I hate to give a poor review when we had so many things stacked against us but I hope this review can help the establishment and other diners.
First: Our group of 8 people (4 couples) arrived after 8:30 (maybe pretty close to 9pm) on a Friday night. We asked at the bar if we could still get seated and a woman I can only assume is the owner said no problem so we got drinks and waited to be seated. Not too long of a wait very nice staff to start out with.
Second: We can be a little loud at times there are 8 of us...I only say this to give the place the benefit of the doubt. Once we were seated things stopped happening. There were Zero drink refills. Any drink you wanted you had to get up and go to the bar yourself. Not the end of the world but our first round was over $50...and we would have been perfectly content to order like that repeatedly throughout the night. A wasted opportunity for the waitstaff.
Third: The waitress really didn't want to wait on us. She made that clear from the beginning by being a little short with the first person to order when she said they were out of the soup and he said well that really isn't an option then (not in a combative way). She didn't give suggestions when we asked questions. She didn't try to upsell us on anything. She did bring a very nice relish tray and put it on the table...didn't say anything about it but put it there.
Then we had a long wait. Not a big deal to us at all as we expected that and really enjoy each other's company. A long thirsty wait. There wasn't a single time when a drink was refilled. I mean not even a water. Ok. Fine. Our salads came out ok. Mine had the sticker of the tomato still on it. Fine. I moved it to a different plate and was going to say something discreetly to the waitress about it but she actually barked something to the effect "what do you want whats wrong" at my husband--no joke. So we both just said nothing and went on with our meal--seriously I only wanted to say something so it wouldn't happen to someone else. The rest of the food was okay. Some people in the group said it was pretty good. I just wanted to leave at that point.
They were very quick to get us our checks and we left.
I'm sure we were loud and obnoxious in their eyes...but we enjoy dining out and are willing to spend a lot of money to do it...
