Creektown Cafe: "Skip this place!" Walla Walla Restaurant Tip by bioguyxx

Walla Walla Restaurants: 10 reviews and 6 photos

We started eating here 4 years ago while in Walla Walla on our weekend wine tasting visits. The place is decorated in casual bistro style, but the food and wine price not - more like fine dining. Too bad the atmosphere isn't so fine. Upon entry, there is no reception area. So if you have to wait for your table, you'll most likely find out what's good from tonights menu - since you'll be standing about 2 feet away from what's on other diners plates. The food is very inconsistent so you're never sure until it's too late that you've made the right choice for your evening. They do many seasonal menus, using local ingredients when possible, which can result in anything from very tasty to "please don't make me eat another bite". The one thing that is consistent is the service. And it sucks big time! Our reservations have been screwed up more than once, even when we've booked months in advance and called to confirm the week before. Since we generally are in the area on weekends, having the snooty, obnoxious manager inform you upon arrival on a Saturday night that they "don't have you down in the book" or "your reservations were 30 minutes ago so we gave up your table" provides for very few options at that point. You'd think by the attitude and arrogance that this guy gives off management believes they're running some chic little bistro in the East Village or in North Beach. It's nothing more than a diner, for gods sake. So get over yourselves. Travel tip - always beware of men with extremely fake tans. If you want a nice casual dinner, skip this dump and go to the Backstage Bistro instead.
