So bad Yelp reviews and negative critical reception are the fault of the critics, and consumers should all just shut up and cheerlead mediocre chefs and restaurants? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.


It's great that you work hard, and running a restaurant is incredibly difficult. That said, expending a ton of effort in a challenging profession doesn't mean you deserve a thing. Chefs and restaurants are judged on the quality of their food and service. Put out mediocre food, get mediocre reviews. Nobody owes you a damn thing.

I have not eaten at Leghorn (yet) but I felt Amy Cavanaugh gave a totally in-bounds review. Everyone has an idea of how hard it is to run a restaurant-that doesn't excuse them from a well-written and balanced review from an established critic.

I agree with the reviewer.  I really WANT this place to be fantastic.  I live down the street and work from home - I would go here weekly if I loved it.  It sounded like a dream come true.  However, so far this place has seemed to put the majority of effort into marketing, and not the food.  


If you market yourself as the anti chick fil a, you need to at least be able to match chick fil a for quality.  I ordered the nashville hot breast on a biscuit.  The biscuit was hard and crumbly.  The breast was too dry.  Taste was pretty decent for both.


I will give it another try - but I was definitely disappointed.  You can't rail on a reviewer for telling the truth.


I haven't had any sides yet - It sounds like they are quite good though.  


I believe Leghorn CAN be a 4 or 5 star experience but they have some things to fix.  I hope they fix it.

I second Michael R's statement! Does Amy know how hard it is to make a living running a restaurant? How much hard work and late nights it takes? Every chef puts their heart into a restaurant and then these critics who have NO idea what it takes come in and complain about bland chicken. There are enough people on Yelp who come in and ruin our businesses. Why can't critics just get with the program and help promote us rather than making business worse. I have seen too many restaurants go out of business because of reviews like these. Amy~please see me when you open a restaurant.


Leghorn chicken is awesome!! Our only complaint was that it was so good we wanted more!!!!
