Earth Bread Brewery just lost a customer

I have to start this off by saying I love Earth Bread Brewery, my husband and I used to go there all the time, their seed pizza is to die for and I love their beers. We have a little one in tow now so have not been able to go there in a while, but the planets seemed to align today and we were able to get out for an early dinner, and I was so excited to go there. They open at 4:30, we arrived at 10 minutes before 5:00. We learned from the hostess that they were not seating for dinner until 5:00, we had no idea about that because everything we saw said it opened at 4:30, and were informed that we could sit at the bar. Since we had a one year old with us, we asked if we could just sit at a table for the ten minutes, we did not need to be served, just wanted somewhere to sit with our baby and not disrupt the other patrons at the bar. The restaurant was empty, the tables were set and it really was not asking alot. The hostess refused, so we were stuck standing in the foyer. I asked the hostess if she could at least seat us as soon as 5:00 hit. She said fine then left. So we waited and waited and waited. At quarter past five we just left. I know 25 minutes does not seem like a long time but it is an ETERNITY when you have a baby. And what makes it worse is that when you have a baby you never get to go out and when you do you have to time it perfectly around naps, etc. We really put alot of effort into that visit, looked up what time they opened, arranged my daughters nap schedule around it. And we were not asking for anything unreasonable at all, just to sit at one of the empty tables while we waited, instead of sitting at the bar disrupting the other patrons. I understand if we arrived before the restaurant opened or were asking for somehing unusual, but it was not alot. And we were just treated with absolutely no care or consideration.

As a Plan B we walked over to Wine Their, we treated so warrmly by the staff, had some wonderful wine ($3 happy hour can't be beat), and my daughter had a great chldren's meal with the best homemade applesauce I've had. So that made up for it.
