I had heard nice things about this restaurant, so I called them about a month prior to a family gathering to ask if they could accommodate a large party. They told me they absolutely could - it would be no problem and they asked that I call them back when we got closer to the date to just confirm that the number of people were correct, which I did one week before the date. In addition, we had communicated the same morning with them to add two more people - so they had know doubt we were going to be there.
When we got to the restaurant (6:30 on a Saturday evening), our entire party of 15 were there. We were told that it would be about 40 minutes to an hour to get seated. The restaurant was packed. The bar was packed. There was barely anywhere to stand and there was no where to sit except in a room outside the restaurant that is not heated (it was below freezing that night). At least 6 people in our party were more than 70 years old and standing that long, stuffed like sardines, was really not an option. About 10 minutes later, I spoke to the hostess again. She gave me the same time frame and when I asked her what the problem was she replied "Well, you just made these reservations." I told her I had made the reservations more than a month ago and she said, "Oh, it must be the other large party then." I am not sure why a restaurant that is not very large would accept reservations from another large group when they already had one on the books for a month or why they would seat so many people when they knew a large group was coming in. In any event, we ended up leaving and they were perfectly fine with that. They didn't apologize for the problem or try to make us happy in anyway, they just said, "Ok." We were looking forward to the dinner and as good as the food might be, I will not be returning.
