I am not writing to review this restaurant - the setting is lovely and the food and service are decent. I am writing because my husband and I took my sister here when she was visiting. We, like the rest of the patrons on a warm, busy Sunday evening, sat on the outside patio. My sister went inside to use the bathroom and while she was waiting to get in she was cornered and verbally accosted by two men her called her a c--t, a s--t, and told her to lift up her skirt, etc., etc. She was trapped between them and the locked bathroom door and managed to get through them and escape. It sickens me to think of what could have happened were the bathroom door unlocked. They were able to do this because at that time there was no one inside the restaurant - all of the staff were outside. When we told the management and staff, they knew exactly who we were talking about because these guys are regulars at this restaurant - apparently they live nearby - it was a large black guy and large white guy (vague description I know but the staff will know who we are referring to). I am writing this in hopes that not only will these guys be banned from the restaurant, but so the restaurant changes their policy and makes sure that there is a staff member inside the restaurant at all times. These guys aside, the bathroom is right beside a set of unmanned and unlocked doors leading to the outside and anyone could come in from outside and potentially attack someone alone in this part of the restaurant or in the restroom. As an extra precaution if you go to this restaurant, do not let a single female go to the bathroom alone.
