Recently, I had the misfortune to dine at Gordo?s with my family who were visiting from out of town. When we arrived, the Owner was sitting in a chair near the front door?.asleep. When he awoke from his nap, he jumped up to greet us. He showed us to our table and when my mother commented to the server that she felt the house wine was overpriced. The Owner proceeded to come to our table and lecture us that his rent is $500/day and he pays $3.50 for that glass of HOUSE wine and then $0.90 tax. Clearly we must look like we just fell off the turnip truck. Then we witnessed him chastising the wait staff in front of customers. This man is a TYRANT and a BULLY to his staff and his clients. Admittedly, the food was good and our server did everything she could to make up for the Owners ignorance and lack of class. It was clear why the restaurant was nearly empty. He will never have to worry about me or anyone I know darkening his door ever again.
