The food was wonderful, our waitress was excellent, the view of the Newport Harbar at sunset was beautiful, but management killed our evening.
Dining at Fluke Wine, Bar & Kitchen, a local Newport restaurant, proved to be too good to be true. We had heard good things about the restaurant. Despite being there for drinks a few times, we had never actually had a meal there.
At the end of our meal, the manager came over to tell us we were taking too long and had to leave. We didn’t think he even talked to the waitress, as we didn’t even have the check yet! Why would you make a table feel bad, when they haven’t even been given the opportunity to leave when ‘hinted’ by a check being delivered.
I apologize to everyone who reads this blog for the tech / web development content. The following is something I felt the need to post regarding a bad restaurant experience I had (I have some obligatory tie in’s to web development, but this is mostly a restaurant review).
This past weekend, the wife and I were looking forward to having dinner at a new restaurant for us, Safari Restaurant & Lounge at OceanCliff in Newport, RI. We don’t go to “nice” places much, but we are no strangers to “fancy” restaurants. Needless to say, it let us down.
