Not worth the wait
18/03/2013 by ElVino
My friends booked a table for 8pm on a Saturday night. We arrived five minutes early and stood in the corridor for 5 minutes without being greeted or even acknowledged. We found space at the small bar where once again we were ignored for 10 further minutes until we asked for a wine list. We told the barman about our reservation and were informed that our table would be ready soon. Ten minutes later we were shown to our table without having our drinks order taken. At 8:45 we managed to place our drinks order which arrived just before 9. We placed our food order and the starters arrived at 9:45 - one and three quarter hours after our booking time! The starters were tasty but diminutive. The main courses were tasty too but I would have liked to see some evidence of fresh herbs chopped to finish off the dishes which lacked presentation. As we were guests I did not make any fuss, however, if I was paying I would have walked out long before the starters arrived. So, my advice would be to try it as a takeaway because they have a lot to learn about service and etiquette.Report this
