We were 40 minutes late to Ponti's. I felt bad since our friends were waiting there the entire time. Apparently, they had gotten on the waiter's bad side by returning drinks they didn't like the taste of. Whatever, the customer's always right. I was in a good mood, so I was working the waiter's good side so he wouldn't spit in our vinagrette. However, bad bartending struck again.
Jason ordered a Cape Cod and it was the most watered down shit he'd ever had. He walked over to the bartender for a pow wow. This time, he ordered a double and it *still* tasted like water. WTF? Yeah, this and the whole being out of Pinot Grigio puts Ponti's on my shit list.
The food wasn't too bad. I had the Cajun Prawns in a nice sauce. Too bad the bread was fricken $2 (happy hour price too, hello!) else it would've been a nice light meal. Jason had the salmon quesadillas which were decent. Not amazingly awesome, but the flavors were what I expected them to be. Then he and I split a bacon cheeseburger and fries (they had no ranch dressing, wtf?! Plus they had the audacity to use a condescending tone when we asked for it). Frankly, McDevil' s has a better baco-cheeseburger but their fries were good.
Overall, Ponti's can suck my balls. The servers were total dicks and didn't hide their contempt for us that well. I was a total sweetheart to them and they looked down their snooty noses at me. To top it off, the drinks sukd and the food was overrated.
