What should have been a sterling food experience, turned sour due to service problems. I had worked hard to talk my wife into trying this potential gem, and she consented because of Father's Day. I should have known something was askance when I had to wait five minutes to be acknowledged after seating ourselves, which breaks my usual rule of not waiting after the first 90 seconds. This oversight and poor start to the dining experience was ominous, given that there were only 4 other tables (2 inside, 2 outside) being serviced by three obviously frazzled staff members. We had waited until after 1 pm in order to avoid the 12-1 brunch crush that usually pervades our neighborhood establishments. Brunch must have been a bear, because you could hear the hostility among the staff (one of whom I think is the owner) hissing at each other in the back and they all had that "I wish I were anywhere but here" look in their voices and body language.
This is sad, because the food was tasty and quickly served, once our waiter finally came to take our drink and lunch order. The uncomfortable vibe made us hunch our shoulders, quickly shovel down the food and make a hasty exit.
I will probably give this place another chance, since the menu has some interesting options (not inexpensive by the way) but I am not sure I can get my wife to accompany me next time. She is not quite as forgiving as I am.
