Pizza has improved generally in the last decade in the US, which made our pizza last night decent, but not at all special. The place is noisy, but I think that is considered atmosphere these days by a lot of people. It is nice to see families and groups having fun.
The place is handy, being next to a huge cineplex, and the service was generally competent, but there were a number of things that seemed to indicate management is just going through the motions. The place has four big screen TV sets spread around, so when asked by a hostess if we wanted to sit in the dining room or bar, I said I'd like to be where I could see the Husky game (UW, hometown team, conference game in Ariz). She winced, thought a bit, then led us to a table with a good view of a screen showing snowmobile jumping competition. After looking around and not seeing the game I let it go, but later I noticed no one was paying any attention so I asked our waitperson if it could be changed and after a few minutes she was able to put the game on. Later on my way to the loo I noted the game was on a screen in the bar. How obtuse is that for customer sensitivity? The place is offering what a customer asks for, and the hostess either doesn't know or care? The other obvious management bungle was the pepper flakes on the table were all considerably bigger than the holes in the shaker. I'm not shy about unscrewing the top and flicking out what i need, but surely if management were paying attention, that would have been dealt with.
And finally one of the wine "specials" we ordered had a vinegary finish as if it had been open several days (I know because wines sometimes sit around at home longer than they should). The wines in general were a good pour at decent prices, but it is incompetent to feature an upscale wine then not serve it at its best.
