“Average + disgusting situation”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Lucy has been @ Jose Ignacio for many years and is a well known average restaurant for the area. Last December we went for lunch and were greeted by what seemed a new host/employee. She was super charming and as no waiter was nearby she brought us the menus to our table. The owner Lucy appeared and out of the blue got angry that the new host brought us the menus. She started yealling to this lady in front of us. We felt so bad that we stopped Lucy and told her that we asked the host for the menus. The amazing thing was that Lucy told us not to interfere in "her" conversation with "her" employee. The situation kept escalating to such ridiculous stupidity that we cut it and asked to be served. We ended having a stressful lunch that we didn't enjoy AT ALL. The worst of all was that the host was fired while we were paying. WE WILL NEVER BE BACK to this crazy Lucy's place that tends to enjoy torturing employees in front of clients.
