A group of friends, 3 of us, went on a Thursday night at about 6:15. Then we were joined by 2 other friends.
Happy Hour was from 4:30 - 6:30.
The restaurant was not crowded at all, many tables upstairs and downstairs were available.
While we were waiting for our friends, we went up to the bar and ordered 3 happy hour drinks.
Our friends came and we asked for a bigger table and they ordered drinks and we sat down to drink and eat, as it was awkward at the bar to have a conversation with 5 people standing.
Again there were many tables available for dining.
The service had a attitude towards us, and the waiter told me, that it was not OK to order hapyy hour drinks and take them to our table.
(? I didn't understand this as there were many tables and bar space available and many times one gets a drink while waiting for ones table to open up. Also, we were joined by two toher friends making our table now 5 for dining. and we all ordered entrees and salads, and one had another drink, aT THE TABLE, post happy hour.)
So, it felt awkward to be "on the outs" with the waiter, while we dined, and 3 of the diners said this had never happened to them before, service with an attitude,.... so... I do not know what to make of this. It was my first time at restaurant, and it was rated the #2 restaurant in Truckee.
The food - the salads were good. and I say just good,because although they were tasty, they had not enough lettuce in them. The ravioli was very good, and the other dishes were very good. Just the salads seemed skimpy. The soup was excellent, and the decor was lovely downstairs, especially as the place became alive after 7:30 PM and the tables filled up.
it was a beautiful interior that one was happy to dine in, in such a wonderfully preserved town such as Truckee, but the service and lack of checking in, prompted us to leave and move homewards for tea and dessert.
