Our family put Periwinkles under the ultimate pressure test, invading their pleasant space with 54 rowdy people having a family reunion, ages 1 through 97, for dinner on a Friday evening.
The friendly wait staff was more than up to the challenge, as was the kitchen. Tables were pre-arranged in long rows for us - great for the family but a major hassle for the waitresses, who had to squeeze, slither and slide through us all to take orders and deliver food and drinks. And they did it with smiles and amazing alacrity!
The service was surprisingly fast, considering the crowd we presented, and the food was simply delicious, fresh and hot. Special orders, dietary needs and the inevitable couple of cranky diners were no problem for them, and they even broke up the checks the way we wanted with no complaint!
I've seen where a couple of reviewers have complained about this restaurant, and all I can say it that they must be the most impossible, ill-tempered diners on the planet, because we threw everything we could at them, and they stood up to the test, and brought out the taste!
Beware Periwinkles - we WILL be back!
