We decided to have dinner here on Friday evening (5 people) since they have a nice terrace by the Fox River and this is a hot summer. Me and my husband arrived at the restaurant 15 min before our friends and asked for a table of 5. The host refused to give us a table until everybody was there. We were told that this was because people sit too much at a table and do not consume enough until everybody in their party gets there. What??? Was I suppose to have a drink in the parking lot until our friends arrived and we could be seated at the table??? My first reaction was to call our friends and tell them we needed to find another place for dinner but my husband told me to give this place a chance regardless of the not so friendly welcome we had experienced. Once our friends arrived we were seated at a small table where you could barely fit 5 people. Fast forward, we ordered food and drinks and asked for the salad and the main meal to be brought at the table at the same time. The big shock came when our salads arrived at the table in take out containers. The main course came few minutes later in dinner plates. So basically we were expected to eat the salad holding the take out containers in our lap while the main course was on the table. The shrimp scampi came with pasta, shrimps and potatoes, yes POTATOES. And the potatoes were cut in big pieces with the potato skin not removed. Anybody whp had this dish before knows that this does not come with potatoes. My husband’s reaction was “it looks like they made this dish just to load up the plate with food and serve big portions”. I am sorry but we prefer quality over quantity. During din er we had a hard time catchjng he attention of our waitress to ask for more drinks. The place was not extremly busy but the waitress was barely seen around.
To be fair, the other dishes we ordered were good but considering the lack of service and the experience we had at this place it is very unlikley to return. Too bad they take advantage of the location and pay little attention to everything else.
