It became quickly, VERY OBVIOUS why this place was dead on the most beautiful night of spring. We chose the brownstone to meet our friends for some appetizers and dinner while we watched the hawks playoff game tonight. When we arrived at 7pm, the person who sat us seemed like he had taken qualudes, and stumbled us to our seats. We mentioned to him that we were there to watch the game and he was nice enough to find us a table that would be close to where the game would be on, however when our 32 week pregnant friend showed up about 15 minutes later he hassled her about how long she was planning to stay and if she would be eating dinner. Strange.
Our waitress was great.. VERY ACCOMODATING AND ATTENTIVE.
The volume of the TVS was incredible loud even for those of us who were there to watch the game. At 9pm we were approached by a very rude employee who demanded that we leave if we were not staying for some televised fight. We told him that we were just finishing dinner and that we would be leaving shortly. He rudely suggested that shortly should be right now even though two of us at the table were still eating. After a few minutes he came back and demanded that our time was up and that if we were not there for the event that we should leave, despite the fact that we had spent close to $200 on our tab. we understood why we needed to wrap up our dinner, but the way it was handled was course and rude and unnecessary. We will never return to this establishment and will tell everyone to avoid this place as well. DEFINITELY A THUMBS DOWN. Rude staff, mediocre food, unnecessarily LOUD volume.
