The food was OK (I had an unremarkable greek salad - my brother a tuna melt), the wine was good and the atmosphere and people VERY cool. Here's the deal though... I got the bill and in the darkened arena of this pub, the total looked to me to be 41 plus change, so I wrote 50.00 on my tab - leaving what I thought would be a nice tip for very average service. Leaving the bar and halfway across the street IN A RAINSTORM NO LESS - I hear a "HEY" and I turned to see my waiter in the doorway yelling at me "IS THIS A 50 OR A 60??" and I responded "50", he then goes on to yell "SO YOU LEFT ME A .61 cent tip!" - horrified, I said "NO, THEN ITS 60!".
EVEN if I did intentionally only leave him a .61 cent tip its not like a walked out on my bill - I firmly believe that good service warrants a nice tip, and even though his service was very average, my intention was to leave him a good tip - I guess I should just be glad that I was with my brother and not on some date or meeting with a client wherein I was trying to impress someone - the Hopvine Pub is definitely not where I would go ever again.
