Not uplifted at Lift

J and V | Jun 20, 2011 10:56 AM

Father's Day at Lift: arrived at 1055 for 1100 and informed that elderly parents with cane could not be seated because the reservation was for 1100 (the resto was empty and the servers were all present, just not "officially" open yet). Server could not have been less interested. 3/4 had the buffet and every plate sat on the table until we caught her eye and asked for it to be removed. Nice dessert display but no sign of spoons on the table or beside the desserts to eat the pot de creme type dessert. When asked, the maitre-d had to ask one of the busboys to find a spoon (this seemed like an imposition on the maitre-d although the busboy was pleasant and helpful).

Food was nice but nothing could compensate for being treated like an imposition on the server's time on a special day.
