We came on the night of April 5th with our puppy, Pippa, having heard how well dogs are treated here. We’d been many times before, but this night stood out.
It seems as if there was some sort of staffing issue that left them extremely short handed. After a long wait, we got seated by the star of the night, the hostess with the septum ring. While the entire staff worked hard to keep a positive, attentive atmosphere, she really stood out to us. What could’ve been an otherwise nasty setback for our dinner plans became a really enjoyable evening.
Really, anybody who is good to Pippa wins our gratitude. Not only did the hostess bring out a bowl of ice water but she also brought out a beef rib which turned our usually rambunctious pup into a contented and distracted sweetheart. That alone is a miracle.
Food was noticeably tastier than usual. In times like this, it’s easy to drop the ball, but somehow our dining experience was BETTER than usual.
We watched the staff deal with some really inconsiderate people (who doesn’t know to see the hostess before sitting!?) with impressive restraint and undeserved kindness.
Overall, I’ve seen a lot of restaurants suffering from a night of staffing woes, and I’m not sure I’ve ever seen such skillful handling of a really tough situation. We will be back soon!
