"Take Another Cab"

Perhaps it was an off Saturday night? But, how do you come unprepared for the most important restaurant night of the week?

Went with another couple to Gypsy Cab Company in St. Augustine. Been there twice before over a 2-3 year period and always had good experiences. Other Hounds have also had good experiences so they have said. This time though, it was so bad I felt the need to vent.

Our waitress literally spent 10 minutes with our friends explaining that they could get half sized entrees - they wanted to order a appetizer and were worried that they would not be able to finish everything. Anyway, the waitress completely forgets the appetizer and simply brings them the half sized entrees.

I ordered pasta with fresh clams - It was barely edible. The clams were almost like rocks. To compound the disaster, I asked for some grated cheese when the dish arrived. The cheese showed up just before the plates were being picked up. It was really quite an unpleasant dinner.
