Just ate at the new Metropolitain restaurant in Ottawa (once for dinner, once for lunch) Beautiful decor (Paris bistro theme a la Balthazar in NYC), good food...but ATROCIOUS service. This city makes me want to pull my hair out some times. Can a new restaurant in Ottawa afford to have surly, unhelpful waiters? At lunch, the servers simply disappeared for long tracts of time, leaving us waiting about 10 minutes alone for the bill (at LUNCH!). And at dinner, I actually had to ask the waiter if there was a problem, he was so rude to us. If someone knows the owners, tell them!!!!
