We stopped in tonight...we were there at 3:40 and they open at 4 so we waited in the car...No one offered a glass of wine early even though staff was clearly on site. When we did get inside they had a sign at the door that said to see the bartender for drinks and the 'bord'...which we did. We were then informed that the kitchen did not prepare anything at all until 5. That was disappointing since the sign said they would..We would take our business elsewhere for dinner. Then a lovely lady came to tell us that they would make us the 'bord' (as they should since the sign saying they would was at the entry door). So we ordered...upon getting our check we were told that this would never happen again. This is cannot be a private locally owned and run establishment. I can not imagine that a cracker board disrupted the kitchen and if it did we spent plenty $$ to get it. I am so sad about this. Not 1 single other patron was there. Our bill was over $100!! Should the owner not be happy for the revenue?? Clearly not!! This place has a few really wonderful and talented bartenders but this is at least the 3rd time we have felt like they did not want us, our age group or our money. I think this especially upsetting because we have owned our own business in this city and have taken care of folks even on Christmas Day.SAD SAD ME!!! Bye Bye Lakely .
Is there still an option for a tasting menu?
One last cocktail from Miles! Best of luck on your new adventure!
Breakfast porridge is fantastic.
