I'm just off AC015. We had the same menu posted by @24left above.

The lobster in the lobster appetizer was very good, however the endive was extremely wilted with brown edges, as if it had been prepped at least two days prior. I ate around the endive and pointed it out to the crew when they were clearing my plate.

Perhaps because of the endive experience, I reacted quicker when the chicken braised in red wine was sub par. Many, many times on AC I have had meals served so hot that they couldn't be touched for a few minutes. Not this time. The chicken wasn't hot, it was barely warm; and the spaetzle was cold. First time I've ever sent a meal back on a flight. I was willing to switch choices, but they had another chicken, "out of the oven" I was told. It was better, but still not hot. And no one bothered to ask about it until well after the cheese course. I agree that the cheese offering is weak. All three are too mild. There should be at least one sharper/older cheese for contrast.

Best part of the meal, by far, was the lemon tart.
