    Waited outside for 40 mins while others were seated immediately because they "just called in." (Tip: call in, I guess, or say you did.) Service extremely slow once seated and food mediocre at best.

    Pray they don't forget they sat you and then ignore you. Also if they're gonna talk about you, they might wanna use quieter voices.
