Bad Service in SF

James | Dec 21, 200405:22 PM

The best service I've ever had - head and shoulders above anything in SF Bay (including Gary Danko and French Laundry!) - is in, of all places, Los Angeles. The restaurant is called Bastide. More restaurateurs need to visit the place and take notes.

I refuse to go to Aqua and Michael Mina simply because the service has been so bad. I'm talking perspiring waiters who never refill your water until you flag them down from across the hall. Even the best places (Gary Danko, French Laundry, La Folie) seem to be good service, not GREAT service.

Anyone have exemplary service anywhere??? I'd love to give them a shot.
