A group of 9 of us dined at Sparrows on a Friday night recently and we felt uncomfortable as soon as we arrived. Our booking was for 6.30 - no one was in the restaurant and I even checked the door to make sure they were even open. The waitress showed us to a table which was only setup for 6 and after some debacle, another man showed us to the right table.
It seemed to take a very long time for our drinks order to be taken and when my wine arrived I they gave me the wrong wine but didn't explain this to me - they explained it to a friend sitting next to me instead?
The meals were ok but expensive and not worth the money to order tapas only.Several drinks were ordered throughout the meal that never seemed to arrive and a few of the men left towards the end of the meal to grab some more cash from the ATM and all of our plates were cleared without us being asked. At least 3 people hadn't even finished their meals! Plates and glasses were cleared and by this time we were pretty fed up so we asked for the bill. They then bought out the desert menu? Thank-god we didn't choose the 2 1/2 hour chef's menu tasting platter as only god knows what we would have gotten.
We complained about our dishes being cleared and we received a minimal discount and we just got the hell out of there. We won't be back. Don't know why it was all so complicated as there were only a few people there and our group of 9 was by far the biggest booking of the night. Very disappointing.
