Panera Bread Salad Review

I was in Panetta in central park ave N.Y. and had a horrible experience. The flatbread was tough and old. The filling was barely there (so different from the ads), the salad was all over the bowl-presentation and food was definitely awful.

Over the years, Panera sandwiches have been shrinking and the ingredients have also been miniaturized. The only thing that has increased over the years is the price!You don't get much for your dollar at Panera now.

I visited the Panera Bread at Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham, MA. I ordered the new shrimp and soba noodle salad, to go, and returned to my office a few blocks away. I discovered that there were no soba noodles, just shrimp with shredded cabbage and spinach. What a...

Panera Bread and their worst manager

This is for the Panera on 8531 State Highway 151 in San Antonio, TX. I'm writing this to not only warn the customers, but also to warn future employees from dealing with a bad tempered boss. It was my FIRST time going to Panera Bread, my friends from college had referred it to me, so I came here. We ordered some pasta, soup, and a salad. The cashier was really nice. We sat down and ate. Everything was going well until we decided to get some brownies. The manager (big fat guy supposedly named Tino/Gino) asked us to wait. So we waited. We saw a sign that said "99 cent brownies" on the door so we asked him if we could have the brownies for that price. He snapped for no reason and said we needed to do that when we paid for our other food. Again, it was our first time here, we did not know that, so there was no reason for him to raise his voice at us. Then he rudely said that he would have to see our receipt. We gave him the receipt and he said we needed two drinks. We told him we had two drinks. So then he realized that the cashier didn't charge us for the other drink. That's when the manager raised his voice at the cashier in front of everyone and told him to not make the mistake again. I felt so bad for that guy. He turned to us and finally gave us the *** brownie. And we left. We decided to call and make the complaint and in the end, the same manager told us he wouldn't give us a refund or a free meal and he didn't even apologize. He also suggested that we should go ahead and write a review, so here it is ***... First of all, you never raise your voice to your customers. And second, you never correct an employee in front of your customers. When correcting an employee, you do it in the back where customers are not around. It's common sense, it doesn't take an *** to figure that out.

Panera Bread Salad

Going downhill | Panera Bread in Boston, Massachusetts

At a Brookline, Mass. Panera, theserver was full of tattoos - no thanks, that's disgusting. The server forgot my chicken on my salad. The croutons on my chicken Caesar salad were as hard as rocks. My chocolate chip cookie was stale. The lettuce in my salad was getting wilted. Six noisy high school kids at the table next to mine, were jumping around. Non one stopping this nuisance. Dirty tables in general, no one cleaning up. Dishes in the disposal area full, no one cleaning up. Asked for a complaint box - was told none was available. Asked for manager - none came quickly.

How are tattoos "disgusting" in relation to food service? Are that person's hands somehow dirtier than yours? You sound very stuck up.

Poor baby!!! If you don't like the conditions when eating out, start eating at home.

How were the high school kids jumping around, could it be that you are exaggerating, and just wanted to add that to your long list of complaints.

I find it hard to believe that all those things were wrong at the same time. Maybe you are a chronic complainer.

6 kids one booth, kids falling out of booth onto the floor. No supervision.

Food was a dud, experience a dud.

No one cleaning up. Eaten out a lot over a long time, and nothing ever was as unpleasant.

...I for one am glad they don't add preservatives. I'd rather get a little sick, than get cancer from some chemically manufactured preservative.

My Panera's in Palm Beach has posted on the menu: "You Pick Two -- $6.79" Meaning you can choose any two of your choice of sandwich, soup, salad. So I asked for the "Pick Two" special, placed my order, got my change (without counting it) and now...

how a "you pick two" is charged is clearly posted on the menu, read it! If you don't get it, ask the cashier. Don't assume something and throw a fit
