    Waiting for 15 mins when we walked in for a waiter just to take our food and drink order. No one came by. Other waiters and waitress walked by and just looked at us. No one approached us!

    Maybe it was just my trip but the server forgot our table for extended periods of time, he accidentally brought a glass of wine that we didn't order and assured us twice he would pay...not the case
