Poisson Rouge - Great Food, weak on service

We had dinner at this BYO last night, and while the food was great, we were really disappointed by the rushed service. The table d'hote, which is the only option, includes 4 courses - appetizer, soup or salad, main, dessert. - for $37, though just about every dish, except for a few basic options, incurs an additional $5 charge. Our appetizers came promptly, and no sooner had the plates been cleared, the soup was plunked down. For a four course meal with wine and on the pricier side, we had hoped to have a more paced,relaxed meal. We asked the waittress to slow down the rest of the meal, but didn't think the request was really heard, as our mains came fairly rapidly as well. I thoroughly enjoyed every dish that was served, but was really put off by the speed of the service. We thought it was perhaps because they wanted to turn our table over for a later seating, but the restaurant was half empty before we'd finished our main courses, so this didn't hold weight. It's too bad, because otherwise I would have given the restaurant a perfect score.
