Zambra and Stemware

Has anyone else noticed that Zambra will not give you correct stemware for your wine unless you ask for it? I was there on Sunday night with a family member and we spent $100 but when I ordered a glass of wine 1/2 way through meal it was served in a generic 12 oz house wineglass. Since Zambra is a great restaurant and wine bar I think they should always offer crystal stemware. I was not able to fully appreciate and enjoy my red wine in the small glass. I called back today and talked to Peter Slamp, owner, and he told me that when you order a bottle for $75 and up you get crystal stemware. Good servers, I think, should offer crystal stemware to their guests. We left a 20% tip but I'm not sure I will go back to Zambra anytime soon. The Zambrarita that we had at the beginning of the meal was great.

Anyone else feel the same way about the importance of stemware at good restaurants?
