Square One

Has anyone had experience with really terrible service lately at Square One? It was so bad on Sunday that I have vowed never to go back. I've been probably five or six times in the last four months and have usually not had a problem. However, Sunday was a mess. My party of seven was seated on the patio. We ended up waiting about 15 minutes for menus; coffee and water didn't come for about 20 minutes (we flagged down another staff person for that); and our server didn't appear for 30, even after we had let several people know we were very ready to order. When our food did arrive, there was about a ten minute gap between when three of us received our breakfasts and when the rest of the table did. On top of everything, three of the orders were wrong. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy when we arrived. The kitchen also appeared to be able to keep up because other diners seemed to be getting their food in a pretty timely fashion. Also, our server wasn't new, we've actually had her before. So, any of the the usual factors that would cause bad service didn't seem to be in play. I'm really disappointed because I've really liked having another breakfast option in the neighborhood
