My boyfriend and I ate dinner at The Buffet while we were staying the River Rock. We enjoyed our stay but were not happy at The Buffet. The food was actually quite good, although there wasn't enough of a selection of hot food for $33 a person. What made our experience bad was our waitress. We got Sarb - she was attentive in getting our drinks when we first came in, but that was about it. She totally deserted us after that. We could see her walking around but she barely ever checked on us. I was waiting to ask for some tea to have with my desert for over 20 minutes and finally had to wave her over to ask for it and she was not pleasant when I did. I should note that she was not too busy with other tables at all, as I saw her cleaning tables and walking away from her section without even asking us if we needed anything. I also noticed other tables around us being neglected - one person actually got up and got a coffee pot from the station and serve himself and his table because he didn't want to wait for her anymore. At the end when we were trying to pay for our drinks, we waited another half an hour for her to come over or even look our way so we could ask her for a pen to sign our slip. We ended up just getting up and borrowing a pen from the hostess station. We explained that Sarb never came and finally after waiting so long we just wanted to pay and go and the response we got was "okay, no problem". Actually it is a problem!! Needless to say I did not leave a tip, which I hate doing, but I was so unimpressed with our experience. We won't be coming back to The Buffet again, which is a shame since the food was good and we do usually enjoy dinner, but I'm not going to pay that kind of price to be completely ignored.
