This is the last time we will visit this "tea room". The food is normally good, actually we just go because we love their lobster bisque soup. But, never again. The prices are expensive to start, but on occasion, we are willing to pay for the experience of this place as it is usually a treat to go. This time, however, we waited for a half hour for a table, then 20 more minutes for the lobster bisque soup and half a sandwich. The place was packed with women, we didn't really mind the wait, but when the sandwich came we were appalled. The half of veggie sandwich which looked great on the menu came back with a few sprigs of lettuce, a portobello mushroom the size of a dime and a swipe of cream cheese on a bun. It was sent back, only to be brought back by the waitress saying she could not fix it. She did not offer to replace it with something else so we asked her to just take it off the bill and it was sent back again. We ate the soup, which was delicious, and prepared to leave. The bill came and they had not adjusted the bill so I asked to speak to the owner (who is also the hostess). This owner stated that she had looked at the half of sandwich and saw nothing wrong and would not correct the bill. Really? You are charging eight dollars for a few sprigs of lettuce? Yes, she said. We paid the bill, I informed her we would not be back, and all I received was a shrug of her shoulders. Bottom line..we paid $34.00 for 2 cups of soup and a half a sandwich. Greed? Yes, unfortunately, I think so. Disappointing because this is a nice place but I will not be giving this owner any more of my money for an attitude like this. Sorry for the bad review, I rarely give negative reviews, but in this case it is warranted!!
