“Never felt more miserable in my life”

Restaurant details
Reviewed May 14, 2014

It’s unbelievable how in the United States in 21st century people working in HOSPITALITY industry would make you feel so miserable just because you are a woman. It’s beyond my comprehension and I wouldn’t believe if it didn’t happen to me. Here is the story.
My fiancé and I were staying at Harras for our ski vacation in Lake Tahoe. He was taking too long to round up at the casino, so I decided to go ahead and get a dinner at this restaurant. The hostess asked me few personal questions and after learning that I might be dining alone told me that that they don’t have any table at the moment and offered me to seat at the bar which was located in a separate room. I honestly didn’t care where to get my sushi so I went there. Sat there for good 15 minutes thoroughly ignored by the bartender (a lady as well). Finally my fiancé showed up. And – oh magic! – there is suddenly a table available for him. And not just one as I discovered when we walked into the dining room, it was almost EMPTY!
I still can’t believe that it actually happened to me. And I can’t find any good explanations of WHY it happened. I doubt that I was confused for someone I am not - I don’t dress provocatively and I didn’t even wear a make-up. But regardless, who are they to judge?! Are we living in United States or in Arab Emirates?
