Daniel, Hello and Welcome to the Forum....
Not that I am writing two wine columns weekly for HaAretz and am no longer the newspaper's restaurant critic, my visits and re-visits are far further apart. Despite that, I too ate at Shmeil's a short while ago and found it very disappointing. As to HaChatzer, also visited fairly recently, bottom line is "perhaps not worth a special visit but pleasant enough for those who live or work in the area. I have not visited Angelica.
Apropos of what you write, perhaps worth perusing the thread at viewtopic.php?f=30&t=35198
in which we discuss what seems to be a downhill slide at many restaurants.
