Question for everyone out there about wine service. Maybe I'm old and out of the loop. I have been out to eat at a few restaurants lately. We have ordered wine and the bottle of wine was sat on the table and opened on the table. Is this normal?
We were all talking and the waiter sat the bottle on a coaster and proceeded to open the wine. We all had to stop talking and kind of sit back so the waiter's elbows didn't hit us in the face.
Is this normal wine service now? What happened?
