I've been dining at this restaurant for YEARS, but I've had two bad experiences lately. The food is still great, but two of their longtime employees didn't display the hospitable demeanor that I'm used to getting here. I have been dining here since 2018, so I don't know what happened recently. On the night of Tuesday, June 7, I went in with my little cousins (4 kids). The server was unaccommodating and avoided our table the entire time. Possibly because we are the people in the stereotype of "who doesn't tip"... While I understand that the rumor that people with our skin color "do not tip" has a reason behind it, I still do not think a server should treat any guests under such impression. We ordered a 12oz filet Medium and snapper with a few side dishes. Everything was delicious. The kids wanted more steak, so we asked for another 12oz filet Medium, but the second steak was cold red (rare), so I told the kids I'll have the server take it to be cooked more. The kids said they wanted another snapper and some desserts at that time. When I sent the steak to be cooked up, I wanted to order those items, but we waited for several minutes before the server returned. By then, I was upset with how long we had waited for his attention the entire night, so I told him to box the steak and bring the check. I didn't get the steak cooked up, didn't get the second snapper, or a dessert because I was so turned off by his lack of regard for our table. I paid the bill and still left a tip of 25%. After paying the bill, I told the manager, Jennifer, about the experience. I did so AFTER paying the bill to prove that I am NOT into free items; I will pay for everything I order. She apologized and asked if we could please stay for desserts, but I didn't like the idea of getting anything for giving a complaint, so I declined her gesture. I own multiple small businesses; I don't believe in free products unless totally reasonable. She disagreed with my stance that our skin color was the reason for him avoiding my table; her suggestion was perhaps it's the "end of the night" thing, but we sat down just before 9 PM, and the restaurant closes at 10 PM. If we had come in just before 10, I would understand, but we came in a full hour before closing time, so why should we receive the "I just want to go home" treatment from a server? As I said, I paid the bill and still left a 25% tip; I'm not what the stereotype says about melanin people. I know this is long to read, but I am appalled that I've dined here for years, and only my two recent visits were bad experiences.
