What's up with that? Bad restaurant service
I've been going to a Coconut Grove restaurant for years, I think I'm up to their fourth or fifth owner by now, they keep changing, but I keep going back. Recently they changed out waiters, the one waiter who knew me and I knew him so well is now gone. The new guy doesn't know the area or me or the rest of the customers. Which may not be a bad thing except for the fact that I went in for lunch the other day and he told me they could not make my lunch for me because they're not taking special orders.
I was dumbfounded as I had been eating this for years, sometimes three times a week at this place and now the new waiter told me flat out no. I've never been told "no" before at a restaurant, in fact I always found it odd that you could ask for whatever you wanted and they would make it if they had the ingredients on the premises. They did here, as what I wanted was on the menu for lunch that day -- salmon. Only they were making it this greasy French way and I wanted it blackened and healthier. I was told no. No special orders.
The place literally had only two tables, total four people in the place, at lunchtime. Not a good sign. I can see why. The owner was right there, I don't know if he heard or not, but either way, after 10 years, I won't be going back.
I ended up getting salmon, my way, at another restaurant in the Grove.
