff were largely Polish and Polish-American. The prices seemed reasonable, 10.95 for lake perch and 12.95 for a polish platter which included stuffed cabbage, sausage, perogis and a couple other regional favorites. We also could order Okicim (Polish Beer) on tap, a little pricey at 4.50 (16 oz) but it was on tap and an import from Poland no less!
Anways, the food was great, very authentic. The potato pancakes were very good as was the perch. I also really enjoyed my wife's stuffed cabbage. I would definitely go back.
The atmosphere was also very nice and relaxed. Not swanky, not trendy, just warm. The bar was also loaded with a caste of characters speaking Polish. One patron looked like John Paul the II. Very funny, how they were flirting with the young waitstaff. Place is fun, and enjoyable.
