Beacon -- NOT impressed...

Max Million | Oct 24, 200502:51 PM

Called Beacon just before 1pm on Saturday, asking if I needed to make a reservation for two for lunch today. Was told walk-ins would be fine.

Shortly thereafter, drove about 40 mins from the Valley and was shocked to see a 'closed' sign on the door! (A few people still dining inside).

"We close at 2pm." My phone read 2.01pm. I kid you not.

Yet on CITYSEARCH it states they are open 'till 2.30pm!!

She went off to consult with the kitchen, but the answer remained the same. Closed.

By now, I was furious. "We called ahead! We just drove 40 minutes. Couldn't someone have said something when we phoned?!"

Honestly, I didn't expect a 'cafe' to keep restaurant hours. And who closes at 2pm? On a weekend, when there are so many shops and shoppers around the Helms area?

Don't think I'll be returning.
