I have dined at Anjou in the past and have had lovely dinners there, but when I dropped in on a Tuesday night without a reservation to see if we might be able to have dinner I was shocked at the reception we received. The Asian woman acting as Hostess at the front door literally snarled at us telling us she had just taken her last reservation and she wouldn't be taking anymore.
We asked if we could perhaps eat at the bar and she almost laughed at us, telling us we could try but she didn't think it would be comfortable! What?? I guess this is a perfect example of a restaurant that really doesn't want or need our business I thought so we headed for the door. We were coming from a meeting and were nicely dressed, but apparently this rude and unfriendly greeting had nothing to with our appearance, it just seemed "policy" for this woman.
As a Hospitality professional that often sends clients and guests to Union Square restaurants I will make it a point NOT to ever recommend this restaurant again. There are too many restaurants with friendly, professional staffs to choose from in San Francisco and no reason to tolerate this rude, inhospitable and unfriendly attitude!
