I visited with a group of friends in the beginning of October. As we were celebrating quite a big milestone, we were a group of 12 so we had prior reservation.
When we got to the restaurant, 11 of us were on time so we walked straight in only to find that our table wasn't ready yet. We were asked to wait however we were made feel that we came too early (not the case) and that it was almost a burden that we weren't late. We were finally seated after 15 minutes.
As one of the party was clearly running quite late, when we ordered we made it clear to the waiter that once they join us they will order separately as the person did not want to keep 11 of us waiting. We ordered around 8.30pm. The waiter was very efficient however I found him a little rude while taking our orders. After about an hour we still had no food on the table and 2 other groups who came after us had been served already so we felt we had to ask. We were told that the food is coming shortly however as one of the party was late, we had to take that into account. From this point on, we were made feel as if we were a burden so we felt uncomfortable asking a second time about our food.We weren't served until 10.30pm and as the restaurant closes at 11.30 it was made clear to us that we can't order deserts.
The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed their meal however the two hour wait was completely unjustifiable. The restaurant was busy and one of our party was quite late however that still does not justifying waiting 2 hours to be served. The attitude of the waiting staff made the situation worse.
Unfortunately as good as the food was, the thought of waiting as long next time means I won't be going back anytime soon.
