Pearl Oyster Bar - Tired of the Attitude

Here is one instance where I love the food at an establishment but am beginning to doubt if it's worth putting up with the poor attitude.

There is a waiter that takes names and seats guests who can be very sarcastic.

When my date asked what vegetables were served with the grilled whole fish, the waitress replied "Fresh seasonal vegetables". What type, my date wanted to know. "FRESH SEASONAL VEGETABLES" was the nasty response, as though we were annoying the waitress with such a silly question.

On another night, my aunt, who is watching her carbs, asked for the roll served on the side when ordering her lobster roll. The waiter gave a nasty look and said "Rebecca doesn't like these special orders - and it's way too busy tonight".

Give me a break. was this going to turn the kitchen upside down? Then, when he brought the plate with the bread on the side, he said "It's your lucky night"!

A couple of weeks ago, I saw some regular customers showering the waitstaff with gifts and holiday hugs. I'm wondering if I'm alone in questioning the service/attutude here.
