First time we ordered a margarita pizza to go. It was really good and at $16 bucks not a bad deal. Tonight we decided to eat in the restaurant. 6 pm and lots if room to spare. No lineups, no problem. While we appreciate that a restaurant wants to do high customer turnover, I've never been served so fast in my life. Drinks ordered and whammo, they are there. We've barely had time to look at the menu and the waiter wants to take our order. "Give us a minute" we said and that's all we got before he was back to take our order. Ok, so we ordered and the salads were on the table within 3 minutes. No lingering over our cocktails. Lets get busy! We had not finished our salads before the main course was on the table. We commented to ourselves that this was faster than a fast food restaurant . We really didn't get a chance to enjoy or savour our dinner. The table next to us managed to move their family of four in and out the door in no time at all. Hey, if they customers are lined up to get in, the quick turnover is appreciated. If the restaurant is almost empty, what's the rush. I don't blame our waiter. He's just doing what he's told. In fairness, the salads were yummy and by Maui standards generous. The chicken piccata looked a little pale and lost in a beige sauce. My bolognese sauce was average at best. The pizzas are good though with a nice thin crust. But fellas, give us a chance to enjoy the beautiful view and relax a bit. After all,we are supposed to be on Maui time!
