fiore

tkm | Oct 3, 2005 11:10 PM

i went to fiore a couple of weeks ago because it had "rooftop" dining. we got there and instead of ambiance, we found a bar-like atmosphere, complete with hip-hop music. not very tasteful at all. we ordered two glasses of wine. my sisters glass had a lipstick smudge on the rim of the glass, mine had particles floating in the wine and attached to the side of the glass. instead of being rude, we decided to just send the wine back, order a couple of appetizers, and then go to dinner at another place. when we informed the waiter that we just wanted the appetizers, he told us he wasnt allowed to do this because it was a dining area. there was maybe one other table with people having dinner, the rest were empty and the other high top tables were people just drinking. so i didnt feel bad about occupying their "dining" space and not really eating dinner. i asked to speak to the manager and while i was waiting i overheard another table send their wine back because of lipstick on their glass as well. i told the manager that it was unacceptable to have three dirty glasses and we just wanted to pay for our appetizers. he was more accomadating but we then waited 30 minutes to get our check from the waiter. i do not recommend this place at all.
