Tonight we ate outside on the patio on a gorgeous AZ evening. The service was very good and the dinner was quickly delivered. Everyone ordered their favorite Cheesecakes. The big disappointment of the evening was that we then had to endure one of the other waiters taking their smoke break on the other side of the the patio (patio is only separated from the street by a hedge). The fact that a waiter finds it appropriate and that no one in mgmt chose to intervene was surprising. However, then as we are leaving a another employee -- in al black -- is standing on the same curb at the other end of the patio smoking. The patio is really nice but does have its drawbacks.
