i went here last night with four girlfriends, and while we enjoyed the wine and the food and found our server pleasantly knowledgable, we were very much put off as the anxious, unfortunate looking maitre d awkwardly hovered above us at the communal table. we squeezed our fifth friend in, as the group next to us did the same with another friend arriving later, so the table was tight. no one seemed to mind except this maitre d, who lectured us and wanted us to move mid dinner. this went on for about 15 minutes. well we didn't move. also, she was apparently the owner? whatever, she sucks and it sucks such a lovely establishment has to be owned by someone who sucks.
