“Lack of attention to clients and familys”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Waiting to be seated with my family, another and noisy group arrived and has been placed before us ,without explanation, not even a look asking understanding in face of that "invasion". Never back. People says that there the meet is good. Well, there are many others places in São Paulo where meet is good AND clients are properly treated.

, Gerente at El Tranvia, responded to this review, July 10, 2012
Dear JGMB, As owner of the restaurant El Tranvia, I am very embarrassed and upset by what happened. Do not under any circumstances admit it that the waiting list is not respected. I apologize sincerely on my behalf and on behalf of the Restaurant and I assure you tomerei nescessarias measures so that this never occurs. It would be very helpful if you could tell the day of the event so I can fix the problem more quickly and definitively. Take this opportunity to ask if there is a possibility that one of people who were in the group that was sitting before you have to be present before you arrive, because it occurs veses. I wonder if you give me the opportunity to welcome you again in my restaurant so I could apologize in person. You and your family would be my guests. graciously
