. Our reservation was for 7:30 pm inside table which we made personally . As soon as we arrived things went downhill. After waiting for about fifteen minutes and seeing many being seated we inquired when we would get our table. Finally the hostess tried to seat us at a table outside which we declined.Our reservation clearly stated inside table only. She seemed to be over her head in trying to figure out the logistics of that place .After another five minutes I asked the women behind the front desk why we could not have the table that i noticed was empty in the next room . She indicated she would find out.She came back with the owner .He then proceeded to tell me the table was not available. I asked him why and he indicated he was saving it for any disabled couple who might come. I pointed out that since there was no disabled access to the restaurant and all diners would have to walk up about steep eight stairs at the entrance ( The restaurant at one time was a private home ) his comment did not appear useful. Finally he seated us at the table. After we started to sit down he went into a semi rage and in front of another couple indicated he would not honor any future reservations we might make. This speech went on for several minutes which included the phrase he lives at the restaurant.
The waiter was outstanding. Fully competent. We began to order and since we had decided to bring our own wine and pay the reasonable corkage fee of twenty dollars.The waiter noticed the wine was a vintage bottle and said he would be back with better wine glasses. When he returned i noticed they were not but said nothing. The wine was good and we had a visit from the restaurant wine expert . He gave his approval and came back with very nice glasses. We were later to find out the owner of the restaurant had given orders not to lend us the use of the better glasses but by luck we did get them.We both had fish Sole and Grouper both on a scale of one to ten were about a six or seven .
During diner I was talking to the other couple in the room at a separate table and apologized for the owners outburst . While doing that the owner came by and again indicated he would not honor any future reservations. I am not a psychologist but this gentlemen has big issues.On our way out we were told our experience was not unusual. The staff are not happy campers.This was totally unnecessary since we had decided at the get go we were never coming back and would have left earlier but it was Saturday and difficult to get another reservation..
During diner we heard a loud noise and were to find out that in a room next to ours a man had taken a water glass and dumped it on the head of another diner in the room . A pushing fight insued. We did not witness any of this but were told this . The above isa exact course of events that occured on the date referenced.Our check came to 92$ without tip.
I eat out every night and have never had any experience like this ever. The owner appears to think he is running a three star facility. Flash he is not .
