My wife and I have been married 45 years, and have NEVER walked out of a restaurant, mid-meal. Until tonight. The Fullerton Inn was, without question, the worst dining experience, or should I say 'lack of a dining experience' we've had. Ordered a glass of wine before ordering our entrees...after 20 min the bartender came by and asked if we wanted something from the bar. Hmmmm. Should have been a clue. The waitress brought the Chardonnay in tiny port-type glasses. OK, we've seen that before, ie $14 for less than 4oz of wine. We now sat for another 20 min, before the waitress took our entree orders..chicken and beef. We ordered a bottle of Malbec, and asked that it not be room temp. About 20 more minutes passed and the bartender arrived w an open bottle..and said all his wine is like this (room, not cellar temp).We tasted it. Geeez, Ok, we'll live with it, cause we are needing a drink after this frustration. The wine bottle arrived. Now at 90 min after sitting down, our wine is just about done, and our 'complex order of chicken and steak' still has not arrived. We confronted the waitress with this fact, and she said she'll talk to the kitchen. Hmmmm. After another 10 min we threw $40 on the table and left. We've never done that in our lives, but the total absence of service or courtesy, was just overwhelming. Please...if you are thinking about going to this restaurant...have an auto accident or get mugged. Those will be much more pleasurable experiences.
