After a long day of wine tasting w/ my husband, we decided to try this place out, we were told by the hotel staff that the food was really good, and Sideways was filmed there blah blah blah. So, we walked over to try it out on a Monday night (7/25/11 to be exact). It was pretty busy but luckily we had made a reservation, we were called about 10 minutes after getting there. The hostess was very nice while seating us, our server was a different story. While ordering, we had questions and our server had a look of annoyance on her face and answered us as if we were morons when she answered. Her whole attitude was of impatience and rudeness, (she was a middle aged woman w/ blonde hair, we were seated in the back, on the left of the restaurant). Moving on...we ordered the grilled artichoke, filet mignon and lobster tail. Not an inexpensive dinner, but we were still treated w/ attitude, for some reason we still can't figure out. Now the food- The Artichoke- very good, The Filet-sooooo good, one of the better filet's we've had, (Although Jocko's is better), and now the lobster-really BAD! It looked like lobster, had the texture of lobster, smelled a little like lobster but tasted like NOTHING but the butter you dipped it in. Very disappointing. Then, when our server drops off the bill we waited quite a while before deciding to go to the front and pay. This is when she appears and suddenly has time for us. She follows us up front and turns on the charm, hovering over my husband while he fills out the tip on the credit card and chatting away w/ me about kids... Then proceeds to look at the credit card slip in front of us and says ""Oh, okay"" Very tacky! I was a server/bartender for about 12 years and never looked at a credit card receipt in front of a customer to see what they tipped, much less made a comment about it! We are normally very good tippers, but honestly, I don't think she deserved anything, and my husband still tipped her $12! I guess she thought since she was nice at the end, she should get 20%? She barely acknowledged us while we were seated! I suggest you go elsewhere. I think because this restaurant was in Sideways they think highly of themselves and don't think they don't have to have good service. We LOVED Firestone Brewery and Mother Hubbards, good food AND service when we went there. Wish we would have went next door and tried AJ Spurs instead.
