My husband and I went to Sal's while we were staying in Williamsburg as part of our east coast trip for our honeymoon from the UK. Having read mostly favourable reviews on TA we were looking forward to a meal there. We arrived and were asked, not in an especially interest of welcoming tone, whether we wanted a table. We were shown to a table in the restaurant, which itself is really rather oppressive; very dark green on the walls and the tables, and altogether not a particularly nice atmosphere. We decided to stay and give it the benefit of the doubt regardless.
We went ahead and chose what we wanted to eat. No one came to take our order. We closed our menus, the waitress walked past seating another family, still no one took our order. The waitress then disappeared and there were no other waiters in the restaurant at that time so we couldn't ask to order. The waitress then came back, went straight over to the two tables that had been seated since we arrived, and took their orders. At this point we had waited just under half an hour and been completely ignored, not even been able to order drinks. So we gave up and decided to leave. On our way out my husband tried to explain to the host that we were leaving as we had been ignored. He asked my husband rather rudely to repeat this 3 times..we are English, not alien...and in the end essentially shrugged his shoulders. Absolutely appalling service in what is really a rather grim setting to start with.
