The food here continues to be excellent. BUT - The wait staff need training on customer service. Staff act as if they are doing customers a favor by waiting on them. Rude.

First time eating at the Bistro. We hadn’t realized that they stopped serving eggs in the bakery side but noticed the sign to go back to the Bistro. My eggs Benedict had a great taste, although the eggs were slightly underdone. They are made with...More
