I don't enjoy writing negative reviews, but the problem is those experiences tend to stick out in your mind more often. I just wanted to write this review as a warning to anyone who may consider eating at Cafe Le Mar. I have a personal rule, that anything bad I try at least once more just in case they had an off night. I have eaten at CLM several times before with friends. I had the pizzas there the first time I went and they were pretty good. The service was terrible though. Next time I took an out of town client there to eat in the early afternoon and look at the water. There was 3 of us and they forgot to order 1 of the main dishes. My friend was so angry he didn't say anything, we paid the bill and left.
Last night I attempted to eat there again with some friends. Aside from the waiter taking the menus away after just 1 person ordering, the service got even worse. The forgot a main dish again and proceeded to call my friend a liar that he didn't order it, so we just smiled and said no thank you, we would take the bill and go. They brought over a fish about 10 minutes later that was not what my friend ordered. He told them to take it back. Later they came out with the fish in a to-go box and said they discounted it on the bill. We proceeded to tell them we didn't want it anymore as it was over an hour late. We made attempts at speaking to someone who speaks english at which point we were presented with another Thai who still didn't understand why we were not happy.
To cap the entire evening off, one of my friends and myself got food poisoning from the chicken cordon blue (which was actually tasty, the chicken, not the food sickness). To summarize, I have given this place multiple chances and its failed on every occasion. I will never go back.
