Terrible Service at Victory 44

salvage7 | May 18, 201110:53 AM     22

It's unfortunate that after spending nearly an hour here last night, I cannot comment on the food at all. We arrived at about 7:15, hoping to try the 2-for-1 Tasting menu. Upon arrival, we were not greeted by anyone, as there doesn't appear to be a host/hostess stand. Eventually a man told us to sit wherever we liked. We found a table and began the longest wait either of us have ever experienced. In hindsight, I certainly should have approached somebody.

At 7:45, a waitress finally came over and asked if we needed a drink (disregarding the ridiculous wait, not to mention the fact we were never given a drink menu). Inexplicably, she left before we could answer and gave us a drink menu and a couple of waters (a 30 minute wait for water!). She then left again and said she'd be right with us for our order. 15 minutes later, she still wasn't back. We decided we'd leave at 8. At 8 on the dot a different waiter came over and asked if we were ready to order. We gave him our drink order and ordered the tasting menu. When we ordered the tasting, he looked toward the board (where it said 5-8pm), and I swear, was about to tell us the 2-for-1 deal expired at 8. He appeared to change his mind when he saw our angry anticipatory faces. Instead, he meekly apologized and said the tasting menu would take a very long time, and we would likely be there for 1.5-2 hours. We finally got up and left. Incidentally, we went to Taqueria la Hacienda and had an amazing meal for half the price with a tenth of the wait.

I've literally never experienced service this bad, it was really inexcusable, and I'll likely never be going back there.
