The waiter was out of line and never been instructed by management to act in such an insensitive way. Please accept my humble apologies.

We had a great evening at Cesare's while vacationing in Clearwater! The service was excellent and each entree was delicious. We shared everything family style and were able to sample many entrees that way. Loved the mushroom risotto!
