The food was actually very good. We didn’t have an empty plate on our table of 7. The place is also decorated beautifully. Nice light and plants and even table decor made for nice relaxed ambience. Most of the staff was also very friendly and patient.
Now this is when things got interesting.
Not more than 5 minutes after we were seated MARIA(more on how we got her name later) walked up to our table without saying hello or greeting us at all says “We have a 9 oclock reservation so you have to eat and get out before 9.” Then she walks away without any more of an explanation. It was 7:30 at that point and we hadn’t even ordered our food. So the entire time we are eating Maria keeps either staring at us or attempting to walk by casually looking at our plates. At around 8:15 she starts freaking out. Yelling at wait staff and giving us dirty looks. We didn’t rush eating especially since it took about 20 minutes for us to get dessert menus after our plates were taken from the table. We even asked her something about one of the desserts and replied “I’m not a waiter. Ask him.” Really?! Who does that?!
Her attitude was almost comical by the time we left. She was standing at the exit when we went to pay. She even had our check printed and waiting in preparation for our exit. My cousin asked her if the restaurant was on Trip Advisor and she said yes. She asked us if the review was going to be good or bad. My cousin said that the review wouldn’t be good and we then asked for her name and she told us “I don’t have a name.” And walked away. ARE YOU SERIOUS??! So, we asked one of the other hostesses her name and that’s how we found out her name is Maria.
Our waiter apologized profusely for her behavior. He was actually very pleasant even when she started getting agitated. He never rushed us, answered all of our questions, and was quite patient.
I’m surprised Maria still had a job honestly. Our experience would have been a pleasant one if she wasn’t employed here.
