BEWARE of hostile hostess!
We went to Cheddar's for 4th of July dinner with 11 of our friends. As we were told with a large party, we would be split up to 2 tables (restaurant policy only allows 8 per table) which was fine with us.
As the hostess took us to our first table, the customers seated next to us were kind enough to offer to move to a different table such that both our tables will be next to each other. The waiter volunteered to combine the tables, which was great because we thought they were being considerate to accommodate us.
After we were seated, the hostess snarled at us saying "I told you our policy only allowed 8 per table". It was obviously shocking to us because it wasn't something that we requested. The manager had to come by to diffuse the situation.
As we were leaving the restaurant, she told us "I know what I'm doing" even after all the conversations earlier. This is unacceptable!
Despite all the conversations, she just refused to admit her mistake of blaming us for abusing the restaurant policy. How could the restaurant tolerate this attitude of the hostess when they are the first to "welcome" you to the restaurant!
Needless to say our appetites were ruined after the incident and things did not improve at the end. This certainly would be the last time we'd be visiting this restaurant! Hope your experience is more pleasant than ours.
