Terrible Service at Atasca!

Otm_Shank | Oct 26, 2009 07:13 AM

I made a reservation for 7:15 on a Saturday night at Atasca. Our party arrived at 7:20 pm. The host claimed that our reservation was for 7 pm and so could not hold our table. I tried to tell him that we had made our reservation for 7:15 and was only 5 minutes late. He then replied what would they do if you were at an airport and were 5 minutes late? I was pretty amazed that a host would say something like this to guests. We were prepared to wait for a table but after this type of service, we left rather quickly and went down the street to Portugalia.

Has anyone else had bad service at Atasca or was this just an off night? I personally will never go back to this restaurant.
