We were staying at the Harry Packer Mansion, and looking for a place in town to eat. This was one of the few places to offer a filet, so my wife and I decided to make reservations on a Sunday night. When we arrived, it was quite quiet, and talking with Annette (our waitress) she explained Sundays usually were quiet this early in the season. When we sat down, it was just my wife and myself in the restaurant.
Instead of it being awkward, it was a great evening. We spent the night talking with Catherine and Annette as we ate, and they helped make my birthday so much more fun. The food was excellent, the wine very good, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was warm and inviting. What could have have been a very quiet evening of just my wife and I sitting in a nice, quiet restaurant, was so much better because of our interactions with Annette and Catherine.
The steak I wanted for dinner came out with a birthday candle in it, in case I didn't make it to dessert, they said. (I did make it to dessert, and I got another candle as well!) Initially we were concerned that they had to stay because of us, but they made us feel completely welcome the entire time. In fact, instead of closing and kicking us out at 9, they sat with us and let us drink wine until the owner came to close the restaurant at 10 (who also invited us to stay longer for drinks!)
We hadn't even left, and my wife was making plans to return for our anniversary dinner! This was one of the most enjoyable times we've had at a restaurant.
