This morning, we went to The National for Brunch. The experience was horrible. We live 2 blocks away but had never been there. Although we had reservations, it took us over 45 minutes to get a cup of coffee. From the time we sat down, the waitress didn't come to our table for over 15 minutes. Then, when we asked for coffee before we ordered, we waited anther 30 minutes just to place our order. The food was mediocre and just warm. Toast was dry and unbuttered - with none on the table. It was clear that there was no organization in the dining room at all. Geoffrey Zacharian needs to spend less time on TV and more time attending to his restaurant. We won't be going back.
