Sorrelina RW Land/Speed Record

OK, let me just say I have been to Sorrelina many, many times and every single time I have loved it. But I went tonight for RW...and I have never eaten a meal in such a rushed state as I did tonight.

Now I know they probably want to turn tables during RW due to the decreased cost of the meal, BUT...we were served the entire dinner and got the bill within 45 MINUTES of sitting down. Yes, drinks, appetizers, entree, dessert and coffee.

Every time I had put a final bite of food in my mouth and barely got the fork back onto the plate, the frenetic bus boy would swoop in and take my plate away.

Everyone around us was ordering off the RW menu, so we were not the only ones taking advantage of a "perceived" meal deal...the place was full at 6:30pm with diners.

With drinks and coffee, our RW meal was $111...In addition to the hurried pace, our entrees came with no sides (I had the sirloin which was literally steak on a plate with an onion on top)...
Had I known, I would've ordered off the regular menu and spent a bit more.
I have never participated in RW before and I must say, we were SO rushed through this meal that it was not enjoyable...and I always sing the praises of Sorrelina.
I was actually stressed that I wasn't eating fast enough for the staff.
Such a bummer.
