A group of friends and I were out to the Flying Canoe for the "Best Ceasar in Town" contest as well as the person below and had a very similar experience. Sounds like we were in the very same section at the same time. It was some of the worst service we ever had on every level.
We have been to the Flying Canoe in the past and found the service was very slow whether it is a slow or busy night. I have a feeling that these girls are hired with no experience and very little if any training. Walking by without acknowledgement upon arrival, little menu knowlege, slow food, no check backs until you are finished, other servers will walk by the table 20 times before helping each other or removing plates, you always have to ask for your bill which is usually wrong and there are no appologies for the constant lack of service or mistakes. This is so unfortuante because I'm sure the servers have it in them but they just have no skill as far as I and all the other people I was with, would say. Ambience is a 10 and so is the food but come on, put some effort into your customer service. I was a server for 15 years and I know I wasn't always good but I always believed in team work and looking out for each other. This place needs to take a day or two and teach all this staff how to work together and make happy customers or things will go right down the tubes. We left that night and got some amazing service from one of the girls at the Whistle Stop. We suggested she goes and trains at Flying Canoe. I'd hate to see this beautiful place go under as it has so much potential. Please fix this so we can come back again. At this point we won't be.
