I finally went to Ten Tables...

uman | Apr 10, 2008 01:03 PM

...after wanting to go for quite some time. The food was quite good. It was a Wednesday prix fixe night, which was also great. I made reservations a week or so in advance. I arrived, went inside, and just stood there, trying to keep out of the way. I just wanted to let them know that I was there, and I'd wait outside while waiting for my table. There was no "hello", just about 5 minutes of staff walking past me, saying absolutely nothing to me, not even eye contact. I was worried. Finally after what seemed like a long time to me, I was approached by the owner. I said I was so-and-so with reservations at such-and-such a time(I was 10 minutes early). She said that I was early, the table wasn't ready yet, and to wait outside.
It was a lovely night. I waited outside until she called us in. We were seated, then a few minutes later they ask us to move so that they could accomodate a larger group. Fine, no problem. I didn't have any attitude - all was fine.

We sat down, ordered food, wine. The food was good. Quite tasty actually. My problem is that we continued to be ignored. It was such strange service. There was only one or two tables that seemed to be getting any amount of attention. I was never asked if I wanted more wine, nor if I wanted coffee with dessert. I mean there were only about 8 tables that night. It just seemed strange to be slighted with only a few tables existing.
Everyone on this board seems to love it here, so I was quite disappointed about the service part of the meal. The meal itself was delicious, but I will not be rushing back. Perhaps this was an off night?
