A note, I have dined here 3 times in the past year and have had pleasant experiences, particularly with the food. This evening did not live up to previous experiences. The hostess, without a smile or pleasant greeting, was not aware of our reservation for later (we arrived early) and looked at us like we were confused (myself and two colleagues). She said she could seat us anyway and we were seated next to the door on a cold and rainy evening. There were other tables available so we are not sure why we had to have the coldest table in the restaurant. It was a dark table with a single color changing light above, not romantic, not practical. We were given wine, dinner and specials menus; specials, that did not appear to include any available on this evening, a Monday night. We waited for a server to take the drink order and by the time he arrived we were on the verge of leaving. We agreed to an opportunity of redemption but the server only confirmed one person's request for water and then walked away before anyone else's order was taken. We promptly left. I had talked up the food to my colleagues and this was quite a let down. I hope the take out process is better later this week. I'm looking forward to the create your own pasta dish.
