This is my second time providing a review on citysearch and it's only to prevent others from wasting money. Not to say St Bart's Cafe is the worst place I've been to but when a restaurant is situated in a prime location, one does expect nice service not a rude and pretentious hostess. When I asked if it was possible to get a table for two, the response was a cold - is your party completed, no? then i'll be happy to seat when your friend arrives. "sorry, we need to seat you when all parties are here" or actually any sign of kindness would have been nice especially when < 10% of the tables were full on a Monday night. Minutes later my friend arrives and we're seated in the back near the water table though, like I mentioned the place was not nearly full, and handed dinner menus. Not being very hungry, we asked a waiter for the small plates menu that is advertised in front of the cafe. Response - oh, that's for the other side of the cafe. WHAT! Could not the hostess mention this important fact? So now, we have to be re-seated on the other side which looks the same but is closer to the bar. We order sangria, about 15 mins later white sangria arrives though the sangria on the menu is red. Oddly enough, the dinner menu sangria is pinot grigio while small plates is red (WHAT! 2 different sangrias on 2 different menus, is it that difficult to note both drinks on both menus!) so instead of the waiter clarifying which sangria we wanted - he assumed the wrong one. 30 more mintues or so, our apps arrive ( I will say, the waiter was apologetic about the wait and our water person mentioned that another table was guided to the wrong section for dinner and the hostess was being spoken to.). But to top it all off, we were given 5 slices of baguette toast to eat with 3 healthy portions of spreads and when we asked for more bread, were not told it cost an extra 3$ - but it was on the bill! My friend planned to bring a client tomorrow - that is now out of the question.
Pros: outdoor space
Cons: terrible service, pretentious air, hidden extra costs
