Voir's Sparrow review (moved from Quebec board)

alixium | Sep 14, 2009 08:31 PM

Gildas Meneu reviews the Sparrow in this week's edition of Voir. I have no comment on the review itself (positive all the way), but was very disappointed/shocked/ruffled when I read this passage at the end, where he sums up the "negative" points:
"Impossible de réserver pour moins de quatre personnes. Très irritant. Alors on a triché: nous étions trois, et on a fait semblant d'attendre le quatrième. Je reconnais ma mauvaise foi, mais c'était pour la bonne cause..."
(quick translation: reservations are not accepted for parties of less than 4, so he lied, reserved anyway "for 4" even if they were three, and pretended to be waiting for someone through the meal. He claims it was for "the good cause").
He evidently thinks of himself as more important than the regular clients, and that he is above rules. Wow. I really hope this does not incite readers/future clients to do the same.
I am the only one frustrated by this?
