To start, and to be fair, I will admit right now this review isn't about the quality of food. After all the glowing reviews, we attempted to eat here, but never did. We arrived at 5:20. The place was completely empty, except for some staff at a back table having a meeting. The hostess asked if we had reservations, and I told we did not (as I looked around seeing nothing but empty tables, I found her question even a bit odd), but I explained since it was so early that I was hoping that would still be okay. At first it seemed she was going to sit us, but then another man, I presume perhaps the manager, stared into the computer screen and mumbled something to her. Suddenly, she announced that they were completely booked at 6 and that we'd have to sit in the walk-in bar area. Initially we agreed to this, but my 6'1" tall husband found himself sitting in furniture that was better suited for children! His knees awkwardly touched the end of the table, as did mine, and eating would have been nearly impossible unless we wanted to straddle the tiny table or lean painfully forward. It quickly became apparent that this wasn't really meant as a serious dining spot, but more for casual drinks and perhaps a few appetizers and we made the decision to leave. Perhaps I am wrong, but I no wonder if they refused to sit us in the dining area because of how we were dressed. We were in town as tourists, both wearing tennis shoes, my husband in shorts. This is an area of town where business folks wearing dresses and heels, and suits abound. I feel if we were "appropriately dressed" we may have been treated differently. We could have been nearly done dining when their first "reservations" rolled in. I feel their image was their highest consideration and not really giving us lowly tourists service. Our money is just as good as anyone elses, and we have plenty to spend on good food! Just too bad we didn't get the chance.
