The restaurant is wonderful! The food is terrific! The wine selection is great! BUT, we called just after 2pm, and left our reservation on their answering machine, as this is what their message has said to do. However, it seems that they don't check their messages. Our reservation was not in their system. They did not apologize, as well, the person who took our call when we noted to them, we were in traffic and running late, was smug and unapologetic. When we arrived, but two minutes following our telephone call, the host greeted us with a list of calls he JUST listened to, and denied to us that we called. He said he MAY, be able to fit us in. This was laughable, as there was no one in the room he seated us at. The room then proceeded to add two more parties to the room. This gentleman wore glasses and was older than the rest of the staff by a generation, at least. He was smug, rude and arrogant. Uncalled for, unnecessary, and clearly warranted this review. I hope he reads this. I would never treat a guest at my home the way in which he treated me. Our waiter on the other hand, was a gentleman, and an absolute pleasure.
