It had been about an hour and 15 mins since we were seated. Needless to say we didn't order dessert, we got our things together and left. As we were leaving, expecting a crowd of waiting customers, we were surprised to find no one in the lobby waiting and staff standing around with seemingly nothing to do! We tipped low that day. This was 6 years ago and I have never set foot in that restaurant again. When people suggest it I tell them I had really bad service there and will not give them my business.
Ugh. That's awful. Very bad business. Why would want to get customers out the door?? I was at a restaurant once with a group of 18, and we were all drinking bar drinks. The waitress brought us all our checks when we were done with our meals, so we had to start getting up and going to the bar. She missed out on quite a bit of revenue because of that. When she realized we were still drinking she said, "Oh, I'm sorry, I could have gotten those for you!" but when we needed them she was nowhere to be found.
