We have been going to the Alma Inn for many years and have experienced a consistent decline in the quality of service . In spite of very much wanting to make it our preferred place to eat (and we go out A LOT), they are doing everything to discourage us from it.
Last night we had to wait about 40 mn before being served.The restaurant was not full, as you can expect on a sunday evening. We were therefore expecting to be served fairly quickly. As for the food, I had been told that the soup of the day was potato and leek and had ordered it, only to see the waitress arrive with a tomato soup, telling me that they had no more soup of the day left. I refused the soup and the waitress came back asking me if I would like pumpkin soup instead (which was not on the menu), I agreed to this. 2 mn later, she came back with a bowl of whitish very creamy liquid. Disgusting and absolutely no taste of pumpkin. It was like cream diluted with some water. 1h30 mn after we had ordered our food, I still had not had anything to eat.... Luckily they did not charge me for the soup that I had not eaten.
