Felt like a nuisance instead of a dinner guest.

I am going to start off by saying maybe our server was having a bad day. But my initial impression was: " I am french and work in an american restaurant that does not even nip at the ankles of my french comrades, my life sucks."
He was extremely unfriendly, corrected my almost accurate pronunciation when ordering a wine from the list and not once smiled at me or my boyfriend. Granted, I am not looking for a new best friend when I go to a restaurant, but I would like at least to feel welcomed instead of feeling like my presence is a nuisance.
This is not to say the food wasn't good; because it was.
His service while unfriendly was at least proper.

I considered it to be a bit overpriced, but then again maybe we wouldn't have minded the price if we would have had an enjoyable experience.
