After driving an hour to get to the restaurant, I was extremely disappointed. The building and the atmosphere are fabulous. Unfortunately, the service was terrible. What a shame for such a classic place. We had reservations for four and were seated at a table set for six. At no time did the waitress or busgirl attempt to remove the extra place settings. Our waitress had very little when it came to personality, thank heaven that the restaurant itself has warmth and character. Obviously, staffing was a problem this evening, for we barely saw our waitress. She had forgotten items that were ordered and we were never offered a dessert menu or coffee after dinner. What a shame because the place itself is absolutely charming. The food was good and maybe would have even been considered delicious with the proper service. I guess, not being asked if we would like another drink, more bread, etc. did not help. I am sure our waitress was having a bad evening, but not what I expect when I am paying for the "excellent" service in the prices on the menu. I personally would not drive another hour to eat there. If I was in the area, I would give it another chance, because of the ambience. One more thing, if you could take the skin off the fish before serving the Talapia, that would also be a great help, it was a bit fishing tasting. I truly think I am being kind with rating this as a 3 star overall dining experience. My compliments to the architect and designer!
