  1. Thanks for the honest review, Tandy! So sad for you all for the poor service! Does these people know what they are doing?

    • I am sure they know what they are doing and I think we just lucked out on the day we went – well, I hope so at least!

  2. Seems to me that it all *looked* better than it turned out to be in reality. Slightly dull flavors, wrong temperatures—those are uninviting enough. But lacklustre or rude service is the death knell, as far as I’m concerned. I’d rather eat poor food kindly served than gourmet sensations from the rude. The *menu* here, overall, seems like it could be promising if they fixed all of the glitches. A word to the wise from Tandy! I’d take your advice any day. Hope they do too. 🙂

  3. Isn’t it a shame when waitstaff really don’t care about their customers. Even if the food is excellent, bad service take all the pleasure out of an experience. BTW, I’m having a hard time getting on your blog, it is marked private even in the WordPress reader.

    • bad service is worse than bad food in my opinion. I am not sure why you are having problems reading my blog as I have not changed any settings. Will send you an email 🙂

  6. Oh how disappointing 🙁
    I saw all those cute picnic baskets and thought how gorgeous it all looked but to read about the terrible service was very disappointing. Even looking at the dessert you can see it needs another layer just to balance the appearance let alone the flavour.

  7. Oh it seems a bit hit and miss. And a shame when a gratuity is automatically added even when you get poor service 🙁

  8. What a pity it wasn’t all good Tandy but sounds like a great day all the same.
    I would want a kiddies basket for the treasure map.
