Jason Atherton’s Pollen is set in a beautiful setting within the Flower Dome at the iconic Gardens By. The service is exceptional, friendly and attentive even giving us a shawl to counteract the Dome’s cool climate. The menu reads well with some interesting and high end dishes – with high end prices. However when it came to execution we were somewhat disappointed. The dishes come from the kitchen looking beautiful but lacked in taste. To give a few examples, the Iberico Pork Collar was dry and over cooked & the Halibut was very small for $50 & lacked seasoning. Great venue for something a bit different but won’t be heading back.
