Horrible Experience - My friend and I visited this restaurant last night...first time for both of us. After being seated and waiting 10 minutes, I had to go back up to the hostess and ask her when someone would be coming to our table.

Horrible Experience - My friend and I visited this restaurant last night...first time for both of us. After being seated and waiting 10 minutes, I had to go back up to the hostess and ask her when someone would be coming to our table. (mind you, there was only one other table being occupied the whole time we were there). She was so shocked and went up to our soon to be waiter to inform him. He looked at us, then continued to do what he was doing on the computer and did not come over to us until after another 5 minutes (we almost left). He then did NOT apologize for the wait, he did NOT introduce himself and he had an attitude with us. The seafood tutto mare tasted like chicken noodle soup. It was so runny, bland and just plain disgusting. We continually ran out of drinks and had to wait so long on getting refills that we did not even request the last one, even though we were both thirsty. Since my meal was so bad, I wanted to get a dessert, but by the time he finally came back to us, we just got our bill and left. The worst service I have ever experienced. I have emailed them to let them know what happened. We'll see if they respond. Beth
Tips from foursquare
Loved Quintessential. Try the chocolate-infused vodka with Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur and a splash of water. It's good enough to drink every morning before work. (Gabe Hartwig)
LOVE the rooftop deck. Great place for evening dinner and cocktails.
Best place on Main St. for dancing. ^_^
Eat the jalapeño & cream cheese wontons!! So good! If Liz or Danielle are serving you hook em up, they are the BEST! :)
The transition from casual dining to lounge to night club is amazing here. The upstairs open air bar feels and looks great!
