The LaFayette House is the most overpriced, snotty restaurant I've ever been in my life...and I have eaten at some really classy restaurants around Boston. We'd never been to the LaFayette House, so, we thought we'd take my mother there for Mother's Day brunch, and, although our sweet, hardworking waitress was great, the manager and owner ruined our day.
So, here's our story......
The manager, clearly flustered at the obscene crowds that were there for brunch, walked into the bar area where we, and about 15 other patrons were waiting for a table. Upon entering the room, he was chatting with one of the 85-year-old hostesses, and announced something like, "They've only been waiting for five fuc*$%# minutes." We were shocked!! Everyone in the room stared at each other in awe thinking, "Did that just happen?" The manager continued about his business as though nothing had happened, despite the fact that he dropped the f-word in front of about 5 children under the age of 10.
We were so bothered that before we left this overpriced eatery, we thought we'd chat with the owner about his manager's behavior. He NOT ONLY told us that we must've misheard, but also he told my mother (on Mother's Day) that he did not believe her when she insisted that she had heard the manager use the f-word loud enough for an entire room to hear.
So, I wanted to share this story in case anyone is thinking of checking this place out. Just be warned that, if anything should go wrong, you will not be treated with respect, no matter how right you are.
This place is as pathetic as its manager and owner.. Save your money! It's NOT worth it. Go to Patriot's Place for a better experience and less spending!!
