Bad service at Gaslight

Looks like someone else's review of Gaslight hat I responded to got removed, so I'm reposting this response:

I had some really bad service in the dining room at Gaslight not too long ago (and so did some friends at the next table who had the same waiter). Server just not on top of his game on a night when the place was 1/3 full. You know the type: very friendly, but disappears for long chunks of the evening, leaving us to scrounge for our own replacement flatware, not get the ketchup for the frites until way too late, etc.

The final insult was him bringing me the change from my check with a 15% tip already subtracted. I guess he wanted to get what he could, but I don't think I've ever seen that done at an Aquitaine Group establishment. We left rather than wait another 15 minutes for his next table visit so we could explain to him that it should be our choice how much to leave him, not his. That was really the suck. Gaslight's off my list for a while. My buddy at the next table's probably never going back; he's not the forgiving type like me.
