phx - what place are you glad you gave a 2nd chance

i know everyone has bad experiences, they happen :( what place did you give a second chance after a bad initial visit, and now, you're so glad you did?

here's mine :

padre's, on camelback near 10th-ish street

my first visit was awful - the wine was stale, the chips were ancient, the steak was like a tire, the waiter surly, and every single person there was loud, rude, and obnoxious. UGH

but - recently went, and - the clams app was fantastic. the shrimp entree was divine, the margarita was excellent, chips/salsa great, wait staff friendly and efficient - it was a really good meal, quality ingredients ably prepared, in a nice friendly place with good staff. i've been back for drinks since, even!!

anyone else have a place you're glad you tried again?
