The three of us came in and were greeted promptly and seated. The waiter appeared quickly and took our drink order. After we ordered out appetizer, he started to give us less and less attention. The bread was not fresh. The food was okay, but the shrimp scampi was not made as requested and the replacement meal was soggy and had only six small shrimps in it. I have eaten this here before and there are usually more shrimps when they are small and six when they are large. The large figured lady who appeared to be in charge apologized and took it off the bill but was not as friendly as she should have been. She did not offer a free dessert or other item to make it right. The other person's food items were okay but not great. The bathrooms were dirty and the when we arrived the outside of the eatery was dark. They need to fix the timer for their lights. We figured out that the decline in the service quality was due to two men who were sitting nearby and consuming a lot of food and alcohol and were paid much more attention than we were. The manager lady even had her knee on the bench while she was chatting with them. I left hungry. It is not likely we will return to this place again. For quite awhile. It used to be a nicer place.
