Is Bocados Spanish Kitchen suffering from a superiority complex? I eat at least once per month here and the service is deteriorating. I checked in with my partner, only to be told that the table reserved for me has been wrongly given to another couple. Young waiter points out mistake to young waitress, both of whom seem a bit clueless, clearly lacking in experience. Every decent waiter will tell you that you do NOT tell the customer that you screwed up his reservation. He even pointed out which was 'our' table that we lost out on. The older waitress, lady around 40, explained the dishes wonderfully buy for the service we were stuck with Boy Wonder. He delivers a plate to a table and is in a daydream on his way back, totally oblivious to my waving. After four wave attempts, I had to click my fingers (which I NEVER do) to snap him out of his reverie. Attracting his attention was a constant battle - more red wine, more food, the bill - until it wore me down.
The food was excellent as always - tomato mozzarella, potatoes, meatballs - but the wine servings miserably small. The ambience is not good. Bocados is far too noisy but I think it's the acoustics, and can't be helped.
In summary, I think Bocados is slipping. It is becoming complacent as business is still booming. The three dishes mentioned, plus a glass of sangria and two glasses of Tempranillo came to $68. I paid $70 because I will not tip poor service. And please, management, hire wait staff that can do their job properly. I won't be returning.
