My wife and I visited this last week and honestly, were very disappointed by the service of our server. First she seemed put out that I was drinking water only - not normal for me I confess, but I had surgery scheduled the following morning - so after my wife starting with a glass of sparkling, tried to push a bottle on her afterwards - totally inappropriate.
Then came the service during the meal - inattentive and cursory enquiry as to whether we enjoyed it or not. Now, the food was excellent, we had three courses each - really went for it! All of our dishes were good. My wife had a selection of wines by the glass, and port with her cheese - all excellent. Should be noted here that actually we probably spent more on the glasses of wine and my San Pellegrino than we would have on a full bottle - server take note!!
Then came the bill.............and the biggest disappointment of the evening. The server had added extra coffees, and dessert to our bill. Call me suspicious, but when challenged all she could manage was a 'thank you for checking the bill for me' comment......mmm, not sure I believed her sincerity. She would have known that there were two desserts on the bill as the kitchen would have prepared them per her input - so very odd!
So food good, check your bill carefully - and I hope you get a different server than us!!!
