We recently made a reservation to celebrate my birthday at Le Refuge on East 82nd St. When we arrived, we were given a tiny table near the bar, because the main dining room was closed. We were not
told that we would be seated near the bar, at a tiny table when we made the reservation. The manager didn't even apologize. This was inexcusable. In addition, there was a foul smell in the area where we were seated. Needless to say, we got up and left! We went back downtown and had a great meal and birthday celebration at a neighborhood restaurant.
