    We were a party of six. The food was exceptional. The cocktails were some of the best had. The kitchen and the bartenders did not disappoint - the food and drinks came quick. However, The waitron, Pauline, did not match the high standards of the food and drinks. She was not friendly or had any will to be there. In fact she made us all feel uncomfortable and as if we were doing her a disservice for being there. She consistently interrupted our conversations with a pointed finger and shouting “plate!” at a person to pass empty plates over the table to her, instead of taking two extra steps to easily pick the plate up herself. I do not expect her to be my servant, but I work in the service industry and there is the basics “do and donts” of being a waitron. She did not top up our water glasses, explained the menu items or made any of us feel welcome or excited for what was to come. We ordered many meals to share and instead of assisting in finding space on the table, she would just hand the plate of food to you, so that you had to do it yourself. We have eaten here before and the service received really disappointed this time around. I noticed other waitrons smiling and enjoying what they were doing, which was nice. When it came to settling the bill, it was not explained or noted to me that the service charge of 15% was already included and deducted from the deposit paid. I then paid her another 15% on top, meaning she received a 30% tip for her bad attitude and lack of service. If we received the service expected, I would not have mind, but really… Subsequently we realised that this is why the service received was poor, as she had no motivation, as she knew her tip was already settled and will be included in the bill from the moment we walked in. I would’ve brought this to the attention of the manager, but he/she was not once seen during our two hour dinner. I would also recommend that the waitron start including the following words in her vocabulary: Please, Thank You and its A Pleasure.
