On Sunday, my sweetie and I were wandering. We became disoriented and somehow found ourselves in a strange environment. We were approached by a human-like figure who was carrying this shiny disc-like object. She spoke to us and we somehow seemed to understand each other. She disappeared along with any real concept of time passing. Time stood still. Minute after minute disappeared with no explanation….. nearly an hour passed and we had no recollection of anything…..
No, sadly just the worst possible service ever. We ordered the simplest items from the menu thinking they’d be the safest bet. My honey ordered Soup & Salad. After great delay (probably 45 minutes), he received his Soup & Sandwich. Practically the same thing…!
My pasta, which was “made from scratch” thus delaying the entire meal, was a chicken with penne in a cream sauce with sundried tomatoes, garlic and olives. It was the Pasta Du Jour….. “Which Day????? ” I wondered.
The rest of the patrons of the establishment were crowded around the bar. Chances are that would be the only way you’d get noticed and served; by stalking the server….
The food, while of acceptable quality and taste, was ruined by the delay. Our mood had soured while waiting and was further ruined by having our server make lousy excuses for the service. I would have respected her more if she had said “I am sorry, I EFFED up” but to treat me like I’m stupid is really pushing my patience.
Will not return.
