Went here on the recommendation of a friend for "an amazing night out in an amazing location," and we were amazing, first at the location. Glenmere Mansion is just beautiful, no other words can describe it. The food - also amazing, spectacular dishes presented in a beautiful manner. Sadly, the service was not up to par.
Our waitress, Sarah, was extremely rude, rushed, and at times plain mean. We were able to get passed this as mean people are mean people, nothing you can do about it except let it roll off your shoulders. We really hope Sarah either will be spoken to or just plain fired because as a waitress she is supposed to represent the restaurant and its' values, but she sure did a terrible job at doing that. On our way out we even told the Manager about her, and she said she would do something about it.
But besides that, such an amazing place. Special thanks to Christie (the manager), Alan (the owner and host), Emily (hostess), Ryan (brought us our food), Charles (butler), and Sam (busgirl). Without those people I'm sure that our experience would have been far worse.
