I was at this place on a Monday night, it was relatively filled but definitely not packed. 5 of us were there to have a casual birthday dinner for our friend. The food was okay, nothing spectacular but it was freshly prepared and tasteful. The service was fast and considerate until after dinner. After we gave our waitress the money, we were all still seated enjoying our last bit of tea. Without walking away, she started to count our bill right in front of us at our table. We looked at her and said it is VERY RUDE to count our money right in front of us out loud, its not as if we were trying to leave without paying, we were all still seated. The gratuity was not included in the bill, but after counting she said ''You are short two dollars on tips.'' And with that said, we all got up and left without giving her the 2 dollar tip short because she obviously did NOT deserve it. It was a very bad ending to a mediocre dinner that could have been avoided at all cost.
