My girlfriend and I recently returned from a week in Toronto. After reading some reviews from this forum, we decided to have a meal in "Pickle Barrel"
When we arrived there was a 15 minute wait, which was fair enough. We were then seated at a table in the corner and given the menu to browse. Generally a waiter/res will come around and acknowledge you and ask if you would like any drinks. This was not the case, we were sitting down for at least 20 minutes and in this time, not one person said anything or even acknowldged us. We could not even grab a member of staff's attention. It was like we were just dumped in the corner and forgetten about. I find this type of service terrible!! In the end we just grabbed our coats and walked out!
I appreciate this is my own experience, but I believe this sort of thing is important when visiting a restaurant.
If anyone else has had any other bad experience's with this restaurant please add to the post, I feel if people are considering visting this restaurant they should know any bad experiences.
