Never shall I dine at Chikalicious

I was out for a nice dinner with some people and wanted to go there for dessert. They were exceptionally rude.

Unfortunately, I can't comment on the actual food as I didn't actually get the privilege to eat the there. I walked in and asked how long the wait was. The matre'd or whoever he was curtly answered, "47.5 minutes." So I put name down on the self-serve list. As it is a small restaurant, I didn't want to stand INSIDE and stare at people eat. Since it was a 30 degree night, we went to coffee shop nearby and came back in 25 minutes. When I came back with 25 min. left to wait, not only was I skipped over but the waiter came over to basically be rude to me. I asked him if he had gone past us and all he needed to tell me was, "oh yes, sorry." Instead, he asked me who I was and made a point to cross my name out when I was looking at the paper. He then stopped talking to me and when I asked, if I had to wait another 40 mintes, he said, "uh...basically yes." By this time, there were 5 other people ahead of me even though his estimate was wrong. I was so mad. Then tell people it's going to be 45 minutes if you're going to be ready in 15 and then be rude when I come back EARLY instead of hover in your tiny restaurant watching other diners eat.

The attitude was a bit much. Come on, if you're going to take my money, at least pretend to be nice.
