We walked in and waited by the door for a while, because no tables were ready. It is self-seating, but all the open tables had not been cleared, so the previous persons plates and beverages were still on all the available tables.
After a few minutes of standing by the door, nothing changed so finally I decided to clear a table myself, just so that we could sit down. I moved all the dirty dishes to another dirty table and wiped it down with a napkin.
Then comes the most horrible server I have ever had. Her name was something like "Chella", and she brought over a dry napkin to wipe the table down (I had already did that).
We ordered a round of drinks and waters all around. One cocktail we ordered right off the list "Negroni on the rocks", and she had to ask us to repeat that 4 times, obviously she does not know the menu. Another cocktail we ordered was the "Drunkin Monkey" which was on their old menu, but not on this menu, so I just asked if it was possible to still make that. She said "probably not, if its not on the menu, but I can ask.." For the next 10-15 minutes, we sat there with nothing. Finally ONE beer arrived, but the waters and cocktails were still no where to be found. After 20 minutes we finally walked next door to the bar and got 4 waters from the bartender.
(Meanwhile another group who came in got waters right away, but a different server was helping them)
As we were walking back from the bar side with our 4 waters, we noticed our food was ready, sitting there as our server was in a deep conversation with her co-worker. That conversation lasted another 5 minutes. I was ready to go pick-up our food because we saw it sitting there the whole time. We are paying this food, and we are sitting there watching it get cold. Obviously that did not sit well with us.
When our server was FINALLY finished with her "important" conversation with her co-worker, she came over to the table. We let her know we were not happy with the fact we still did not receive any drinks and asked her to check on it. Turns out she did not even put our drink orders in, outside of the one beer. We also mentioned we saw our food sitting there for a while, and if she could deliver it.
She rudely replied with, "This is not my job, I am usually a bartender"
When CHELLA finally brought some of our food over, we realized she did not even get our food order correct, so the incorrect dish got sent back to the kitchen.
The server helping the table next to us, named Kristen, saw we were unhappy and came to check on us. We asked if SHE could be our server instead and she agreed. Kristen finally put in our drink orders, since Chella did not do so since we ordered it 30 minutes earlier.
We also asked to speak to management, but that did not happen. That is the ONLY reason that I am writing this review, because no Management ever showed up to talk to us.
When Kristen took over, she was 100% better than Chella. She actually ordered our drinks, brought out our correct food order and told us sorry about her co-worker Chella, and that she was not surprised about Chella's (lack of) service, because she gets a lot of complaints. She also said a lot of things are different and no one really knows what is going on. (My service rating only has to do with Chella, who made the WORST impression on us)
The food was GREAT and I would go there again, AS LONG AS CHELLA IS NOT OUR SERVER! Thank you Kristen for great service, and the cooks for great food. It's too bad management did not come out to talk with us, it would have made the entire situation better to be able to inform them.
