After a wait of over an hour for our reservation and with profuse apologies from the hostess and owner, we were finally seated on the patio for dinner. In retrospect, I am not sure why they couldn't have seated us at one of the empty marble-topped tables out there if diners hadn't vacated the tables being used. Anyway, we thought were ok with the delay, but it tainted our experience. The sun had set and it got quite chilly, it was late to dine, and we were overly hungry. I think it would have been nice to have been offered an app while we were waiting. In fact, after an hour the hostess took the app order, but then a table became open, and she cancelled the order, so we had to wait another 15 minutes for the server to take and put the order in again. The waitress was minimally attentive and courteous and somewhat abrupt. For example, when she brought the entrees, one plate had no vegetables, so I asked about them. She replied, "I'm bringing them. I only have two hands." (The veggies for one meal were on a separate plate.) The food: delicious...both fish dishes were tasty and well-cooked, vegetables a bit crunchy. IMO the cod could've used more sauce, though. We were comped dessert by the owner. But I don't eat dessert and we weren't too eager to stay longer (so could the app have been comped instead?) but we opted for one - the chocolate mousse - which was delicious. Arrival time: 7:20; finished with dinner: approx 9:30. We've eaten there many times over the years, and will return, though it might be a while. The owner and hostess were both attentive and assured us the long wait was unique. In hindsight, it could have been handled better. And, next time, if there's a wait, we'll be much more proactive!
