Eggcetera on Yonge at the Eaton Centre

Truly a horrible dining experience last night. It seemed that there were so many people downtown last night and we arrived at 6:30 at Eggcetera, an hour and a half prior to the Gordon Lightfoot concert. We were seated immediately, so we were there right at 6:30. When the waiter finally got to us, it was about 10 minutes later and we placed our order for penne in a tomato basil sauce and a blue cheese hamburger. We finally received our orders at 7:20. I asked the waiter what the problem was and he said that they weren't ready for the theatre rush. (Downtown Toronto, steps to Massey Hall, Winter Garden and Canon Theatre). The pasta was stone cold, and it was pasta primavera but the hamburger was good. The waiter said I got the wrong dish. Several people walked out without finishing their meals, some who were there before us were not even served by the time we left and some that came after us were served before us.

Truly, truly, one of the worst dining experiences we've ever had. We knew that it wasn't going to be great, but we at least expected something a little bit better.

They did remove the pasta dish from our bill. I doubt very much that we'll ever go back there again.
