We decided to sit outside for lunch at the Occidental on a Saturday afternoon. The menu was very expensive but it was the experience and the sights. It did appear to be short staffed, we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated, with many open tables. It took another 12 minutes to be greeted by a waiter, another 10 for drink orders then it took 15 to get the drinks. Most of us ordered bottomless Mimosas which turned out to be 4 small glasses. Our waiter just stopped coming to our table. It took 30 minutes for our food to come out which was good, but not 19.00 a hamburger good. They even forgot to make one friends lunch, which they did comp. good thing we were not on a time schedule . I think the worst part was the nerve to charge a 20% gratuity on the worst service in the city. Thinking back we probably should not have tipped at all, the service was that bad. Save your money and go somewhere else.
