The hostess and scheduler really botched their jobs when I tried to make Saturday night reservations. After requesting a table for two BEFORE 9:30, I could hear the scheduler ask the hostess, "Who is he?". The reply: "Just some guy calling in." I was told they would have a table 9:30, the time I specifically stated was unacceptable.
Poor listening skills and inconsiderate staff - Eddie V's will enjoy their 15 minutes of fame without my business. When the luster and snobbery wears off, I may try again.
