“RETHINK EVENT at Blue Fountain( not like it used to be)”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

Went to bridal shower there...after 3 hrs the staff came in and started removing the wine and beverages form tables. While bride was opening gifts , the staff was lined up outside room like vultures waiting to clear the tables. Come to find out another party was expected shortly and they needed to clear the room. The groom was made to start carrying gifts out the back door. the shower ended abruptly, pure chaos. Guests were made to go out the back door as other party was waiting in the hallway. Very embarrassing..Poor bride. Staff became rude , began sweeping floor while guest were still in room.....AWFUL.

“Don't have an event there!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

I went to a bridal shower at this restaurant. It started at noon - and I heard it was going to be over at 3:30. While the bride was opening her gifts, the wait staff (at least 6, who had been standing in the doorway) started clearing the tables at around 2:20. The wine, water and soda was taken off the tables - along with all the glasses and dishes. It was very hard to see the gifts opened with all this activity in the room. There was another group waiting for a 4 PM event, which is why the big rush to get us out. I cannot understand why it would take one hour to set the room back up. Very poor management on the part of this restaurant. This will definately be on my "Do not have an Event" there list. I felt very bad for the bride and her family. How embarassing!

This place never let's you down. Food is always great. Portions are huge and the sauces are always fresh and tasty. Bread and olive oil are always available .

“Way overpriced for lousy food and slow service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2013

My husband and I ate there last night, 2/12/13 and it was our first, and last time there! The prices vs portion size are unbelievably off balance. The eggplant had a disturbing aftertaste. The salad, ordered with house Italian dressing was so dry and bland I couldn't eat it. The entrees didn't arrive until 40-45 mins after the salad which was ridiculous considering there were only three other tables occupied. There are no free refills on soda and we were shocked when the bill arrived totaling four drinks! Lousy food, lousy service! Go to Tiramisu! A little crowded but much much better food, service and prices!
