My partner and I have been wanting to come here for dinner. With his sister in town we decided to try it out. Made a reservation for 530 on Sunday June 9th. Arrived at 5:20 greeted at the front door by a very polite hostess and was sat immediately. There we sat, ignored not even looked at as other wait staff walked by our table numerous times. The place was not busy at all. Plenty of empty tables. Plenty of wait staff walking around setting tables, standing at the bar chatting with each other.
Once we reached the 10 minute mark of still no hello, or ill be right with you, or here is some water ill be back to take your drink order....nothing. We decided to leave and take our money elsewhere. Upon walking by the front desk, I was asked by the hostess that sat us was everything ok, to which I replied no, we've not been helped and I asked her if I could speak to the manager. Another person said she would go get him. Then I waited again. While waiting for the manager one of the waiters asked what was wrong in which I replied after being ignored for 10 minutes we were leaving. He apologized and said please sit down and ill help you right away, to which I replied you yourself have walked by our table at least 3 times not one even looking our way....no thank you. Finally after about 5 min the manager appeared and asked what was wrong. Again repeating we have been ignored. He apologized and said oh no. Come sit now and ill comp our meal. I told him I wasn't interested in a free meal and was no longer interested in eating there, but I would be sure to mention my experience online. Won't go back
