Cactus Club Langley, BC

I do not consider myself a food critic by any standard and I am not one to seek out fine dining but I am defiantly an eater and I know a good place to Mangia! Mangiawhen I see one. This brings me to my half happy, half disappointed blog today. I have been excited about the Cactus Club opening up in Langley since they tore down the older buildings that stood at 200th and the bypass to make way for the restaurant and other retailers. I enjoy Cactus Club elsewhere not only for the menu but the atmosphere it offers so I was over the moon because now I was going to have one in my back yard.  Today I had a mixed experience. I was thrilled with the service and very impressed with the décor. I had the best server ever named Micaela, she was top notch. Micaela was very personable and easy going. She did her best to keep us happy and even when we had to send a dish back she was a total trooper about everything and did not skip a beat. This brings me to my disappointed part of the blog. I was so looking forward to the Celeriac soup and fish tacos but when it arrived at the table and I had my first few bites they were not bad but a few more chomps in and I was overwhelmed by the Salt! SALT, SALT AND MORE SALT. I choked back one taco and half the soup. We had already sent back one pasta dish (Spaghettini and meatballs) due to a lack of effort in the kitchen, I didn’t have the heart to send another two dishes back. I am hoping today is going to be a one off for the kitchen and the next time I visit to enjoy the yummy food I have grown to love I hope it is just that, YUMMY! I do also want to point out that when we did send back the first dish Cactus club did take care of that item on our bill no questions asked and I am sure had I sent back the other two items they would have done there best to correct those also. I do plan on giving them another try and I look forward to them making good on this mini disaster the second time around. They do have great service and that is hard to find. Langley is also in need of some new restaurant blood. I was starting to get a little sick of Earls and Milestones. Maybe I am way off about the food today so if you had a better or different experience than I did at the Langley Cactus Club I would love to hear about it.
