I had been in this restaurant on several occasions for group lunches and found the food quite good. Looking at their menu, I had deemed this place to be for special occasions only. On the eve of Fathers day, we decided to go to this place.
We were greeted by a very energetic lady who provided us with menus and got our drink order. It was then that we were handed off to a waitress. As we sat there other couples in our age group were arriving. They were met effusively by both the owners wife and our waitress, apparently these guests were regular customers. One younger couple came in and they greeted in the same manner as we were, obviously not regulars.
The waitress was less than engaging and the "service" was perfunctory to be kind. We both ran out of dressing and had to bring this to the attention of the two people that removed dishes from the tables. I am a "coffeeholic" and I do not like to run out of coffee with my meal. Again, I had to engage the assistance of others than that of the waitress. The waitress made a perfunctory and obligatory inquiry to the effect how the meal was. I had all I could to control my anger and make a bad situation worse.
Now the meal, I had the Wiener Schnitzel which was rubbery and not crisp and the breading was falling off as it lay on the plate. The dish was much blander than I have had it in the past in other places. My wife was not enthralled with her lobster ravioli.
I desperately wanted to like this place to have some place to dine on spec ial occasions. Being ignored by the waitress and offered food that was less than palatable is certainly a dealbreaker.
The place was not busy. BUMMER!
