    I don't think they were prepared for how the good weather would bring people out--to eat outside--so the severs inside were running off their feet. We weren't in a rush and still got wonderful service despite the crowd outside.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 4/14/2008
    To explain the low marks for service: We had reservations for 7 for a working lunch but six of us arrived first, the 7th was trailing, on the phone at the office. The server did not even come to our table to take a drink order until we flagged her down, she thought we wanted to wait for the 7th person before ordering. By that time, we were more than ready to order our food and had to insist that yes, we wanted to order food too. She also committed the common error of removing plates as diners finished, rather than waiting until everyone at the table had finished eating their main course. If this is how M&S trains their servers, they should reconsider that instruction. It's a table-service sin and you don't find it done at finer places.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/29/2008
    The food was excellant but I was a little disappointed with the service. I ordered a very basic mixed drink from the bar and after three tries did not receive the drink I ordered, Captain Morgan and diet Coke. The first try I told the waitress it didn't taste right, she apologized and got me a new one. It still didn't taste right but she never came back to ask if it was. I drank it anyway and ordered another one but specificaly said Captain and diet. She brought me the drink, it still wasn't right and I didn't finish it. I finally found out when I received my check that she had ordered be Bacardi rather than Captain. So I spent $14 on two drinks that tasted terrible.

    Overall an enjoyable meal I took my wife and visiting sister from FL to after work. However, I belong to their "Preferred Guest" club; for the 2nd time in the last 3 meals at this same location (even though I gave my PG membership card when paying), the staff not only was not able to credit my account with the correct new dining points, they wiped out all other built up points for a net balance of "0" (vs a net balance of 1090 which it should have been: 919 prior + 171 new). The error has now been corrected, but I had to find the manager, who could not correct that night, but took down my information to have it corrected the next day in their system. This wasted perhaps 10 minutes (again). They should teach their staff better.

    We were greeted immediately upon entering the restaurant and taken upstairs. We were seated at a table in the center of the floor although there were open booths and window seating, which I would have preferred. Our server was prompt and attentive with taking our orders and the food was delicious and plentiful. That was the first time we have been seated upstairs and we both agreed that we liked the downstairs tables better. We will come back again.

    I was sitting at the booth closest to the door. It was breezy so I was cold. Service was good. I never find that the entree is filling enough...need to either get the appetizer and/or dessert to not feel hungry later. I like the booths.
