I travel all over the country for a national company and eat at many of the countries top establishments. An associate of mine recommended this restaurant as an upscale place for a business dinner. We had a party of four, three men and a woman, and my guests were clients that work for a national chain.\r
Three hours of enjoyable company, incredible food, great wine and excellent service, thanks to Heather and Jeffrey, all came to an unhappy ending when we were leaving the restaurant. While exiting our table and proceeding to the entrance of the restaurant, an employee of the restaurant at the host stand approached our female guest, who was the wife of one of the gentleman, my client, in our party. At that point, the restaurant employee handed her a folded piece of paper and told her, in a voice that was audible to all, ""You have a secret admirer"". He also intimated that he had done this in the past, pass notes to customers as a go between. We were in disbelief as we walked out and somewhat stunned as we left. After some discussion, the wife convinced her husband not to go back inside and confront the employee.\r
I returned to the restaurant the next day and spoke to the manager that was on duty. I explained to her exactly what had happened. She was speechless. I told her that I was not looking for any gain other than I thought the restaurant ownership owed the wife of my client and him an apology. She was very concerned about the incident and took my business card so that I could be contacted by the owner. Here it is seven days later and no call, nothing. Complete indifference. I guess the ownership of this establishment approves of their employees acting as pimps to pick up a few extra dollars.\r
All I can do now is spread the word to all of my business associates that travel to Atlanta, do not eat at this restaurant and why. I am also emailing this review to everyone in my address book and encouraging them to pass it to everyone they know.
Pros: Excellant service
Cons: Unprofessional, unethical employee
