I guess management believes it can afford to lose longtime repeat customers. We used to drive 25 minutes to go to Teresa's, and have gone there for 10+ years. With that long of a drive, we aren't "locals" and privy to knowledge of what's happening. We have lived through their massive menu revamps which, we can only gather, were met with stiff resistance since some of the old favorites reappeared on the menu ... But the latest - interior redecoration plus addition of a bar to this once fun local BYO - signals a change that is no longer worth driving 25 minutes for. Only certain (and wonderful, I should add) wait staff were ever cognizant of repeat customers. Front desk reception was always rude at best, wanting to refuse to seat a party if not all were there ("my husband is parking the car in the lot behind the church a block away, thank you very much"), and there is virtually no seating to wait. Yet, the latest was - at this "no reservations taken" restaurant, to arrive at 6PM on a Thursday to be told that the wait was 25 minutes (for a table for 2) unless we wanted to be seated at the bar. Not a problem, we indicated. "And we are no longer BYO." No mention of even a possible corkage fee for we, 'the uninformed,' of this material change in their status. So we turned on our heels, left, and paid $20 corkage at White Dog Cafe for a very nice dinner across the street. The front folks could not have been more ungracious. We don't plan to ever go back to Teresa's although we will miss our favorite waiter, Raymond.
