Downhill Alert Divino in Brentwood

It is with sadness that I write that one of my favorite casual Italian places is seriously going downhill. I had the worst service tonight at dinner- downright offensive and I thought others might want to be informed before they pay to be insulted at dinner.

My husband and I sat down to our meal and ordered a bottle of Barbera from their wine list. When the waiter uncorked our wine he poured the taste into a small white wine glass. When we politely requested the red balloon glasses that the table next to us had, he said in a loud voice that our $36 bottle of wine did not qualify for the good glasses and that we should have ordered a more expensive bottle if we expected to be served with such glasses.

I'm not sure what the waiter was trying to infer by such a loud statement but it certainly hushed the tables next to us on either side. This is a restaurant that in the past we have spent significant money at, even hosted a birthday party there where we have always been quite generous, but after such rude service, no apology, and quite disappointing food we will never return again. Just thought other chowhounds should be warned of such horrendous service.
