We came here with 6 in our party on the recommendation of our daughter and son-in-law who were with us. We were on are way up to Santa Ynez. We arrived at 8:30 am amid a light drizzle. We were told it was a 15-20 minute wait for inside for our party size with no one else waiting. That was fine. There was outdoor seating, which was empty, (probably because of the drizzle :)). The only place to wait is on the steps, so we got one of those buzzer thingys and sat in our car right at the bottom of the steps within eyesight of the hostess who would be seating people.
More people came, and were seated quickly understandably because of the unique seating arrangements inside, really there are only a few spots that can handle 6 people, so we understood.
Then we noticed a family of 4 came and were seated outside on the patio. It was now 35 minutes and we needed to be moving on so we went up to see about our reservation since we had not been buzzed, even thought we had been told 2x's they were preparing our table 15 minutes before. Now, standing inside we were told they were preparing our table again. What was the problem? Then looking over we saw the waitress give our table to the group of four that had been sitting on the patio. When we drew the hostesses attention to this, she was like "well they were sitting outside and didn't like it because of the drizzle"
Our thought was, well, that was their choice because they wanted to be seated right away and they came 20 minutes after us and we have waited already 35 minutes and now bumped us back yet another 15 minutes (we were told). yikes, we came with no wait and were now going to wait 50 minutes? The wait staff who did this seemed annoyed with us - we saw some eye rolling, and yes, some huffing as they walked by us, because the hostess went over to her and let her know we were a little unhappy, but did not comment on it.
We needed to get moving up the road so we sat at the counter (6 seats) until a table opened up 10 minutes later and we moved over.
Our waitress we had was nice about moving us. That being said, we loved our breakfast, it was good and filling for the start of our day.
So food was good, staff attitude, well depends on who you get. And most definitely watch your place in line :)!
