Bonjour Brioche - insanity!

millygirl | Nov 17, 2007 09:48 AM

I've been to Bonjour Brioche many their food but like many others on this site, realize the service is pretty hit and miss. Get this one. We were a party of 3 for lunch yesterday. One of the wait staff approaches us and says it only be a few minutes since a few tables were getting ready to leave. Fine - he shows us to a table for 2 and proceeds to explain, very nicely I must add, that because it is prime time for them they cannot afford to give us a table for 4 and have the one seat empty. And guess what, we bought in to it. Soooo we all squish in to a table meant for 2 and he brings us an extra chair to put along the side. Which I must add was cold and wet from being stored on the patio. Not only that, but they don't even have a coat rack or anywhere to put your coat. The banquettes were pretty crowded and you were basically left to bundle the coat on your lap. About 20 minutes go by and I happen to notice a single woman walk in - what does he do - puts her at a table for 2 - with one seat empty. I know I'm rambling here but honestly I just couldn't believe it. The thing is the food is so damn good it's like the can get away with anything. I mean they don't even accept debit or credit. Has to be cash only. Everytime I go there, I swear never again. But day after day, the place is packed. Is it just me?? Bottom Line - don't go to Bonjour Brioche unless you are a party of 2 or 4. Better yet, don't go at all.
