Horrible...don't waste your time!

I almost always use nymag before trying a place out, but this is my first time ever writing a review. I feel so strongly about this place that I had to register. I went there on a Friday evening for drinks. First of all, the outdoor area isn't even nice because it's fully surrounded by taller buildings. I ordered a drink off their cocktail menu and was seriously disappointed. The waitress kept running past us as we were trying to get her attention, something I could forgive if there weren't just 20 something people for 4+ waitresses. Finally, we told another waitress to call our server over and, thinking I couldn't go wrong with their signature drink, I ordered the Bookmark. It was so poorly made that I didn't drink more than a few sips. After waiting 20 minutes I had to go up to the bar to ask our waitress, who was just hanging out, for the check. Horrible drinks and unforgivable service. Cant imagine who would make this mistake twice.

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.
