3 strikes & you're out. Will NEVER go to this place again. I have been turned away at this place, not once, not twice, but three times.
The first time I went was back in January of this year, for Sunday brunch, had a nice time, food was good, wasn't crowded, prices were reasonable. I though I'd found a new brunch spot. NOT!
Have attempted to go back to Tart three times since, & have been turned away EVERY time. The first time, they said there was a private party going on, the second time, they said it was closed (even though the front door was open, not locked, nothing), and the third time, yesterday, Sunday afternoon, 7/15/07, around 1, my friend & I were told by a blond guy server that they weren't "seating" anyone at this time, & then he kind of gestured to the place, like it was too crowded. Now, it was busy, but it wasn't packed & once again, the doors were open, I just don't understand how you can refuse someone service like that. You're across the street from the Grove on a Sunday afternoon, heck yeah, you're going to get some foot traffic...so I don't understand how it's possible that three times in a row I've gone there & been turned away on some bs. Maybe it's a case of incredibly bad timing plus coincidence, but I'll bet I'm not the only one this has happened to. This place needs to get their act together, big time. In any case, I'll never go back.
