My boyfriend & I loved going to the old Anna Maria ? delicious food, great ambiance & even greater service. We decided to try the new location & have a Fri date night there. When we arrived at 8, they said that we had made our reservations for 7:45 (untrue) & we would have to wait. There was a bar so we said no problem. As soon as we ordered our drinks, they said our table was ready. The hostess took us past the main dining area to a small room, actually a small nook, which barely fit the party of 8 already there, who had most likely requested the area for themselves. They seated us about 1 ft away from the other table, in front of a full-length mirror. That way everyone in the dining room could watch us dine in profile. Luckily, those who couldn?t see us in the mirror could catch a glimpse on their way to the restrooms, which we were next to as well. And though every waiter in the restaurant had to walk by us to get to the kitchen directly behind my boyfriend, no one waited on us for at least 25 min. It was the complete trifecta. We decided to have a good time despite feeling like the extra losers crammed in at the kid?s table on Thanksgiving. Everytime someone from the party had to move, we had to get up. And we didn't want to be rude because they were probably even less pleased we were there. We ordered a bottle of wine & appetizers first & were hoping a table in the dining room would open up. After appetizers, 4 additional people joined the party & we all got to squeeze closer together. When we got our food, my boyfriend decided we weren?t going to be polite anymore & went to talk to the hostess. At this point, barely half the dining room was full & we were incensed they hadn't even tried to move us before we went to them. Food was bland & the waiter thought he was doing us a favor by letting us spend over $125 there. He was lucky that I am a chump & I can?t give less than 20%. Wish I had something nicer to say but I am never going back again.
Cons: Service, Seating, Food
