Re: “Saege Bistro

During my first visit the food was delicious & the service was average, but my second visit (and last visit ever) during brunch was awful:

- the server abruptly answered “no” when I asked if I could order off the lunch menu
- the table hadn't been well cleaned after the previous patron
- my water was never refilled & he never checked how my meal was. The omelette was BAD...it was a catch-all for leftovers (roast beef, broccoli, bocconcini).
- I know he hadn’t forgotten about me because he cleared my plates and brought my bill very quickly when I'd finished eating
- ignoring me freed up extra time for him to chat with his coworkers
- when he brought the payment machine to my table and I didn't leave a tip, he plunked down my receipt on the table and just walked away without saying a word

Halfway back to my car I decided to return and let someone know my concerns directly. I saw the server and calmly told him why I was unhappy with my experience. He said, "I profusely apologize." I was willing to leave it at that, but as I was walking out of the restaurant, he loudly said "WOW" in a drawn-out, mocking tone.

I e-mailed the business owner & chef the very next day, and he hasn’t responded after a month.

I eat out a lot, tip well even for average service, rarely complain and have never before written a restaurant review. But in this case, I feel the server’s rudeness and owner/chef’s indifference justifies it.

Spend your money elsewhere, folks!
