Beware of Unruly Children
Provided by Citysearch
On February 13 I was going to celebrate my birthday along with Valentine's Day at the Hall Street Grill, with my husband. We asked to be seated in the bar because we did not have reservations. I asked the hostess to NOT seat us at a high table because I have MS. That is exactly where they seated us! We had to endure two girls, under 10 years old, plus their parents who where texting and viewing the internet through the whole dinner. The girls were flipping upside down, complaining, putting their feet on the table, kicking me across the seat and putting their hands on our table. One little girl fell out of the high seat, cracked her head on our table and landed upside down on the floor. Crying ensued! The mother kept calling her daughter ""stupid"" while she peered into her Blackberry screen oblivious to what her children were doing! Lisa, the Manager said she was sorry but she had to seat the children in the bar as per the parents request. Good judgment on the management part would have been to place them at a standard height table AWAY from other quiet adult customers! My husband's clam chowder had no clams in it and the waitress said she would take it off the bill. That didn't happen! The whole experience ruined my birthday and Valentine's dinner!
