On a cold night, we were seated in the long entryway because the restaurant was packed. Unfortunately, this area cannot be adequately heated. Women were putting on their coats or borrowing their husbands' jackets. One even asked for napkins to cover/warm her legs. It was very uncomfortable. The wait staff did not know what to do. Finally, the manager appeared. He turned up the heat, which provided temporary relief. However, as soon as the thermostat hit its set point and the heat turned off, the cold returned. Finally, the manager moved us to another table inside. The lack of comfort and disruption marred what otherwise would have been a very nice experience. (The sea bass and lamb were excellent. Also, the desserts.)The restaurant should not seat anyone in this entry area on cold nights. I said as much to the manager. He did not answer. Paying customers must trump reason/hospitality.)
