To be fair I will start with all the good points: \r
I went to Ms. B's (E 11th St) for Mother's Day with my family. Walking in, the hostess was very welcoming and we were seated immediatley. They had a jazz singer at the front of the restaurant who was perfect for the atmosphere; he sang a lot of old love songs - like Frank Sinatra stuff, which my mother and sisters love - and it was just background music to listen to as I enjoyed the time with my family. The food was outstanding; the flavors, and the colors were wonderful. They had a special Mom's Day menu and after finishing our meal (sharing bites with each other) I was definitley interested in returning for their normal menu. (Their coffee is really great too, that is always important to me.) Then as we left, all us mothers were given a rose to take home - such a sweet thought as something a little extra special!\r
Now the rest of the story:\r
After being seated at our table, we waited, and waited, and waited, and waited for any acknowledge for the waitstaff. It seemed like such a long time before they even brought us our drinks, and by the time we got our food we had waited ONE HOUR (I know because we had made a reservation and it was over an hour later). After finishing our meal we waited for the check. Again, this took forever! We eventually had to flag down another employee to get our waiter to even come to our table; it was past my nephews nap time and we couldn't stand waiting anymore. It is really tough to decide whether or not the great food is great enough for such horrible service!!!!!!!
Pros: food, live music
Cons: service, service, service
