Went to dinner at Q4R on Tuesday night with friends, and had an unbelievable event. Love to know if anyone else has had any of these things occurr! First of all, I do realize it's a casual family run place, but please!
Got to the restaurant about 7:00 pm,there were 4 other people there. A very young and very casual young women came to serve us(perhaps a daughter/) We ordered drinks, a cranberry juice, a gingerale and an Italian beer Server came back and plopped an unopened plastic bottle of cranberry and an unopened can of gingerale on the table! When asked for glasses she responded with an incredulous"You want glasses?". When the beer orderer mentioned his glass was chipped, we again got the surprised"you want a new glass?" This was to be the theme of the evening. While we waited for our food, there seemed to be an ongoing argument with someone in the kitchen. At one point this person came out and our waitress was yelling at him "stop crying, don't cry!" By now ,2 or three more people had arrived and were on the patio. We noticed everyone but us was getting bread. When our food finally arrived and we asked for bread, you guessed it "You want bread?" As to the food ,meh. Overly salty Pasta Putanesca, overly salty Penne with Vodka, and undercooked eggplant in the Eggplant Pannini. Actually by this time we thought it was all hillarious!!!!!!!! I must admit I've lost my credulity with these friends, since it was my suggestion to go there.
Is this a total abberation, or has anyone else run into problems here?
