The Common Man places really aggravate me. We ate at Church Landing on Monday night. Awesome wedge salad and steamed muscles but the service drives me beserk!!! When they first brought us over to a table by the window, the sun was setting - blinding us. We commented before sitting and the host just said "it will move fast". But after just sitting, we realized it was going to be bad and luckily a trainee (hostess) noticed our concern and came over and said "would you like to move away from the sun to another table?" - (maybe the trainee should be training the host)! Then our waitress had such a lousy personality, no cheerfulness here, had to ask for everything and place wasn't busy at all. Even as leaving the place, I thanked the host and he only winced, never saying a word.
Not sure who's in charge of training their staffs, sad that it isn't consistent either - Largo (also in Meredith) seems to have a better personality and customer service skills.
Anyone else have issues?
