A diner from Lilburn, Ga gave an overall rating of 1  out of 5 stars on October 22, 2007 @ 5:04 PM

 I visited Aldo's on Saturday night as a "date night" with my wife. I have to say that I had one of the worst dining experiences that I've ever had. The food was incredibly deficient in every aspect. There was not a single part of my meal that was enjoyable in the least.

To start with, we had "crab" stuffed mushrooms. As I'm eating one of the 4 tiny mushrooms, I notice a piece of imitation crab. I point it out to my wife & she says that she hadn't noticed any imitation crab. 2 bites later she turns to me & says, "I think I just got a piece too." These 4 tiny mushrooms were accompanied by a bowl of rock hard stale garlic rolls.

After the mushrooms, we were brought a salad which literally had a puddle of salad dressing in the bowl. There was enough dressing for 10 salads in our salad bowl.

I ordered the "chef's special" which I was told was grouper with lobster sauce. Since we both really wanted seafood that night I ordered it instead of the chicken parm I had planned on. After about an hour my entree shows up & it is small fish with no seasoning (except for a few pepper flakes) and a sauce served on the side which was more of a paste than a sauce. The sauce was terrible and I could see why they didn't put it on my fish. What really got me though was the fish was NOT grouper at all but rather tilapia.

Upon calling the owner over, he proceeded to yell & point at my wife. His response was that "I wouldn't cheat you" & "I've been in business for 27 years". When I mentioned that the crab was imitation he responded with, "if I served real crab I'd have to charge twice as much." I then pointed out on the menu where it said "crab meat stuffed" and no where was the word imitation. He offered no apology just kept insisting that he was justified in serving us food that was not what he claimed it to be and then charge as if it were grouper/crab. I had a $125 tab for "fake" food and a bottle of wine.

DON'T EAT HERE, YOU & YOUR WALLET WILL REGERT IT.
