Four of us had dinner on the patio of this nice restaurant. The patio overlooks Clear Creek, which runs through the middle of Golden, separating North from South. The person greeting us was very pleasant, got us seated, took a drink order, and advised that our waiter would serve the drinks shortly. That concluded the good service portion of the evening.
Our waiter appeared to be, shall we say, distracted, to the point of forgetting virtually 80 percent of what was ordered over the course of drinks, salad and entree. Two of us ordered pre-entree items, one salad and one soup. The waiter remembered the salad, but forgot the soup. Ten minutes after the salad had been served, we finally asked about the soup. "Be right up!" said the waiter who appeared with the soup maybe 5 minutes later.
Sometime after that, the entrees for those of us who had not had salad or soup, arrived. We assumed that the waiter had returned to the kitchen for the other two meals but, alas, that was not the case. When we finally asked about the missing meals, the response was "Be right up!" just like the soup, and the meals arrived about 5 minutes later. I ordered another drink - "Be right up!" said the waiter and, 15 minutes later, he appeared with the wrong drink.
We heard the people at the next table finally ask for their check for perhaps the third time - you guessed it - "Be right up!" he said, but didn't come back for another 10 minutes. Same thing when it was time for our check. It should be noted that during this entire time, the restaurant was not at all crowded - this was not the result of being rushed or overwhelmed. Well, maybe he was overwhelmed by having two tables at the same time.
Lest you think me to be overly critical, let me say that, when finally served, the food was very good and I would return if I were guaranteed that I would have a different waiter. I have to wonder, however, how anyone can hold down that job while being so inept at it, and does that say something about the restaurant in and of itself?
All in all, if you don't mind taking a chance on the service, the food is worth the trip but, if your waiter's name is "Sasha," I suggest that you come back on another night!
