5 of us went for lunch this week. I arrived early (around 12.40) to find the restaurant almost empty. I asked the hostess if we could move a small round table from the 'dinner' area about 10 feet into the dining area as the other option was to move 2 tables for four together.
Most people know that a round table is much more conducive for conversation and ensures that everyone is included.
The hostess said 'that would be too much work' - obviously with about 10 other diners there and the waitresses standing around talking to each other = they could not be bothered.
So two of them dragged two tables for four together.
One of the ladies ordered sparkling water. The waitress brought the bottle and a glass. When the guest asked for ice the waitress said 'I did not bring you ice because most people who order water don't want ice'. The guest said 'I would like some ice' The waitress said 'oh, ok then'.
One guest ordered the skirt steak and left most of it because it was too tough to eat. The waitress could easily see that most of the lunch was left but did not ask if there were any issues.
The lobster salad sandwich at $18 was mostly giant brioche bread.
The presentation of all the meals was very sloppy.
It was a birthday and they did offer a free dessert for the birthday girl which was nice and the chocolate cake was very good. The waitress brought five forks but I had to get up and go to another table that was partially set to get side plates for us to put the cake on.
I agree with Courtney B that the staff are uptight. There seemed to be two hostesses and the first one I encountered could not have been more disinterested.
I think this is a great place to meet people for drinks. But at these prices and for the 'attitude' service I would go across the street to Tommy Bahamas for a meal any day.
