Joe's Shanghai uptown

Had late lunch at Joe's Shanghai on sunday. Food was good, very expensive, and service non-existant. Ordered the soup dumplings - excellent, and a shrimp entree. Entree arrived while I was eating dumpling number two, and despite saying that I was not ready it stayed right on the table. Each time a waiter or busser passed they lifted the steamer lid to see if I was finished! Actually at this point I was picking away at everything, but decided that I was more comfortable taking it home. All I wanted was a leisurely lunch, read the paper, and a friendly smile. Not to be. I left a really lousy tip - if I could have found a manager I would have explained why. No they weren't full, or closing. Anyone have a better experience?
