My boyfriend and I were staying across the street at the coeur d'alene resort which was spectacular and saw the bonzai bistro across the street and tried it out. What a mistake that was. We walked in later on in evening and I asked the girl at door if we were coming in too late and she said, "oh no, your fine." When we got to our table we ordered a bottle of wine and 2 sushi rolls for an appetizer and took a little while, about 15 min, before we ordered our entrees to share. Well...our appies came out and we started to take our first bites into them and just as that was happening, our entrees came out two seconds later. They said that the sushi side was backed up....but we would have gladly waited had they timed out our appy and entrees properly. Not only that, but the server hardly ever came over and never did the usual pouring of the wine that you would expect in a nicer place and I was gunna brush it all of, until she came by and dropped off our bill when we had barely started eating our entrees!!! I was FURIOUS!! Since my boyfriend and I work in the industry, we know that it is incredibly rude to drop off the bill when we are in the middle of eating and not even ask or offer us dessert of coffees or last call....etc. We would never have come in if they told us they were close to closing. We were the last in her section it seemed and it was more important for her to go home since she dropped off our bill in the middle of our dinner!! We never complain and are usually big tippers.....20% or more.....but in cases like this....Horrible service and rushing customers away.....is gunna get you no tip at all.....Never go there.....it's a waste of time and money!!!!!
