Temple Grill, New Haven - worst service ever.

EastRocker | Jul 2, 200812:32 PM     7

I just got back from one of the single worst dining experiences of my life. I went to Temple Grill (152 Temple St, New Haven, CT ) on my lunch break. They are close to my office which is the only reason I have continued to go there until now. I have had some pretty spotty service before but this one took the cake. I went in right at 2pm, the dining room was less than half full, and maybe another 3 tables were full outside. I ordered the smoked salmon plate. (note: smoked salmon, not a single thing on it that even needed to be cooked) and it took over an hour. Let me repeat, OVER AN HOUR. Then after I am finished, I am sitting there, now very late to get back to work, with my napkin on my plate and I have to corner the guy to get my check. And they didn't even comp my iced tea.
