 (Chicago)·Dined 18 hours ago

Booked a party of 5 for 9pm on a Wednesday which was pretty slow at the time. They wanted to seat us in the center but my gf wanted a window table. The host was very accommodating (and patient while my girlfriend had some requests) and allowed us to pull up a chair and sat us by the window. Thank you for that! We wanted a better view for our guests (which are in town from Mexico.) Our server Andrea was very knowledgeable on the menu and welcoming when we arrived and made some great drink recommendations for our party. However, there were a few downsides to our experience. After a round or 2, she stopped checking back as frequently as we needed. A few of us wanted at least 1 or 2 more drinks that she wasnt there to order. I've been in the industry for a 9 years so I notice small things, which i tend to ignore for the sake of having a good time, but when the bussers walk by and stare at the collection of at least 10 empty glasses I neatly placed at the edge of our table and pretend to not see them, it was getting frustrating. I mean I clearly watched the older gentleman stare directly at the empty glasses, then at the women at our table, and continue to walk past us. To top it off, I'm not sure if 20 percent gratuity is automatically added to parties of 5 or if our server assumed 5 mexicans wouldn't tip appropriately but our bill was over $250 without ordering food and frankly It's almost insulting. Given better service, I would have made sure to leave better than 20% but to add it without giving proper service is very unfair. Overall the place was great, drinks were great, music was great. Service... not so much.
