Rude Service, Average Food
By Dkeisman on 9/7/2004
My experience mirrors that of the other reviewers, a rude manager/hostess, indifferent service and food that was not worth having to endure the service. All of the public relations and celebrity investors aren't going to help if the chef-owner doesn't create an environment that will make people want to return.
Don't bother eating here

On a recent mid-week visit, a few friends and I experienced the worst meal in years. The service is unpleasant, the wait was almost 2 hours, and the food was horrible. Appetizers are okay (nothing to write home about) but the entrees are terrible. The steak was very salty and full of fat. The Spotted Pig is definitely not worth the wait!
Stay Far Away!

The menu is completely different than the one advertised on their website and the portions are ridiculously small. No distinction between appetizers and entrees except cost. Service was horrible. Half our party had to sit on tiny stools, the other half next to a cold & drafty window. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this overrated and overhyped place.

Came early for lunch and the place was moderately empty. Nevertheless we were told to wait until our table was "ready". I asked if we couldn't just sit at one of the many open tables and the hostess responded with "I think I've already answered that." Nice. We went somewhere else.
No onion allowed for my client's burger

I took 2 very important clients to lunch and was appalled at the service, food and attitude. These clients practically own Manhattan, they are extremely influential. The attitude of the staff was appalling and they wouldn't give a slice of onion for my clients burger as they only "take away not add on to their dishes." Quoted by our sour waiter. Yeah in these times we all need help from our friends and if you cant have a simple burger without attitude than loser is the name.

The food in this place is absolutely disgusting. Guide Michelin must be smoking crack to give this place a star.
Slow from the beginning

I was the first of a party of 4 to arrive. The hostess stood outside the restaurant and did not greet me (I had to ask the bar tender who does the seating). She said she couldn't seat me until my party was here so I had a drink at the bar. After 10 minutes she seated another person that just walked in on the last empty table for four BEFORE her party was there - and told me and my friends that had arrived that it would take another 30-40 minutes to seat us. The other person was still alone at her table. When I pointed that out to the hostess, she did not appologize, she just said, well, yes, you were here before her! It can't be more unprofessional. Neither of us will go back to try the food.
You got punked!!!

We had a terrible experience. After all the hype I was very excited to have dinner at the Spotted Pig. What a huge disappointment!! Very limited menue (a bar menue at best), tiny portions, uncomfortable seating, a host who is "too cool for school". I can't understand the hype at all. During dinner I waited for Ashton Kutcher to show up and tell our group: YOU GOT PUNKED! That's how bad it was.
Rude personnel and food that made me sick
By pikulein on 5/24/2008
The food was over-salted and not fresh. It made my girlfriend sick. What a waste of time and money. This restaurant is a good place to be from!!

I was not impressed with the food. Staff is rude.
- 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.
