This is my third time at T-Bar in the past few weeks, although I've dined there so many times. I love the restaurant's ambiance and their delicious food. The wines are great as well as the desserts.
But the service has been poor every time. Many friends have had the same experience, sadly. If it weren't for the glorious food, I probably wouldn't return.

We got there at 5 and it was lovely. The service was good as well as our food. They have THE best guacamole!

However, by 5:45, the noise level: deafening:(

First time I will write a bad review
1.
I made res and req certain area
Got there and they said yes and then seated us in the middle of main room where noise was intolerable - I have ALWAYS written that they honor reservations - and the attitude this time - was “ oh yes - but nothing is available” - NOT EVEN LET ME SEE HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE
2.
I ordered turkey burger -menu said with spinach and goat cheese.
Never said stuffed with spinach and goat cheese.
When I complained to waiter - he showed me menu and told me it said it- I pointed out it did not say stuffed - he said okay and walked away. I did not eat it as I hate goat cheese. No apologies - no attempt to take off check or order me one without stuffing.
3.
Asked for more olive bread when we first sat down. Never came
4.
Others in our party ordered brisket - told wAiter potToes cold - again he did nothing to resolve this


First time of many many times - GREATLY DISAPPOINTED

Asked to sit downstairs. Sat us at a table closest to bathroom on balcony. Not a cozy table as we are used to. We have been coming to TBar for years. We should be on some type of VIP list as in other restaurants we frequent. And, we brought guests who we thought would love it as we do, they live be in the neighborhood. FYI.
