just really poor service

I live nearby and have been several times. Service always subpar. The last time I was there I was so annoyed with the service that I'll go elsewhere in the future. First, as always, we had to beg and plead to get menus from the bartender. Finally, menus in hand, we try to find an open spot to stand. While trying AGAIN to get the bartenders attention (to order drinks), I bumped into some girls sitting at the bar. They offered us their seats, since they were about to leave. We said great and waited patiently for them to pay their tab and get up. Said thanks & sat down. NOW the bartender will pay attention to us (still hasn't asked us what we want to order). He literally yells at us and tells us this other guy was sitting there (apparently on the girl's lap?) and that the other chair was reserved for another guy-who turns to us and goes, "huh? no, it's fine. I wasn't sitting there." bartender insists we get up. now we are embarrassed, offended & still freaking thirsty. We walked out. Not going back.

I've lived by Bar Veloce for a while now, but only recently paid a visit to it. What a great place! Really nice, laid back vibe, with a very nice, courteous, knowledgeable bartender. Great paninis and great wine descriptions that allow even the most inexperienced wine drinker to make a fitting selection! I'll be back soon.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
