This past weekend I encountered the rudest hostess in the world, or at least in all my travels thought the world - at La Grolla in St. Paul. After waiting ONE HOUR beyond our reservation time the hostess wanted to seat us at a table in the bar, which was jammed pack with angry customers like us - still waiting for a table - from 45 minutes to an hour+ beyond their reservation time. After I told the hostess, who had the presonality of a non-functioning door knob, that after waiting an hour beyond our reservation time a table in a loud, jammed pack bar was not acceptable, she explained that I had three choices. I could: 1) take the table at the bar 2) continue to wait 3) leave. All of these choices explained with a very curt and condessending demeanor. Not only was I offended, but she had the same sparkling personality with other customers as well - some who did decide to leave. I won' t be back and suggest you avoid such horrible, rude treatment and enjoy any of the other Italian restaurants in the Twin Cities.
