Poor service at Nota Bene lunch

dalton48 | Oct 9, 2008 06:48 AM

I finally had lunch at Nota Bene, and while the food was excellent, the service was definitely not. We had to flag down our waiter to place our order, had empty water glasses for most of the meal, and had to grab him again for the bill after sitting for a while, plates removed, no dessert menus yet offered.

It was busy when we got there, but half-empty when we left, and there were a number of wait staff on the floor. Definitely none of that careful napkin folding happening when we were there.

I'll try dinner soon, but not sure I'd return for a business lunch.
