Granted, we don't get out much, but when we went to a restaurant in San Francisco a little while ago, we noticed that nobody's wine bottle was put on the table, but were all lined up on the bar at the end of the room. The waiters were very attentive in zooming in with the bottle and refilling glasses, so I doubt anybody was waiting with an empty glass. But I would find this annoying anyway, mainly because my husband will drink all his wine immediately, while I tend to nurse it at first to drink more later. So with waiters refilling, he gets all the wine after the first glass. I do not like this. Not at all.
Have those of you who've been around lots more than us seen this style of service? And what do you think of it?
