We have been to the Black Bear in Redmond and other cities many times and have always been pleased with the food.
However, recently (the last couple of months at least) the service has been fair to poor at best. It seems there are always too few servers available so those that are are running their behinds off to keep up. As a result of the constant rushing around it is impossible to get any attention service/attention once your food hits the table. Have been frustrated when the water glass and coffee cup gets empty and no one seems to be available to fix that or to refill the Ketchup bottle, bring cream for the coffee, etc.
This has been the case the past several visits, so we will not likely go back for a while or until we have word that the situation ha improved.
