Sadly on Saturday, we didn't enjoy the usual wonderful experience I was made to feel like I had muscled my way to a table that was reserved when in fact, one of the waiters had seated us there after we had perched on stools at the bar area for a while waiting for service. As that table emptied and the waiter cleared away the dishes, I asked him if the table was free and he allowed us to sit there.
We then had to wait a while for menus so my husband Steve went to the cash register to pick up the menus and was advised that as we were at a table, it was table service so we continued to wait. But then the lady in charge that evening swanned past, started to take our order but then said that we shouldn't be seated there as it was reserved and demanded I point out which waiter said we could sit there and in the rush I couldn't remember nor did I want to accuse and cause someone trouble so I just shrugged and she scolded us some more and said that she'd told us all tables were reserved so we shouldn't have taken the table and should sit at the bar. I tried to explain we were there originally and moved over with the permission of a waiter but you know when someone refuses to believe you and she just kept demanding who; it was just too much so I stood up and it was easier to leave. And when I said, we'd just leave, she was happy to see us go so that eradicates any feeling of being a valued customer.
I'm just so disappointed now. I've reviewed this place, recommended it, Instagrammed our weekend seafood lunches, brought friends and family and now I'm just so "meh" about it. I can't get excited after that experience.
