BESO service

I am sure it has been discussed before but when will the guys at Beso learn to get thier s%*t together? The brunch is fantastic and it would be a near perfect brunch place if it were not for the utter confusion, chaos, and ineptness of the service. First off you have twleve guys trying to seat you which leads to people being seated out of order causing skirmishes on 5th ave. There are even more people trying to serve you yet it seems to take them 20 minutes just to get your drink order; "No I don't want to hear about your cactus juice I just want a frickin cup of coffee already"! The drink order is always wrong which I can't figure out becuase it's this one girl whose sole job is to pour juice into glasses, how can you f that up? Plus I want my drinks before the food not during or after, this is basic restaurant service 101. Don't even bother asking for the check, that's another half an hour of your Sunday wasted away listening to the bratty kid at the table next to you scream and throw eggs at his wimpy parents. I walked out last week in complete frustration; good yuca hash browns though.
