MeMe’s has a lovely fixed menu…but the last visit was disconcerting due to staffing. I waited a week to decide to write this… but since no manager was available that afternoon, decided to write this.
Like many restaurants now, MeMes has less than its usual...basic service, albeit still an automated request during payment for an 18% tip.
Especially during COVID and when staff is helpful, I understand and comply or exceed. But…
At least 3 young staff members were hunched around the register, gabbing, no greeting, just enough energy to look up and point to a stack of menus.
Everything had to be dragged out of them. We sit down outside, realize we never got a cup for a drink. Walk back inside, ask.
Get a pointed finger in reply.
Go back outside, realize we don’t have flatware/napkins. Walk back inside, interrupt their discussion, get a begrudging “Oh they’re in that bin” with another finger point.
Food was dropped off at the table with no further offer nor return visit to check. Perhaps remove the automated 18% request till staff is better trainedMore
