Was in Greenwich deciding which of the two Mexican restaurants on Greenwich Church Street to eat at.
We stood outside Desperados looking outside, when a man in a suit stood near the entrance (owner? manager?) came over to us and offered us our first drinks free if we ate there. We took him up on his offer. He ushered us inside and took us to a table.
The place was small but busy - we had a small table sat so close to the diners next to us, we could have been mistaken for being one whole group.
We ordered fajitas which were decent enough, and 2 beers (our free drinks, remember).
When we asked for the bill, I noticed immediately that we had been charged for the beers. I told the staff the situation regarding the gentleman who had made us the offer. They went away and came back with a revised bill, deducting the price of the beers.
However, a 10% service charge had been added to the first bill (I hate when restaurants do that - I'll decide what the service is worth, thanks!) but when the new bill appeared, the service charge was still 10% of the original amount, not the revised amount.
This service charge, and pulling the stunt of trying to make us pay for our "free" beers, left a nasty taste in our mouths.
We won't be back.
