Has anyone eaten at the new Zakarian restaurant, COUNTRY?

Has anyone eaten at the new Zakarian restaurant, COUNTRY? I recently ate there and the food was really good. My only complaint was with the staff. They were totally clueless. Made us wait at the bar when actually there was a table for 2 available. We sat at the bar for nearly 40 minutes when I finally decided to ask about the empty table that was in our sight for the past 40 minutes and they decided to seat us there. Hostesse's response "we wanted you to be nice and hungry" with a dombfounded smirk. Just as we sat down the waiter comes over and asks if we want sparking or still water. He doesn't even introduce himself and seemed a bit overwhelmed with being a waiter. Next time he arrived at our table I introduced myself to him and he sarcastically put his hand out for me to shake. The food was definitly tasty but the service really turned us off.
