Oyamel Disappointment

Martha | Jun 7, 2006 12:28 PM

Oyamel has been a favorite of ours after later evening arrivals at DCA. Last night, however, we got there around 9:30. We were seated and served our glass of wine and first choices. Then we were totally ignored. It made me furious! If you are going to seat people, then be prepared to serve them for the entire meal (some exceptions, but you get the point). It wasn't even 10:00 and the waiter never returned to our table to ask if we wanted something else. In fact, we both wanted another glass of wine and one more selection. When we finally gave up and decided to leave, we had to chase down someone at the front so that we could get our check. It was ridiculous and something that I'd expect, maybe, from Applebee's or Chili's, but not an upper scale restaurant like Oyamel.
