    15 minutes after being seated we were told by the waiter that the chef had walked off the job and we would not be served. We were told to find another place to eat. So we left and went down the street to another restaurant. the menu offers breakfast, but we were told in the morning that no breakfast was available. would never try this restaurant again.

    Made a reservation and arrived early so we sat at the bar for a drink where we would have stayed if the music was not so close and loud. When we were ready to be seated we had to ask 2 hotel personnel where to check in, were pointed towards a hostess stand that was empty both times. We were finally able to flag down a waitress who told us that she wasn’t told of any reservations other than a large party. She took us over to the bar and had a conversation w the bartender. We were told we could sit outside or at the bar but would have to order at the bar either way. We sat outside and one person went to the bar to order after 15 minutes of looking at the menu. At the bar he was told that food could not be ordered from the bar to the outside area since there was someone else assigned to the outside area. In the 15 minutes we sat outside when reviewing the digital menu no one had come over, nor did anyone stop by in the next 15 minutes. We ended up leaving.

    Glad we went to Current for restaurant week. Food was excellent & nicely presented. Two large very tasty artichokes for appetizer, followed by very delicious scallops on a bed of polenta with roasted broccoli & cauliflower. We were stuffed but could not resist the warm chocolate cake with carmel ice cream for dessert. It’s a very casual spot but their food was as good as you can get anywhere.

    Terrible. This place isn’t even a real restaurant. More like a nightclub with zero customer service. Food, when it finally arrived, was fantastic.

    So we were the only table in there on a Tuesday night. Made reservations, it was my birthday. Service was almost non existent. I know everywhere is short but they had at least a manager and waiter, and we were barely asked if we wanted another drink. Food was redeeming.

    Rude, uninterested staff. Must be because of bad management. No one attended to us for 15+ minutes. We weren’t seated, even after asking the front desk for help.
