Bad service @ Joe's (longish rant)

l.g.i. | Feb 10, 2003 05:44 PM

Went to Joe's for lunch on Sat. We started of w/ a split of champ, rose, the waitress brings out a brut shows it to us, we say "we ordered the rose" she says "we ran out" okay, but shouldn't she have brought it up...so we get our soup, very good tomato basil and a nice salad, finish those and order a Pinot Blanc to go with our entrees. Entrees come a small but tasty salmon and an excelent chicken ravioli...no wine..we eat, half way trough out comes the wine...bad timing...time for dessert, the cheese course looks great she tells us they're out of two of the five ( of course they're the two we're most excited about ) "ooooh darn,that'sokay", out comes the cheese happily We notice one looks like one they're out of and inquire, yeah it is, shouldn't she have brought it up ? We ask about ID-ing the others, she fumbles and mumbles then heads back to the kitchen for clarifacation, comes out w/ an equally vague discription..it's 5 wedges of cheese...that shouldn't be that hard ! Maybe it's me, and let me know if it is, but for a restaurant of the ilk it was off the map, sub-par service.
