Where does one go for a glass of champagne on New Year's Eve? Apparently, not Pops. My wife and I dined at another downtown restaurant tonight and while out for an after dinner walk, we saw Pops and decided to stop in for a glass of champagne. We were greeted by two rude and condescending hostesses who refused to allow us entry and physically blocked the doorway. Admittedly, we did not have a reservation, but it was 8:30 PM, the place was half empty, and we informed the hostesses that we just wanted to stand at the bar to have one glass of champagne, and then we would leave. It didn't matter to them. They weren't serving our kind. I asked to use the washroom and was again denied entry. The hostess responded that the restroom was only for paying customers. I replied that I was trying to be a customer, that it was a matter of simple civility to allow a person the use of a restroom, and that I would even pay to use it. Again they refused us entry. As I said, they weren't serving our kind. I watched the same hostesses treat another couple in an equally rude and condescending fashion while denying them entry as well. Interestingly, the other couple looked a lot like my wife and me. I don't know how this place stays in business when it treats people like we were treated this evening.
Overpriced champagne, Rude staff, and old food.
I love champagne and was really looking forward to having a great meal and glass of bubbly with some girlfriends. Unfortunately my champagne was flat. No bubbles! That's the best part so I was a bit deflated and was charged for 2 glasses when I sent the 1st one back because of the lack of bubbles. They told me the charge was because they had to open a new bottle. I also got the lobser skewers which were flavorless and the size of quarters. The only plus was the environment and the music.
I did not enjoy my experience and will probably not go back.
