Ordered Chicken entree and the evening's special with a $38 bottle of good wine (Marietta red blend), about ten minutes after arrival. Forty-five minutes later, our entrees still weren't served--hadn't seen our waiter, two-days-a-week "Will" to explain the infathomable delay. No bread served to us,...More
