Born and raised in the bay, of course when I visit I would love to re-visit a ""Fine Cuisine"" old school, American, Italian restaurant. \r
Last night my party of 4 called ahead, only to be told they don't take reservations for 4. We arrive at 8pm and were told it would be a half hour wait. Had drinks at the bar, service was good, price was right. #84 Yeah, that's us, we are seated, we waited, probably for about 15 minutes (not kidding). Mean time we were offered bread & butter. Finally waiter arrived apologized in his delay and took our drink order. We joked with him- ""you can keep us happy if the drinks are topped off or comped"" He laughed and shoved more bread on our table. Placed our order, my husband ordered minestrone soup, spaghetti & meat balls with ravioli my friend ordered the same, her boyfriend offered the fillet mignon with pasta- instead of red he wanted Alfredo sauce (waiter even advised it would cost extra). I asked what the waiter recommended ""calamari steak, but I wash my hands if you no like"" OK guess what after 6 loafs of bread, my husband and friend receiving the wrong soup, my friends boyfriend getting pasta with red sauce accompanied by side pasta with Alfredo sauce, I had this deep fried soggy, cold chewy calamari steak with chopped up over cooked ravioli at 10 o'clock AT NIGHT-I NO LIKE! The restaurant was more than half empty, the nice couple across from us had been waiting 25minutes just for their check. When my husband had to hunt the manager down, I explained the above and her reply was ""yeah, we were busy, I won't charge you let me just take this all away"". When she came back to take the rest away she decided to throw her two cents in by saying ""the waiter didn't know you wanted white sauce"". REALLY? Sorry Joe's never again.
