Zero is more appropriate.
A team of boys coming in to celebrate a sports championship was greeted first with a 20 minute wait to be seated. The hostess spent half that time talking the moms into having the group sit in the bar area.
Once (eventually) seated, the bartender/server came over to explain how he couldn't handle us all at once - because some of us were seated in his section, and some not (gee, wonder why, oh because the hostess insisted we all sit in the bar area with not enough space to handle us all).
On at least 3 occasions, the bartender/server came over to tell us how difficult it would be for him to handle us.
Well - - TWO HOURS LATER -- we STILL have a team of hungry boys. No food!
Upon explaining this to the manager, HE at least was accommodating enough to apologize and say the bill was on BDUBs Plainfield. That's a nice gesture, and we all appreciated the effort.
But all for naught. Please, don't add insult to injury by bringing out STONE COLD FOOD! Trying to make it up to us with apologies and a tab covered by the house is great. But then serving cold food, well, that pretty much negates the whole thing.
Yep, a two hour wait for whining from the bartender/server (who's apparent injury was inflicted upon him by the hostess) and cold food.
Never again. Plainfield's REGIONAL MANAGER should step in and reconfigure. What a shame. The restaurant lost AT LEAST a $600 tab, plus tips, and all of our future business, PLUS got this glowing review on Yelp.
