I had been to Aikou 4 times without complaint however last night left me very disappointed. I made a reservation for 4 people the night before for 7 pm. Our party of 4 showed up 10 minutes late and were told we'd have to wait for a table. We didn't mind waiting a few minutes as we were late. An unexpected friend showed up while we were waiting which brought our total to 5. We told the staff we were now 5 and they said they would try to accomodate us. A family walked in after us with 3 young children (no reservation) and they gave them the table that was clearing out. I questioned them about this and they said that was because there were children in their party that they could squeeze in to a table of four. A table of 2 opened up and two nice diners offered to switch from a table of 4 to a table of 2 to allow us to sit. When the waitress was setting up this table for us the manager vetoed this and said he could not sit us at a table meant for 4 with an extra chair at the end. He said we would have to wait for the large table where the party was just ordering dessert. At this point after waiting 1/2 hour we decided enough was enough and we would patronize another more customer friendly restaurant. They offered no apologies and none of us will be back
