“Great little place... but,”
We went for an early dinner prior to a downtown show. Food was all very well done and flavorful. Homemade pasta, bread, best tirimisu I ever had. Service was adequate but nothing spectacular. We brought our own wine and paid the expected $15 corking charge.
All was very comfortable and enjoyable until we were asked to relinquish our table and take desert to an outside table because a 7pm reservation had arrived and they needed our spot. We were flabbergasted at the insensitivity of the management staff to even ask this. It was just 7 at that moment and desert was presumed to be on the way (only because of a delay to get their crepes prepared). We cancelled and left. Management called later to apologize and beg us not to think ill of them, but I have never experienced such a crass request in a restaurant. Tried not to penalize the waitress as I'm sure she was just following instructions. Although management seemed apologetic, they were of no consolation and the damage was done. Therefore, the dings on service and atmosphere. Take away this highly irregular incident and I would agree with the other reviews on all counts... would have been 5 stars, but I can not account for their lack of respect for guests.
