Our reservation was for 8 PM but we arrived a few minutes late and were seated at about 8:20. We were able to order drinks right away - Steve and I shared a pitcher of the St. Germaine cocktail - but then we waited at least 20 more minutes before our waiter finally came back and took our dinner order. One of our friends tried to order the lobster risotto, but they were out of lobster. Thankfully the waiter was ready with the option for her to have the risotto with shrimp at a slightly lower price, and she accepted.

About the time we finished with the tapas, the waiter brought out Steve's paella. About ten minutes later he brought out our friend's pizza. The risotto never came. Eventually we approached the manager about this; he promised to rush it out but at this point our friend didn't even want it (understandably). The manager, George, was extremely apologetic and honestly handled everything very well; I absolutely have to give him props for that. Obviously we didn't have to pay for the entree that never arrived, but in the end I was charged for extra pita bread that I never received (and only didn't complain because everything had been such a mess and it was just $1) and we weren't really given anything but an apology for the slow service, the fact that they were out of two of the things we ordered, and just the general messiness of the entire experience.
