Bonita: Rude Service Issues are Killing It For Me

Simon | Jun 8, 2005 10:19 PM

I started going to Bonita on and off a few months ago, mainly to get that amazing chopped salad w/ shredded chicken and pumpkin seeds, with many spoonfuls of the three chili sauces ladled on...a true craving food...

But the last couple visits, the service has been beyond awful...the main culprit is a woman who may be a manager there...when we went there a couple weeks ago, on a mid-afternoon Saturday, we walked in and debated whether to stay because of the deafening music they had playing...when we asked the manager if it was always this loud, she screamed back (over the music): "That's the way it is!"...she was extremely curt and rude during the whole meal (except, of course at the very end when she brought us the check and she managed a fake smile)...similar attitude was apparent when i went there the next, most of the waiters/waitresses seem annoyed at the slightest request (e.g. to bring missing salsa or water)...i've had some friendly service there in the the place going into a decline?...or did i hit it on a couple off days?...i like the food, but the club-level music and bouncer-like service is making it inhospitable...
