We had eaten here before and the food was “ok”. We tried to eat here again and parked in the parking lot. There’s a gastro pub across the street. Our intention was to look at the menu next door, because neither of us had seen it and we were merely curious what they had to offer. Our intention not eat at the gatro pub, hence where we parked. We had pizza on our mind.
As we were leaving the parking lot, an angry old man came up to us and asked us if we had read the sign, saying only customers of Plato’s can park there. I responded yes, that we were going to eat at Plato’s and would be back in a couple of minutes. He then told us not to bother coming back and to move our car. I promised him if we didn’t come back in 5 minutes he could have us towed, to provide him assurance that we were in fact planning to eat there. I thought that if he thought we were lying to him that that would calm him down a bit, because he was extremely hostile. He more or less then told us off, then proceeded to follow us into the restaurant across the street. When I asked for the menu, he left and told us he was going to piss on our car.
I looked at the menu, as planned, for future reference, then proceeded to go back to Plato’s. When we went inside he started yelling at us to leave and refused to serve us. The waitress then also asked us to leave and to talk to her outside. Once outside we tried to explain the whole thing to the waitress, but she’d have none of it either, telling us to leave and not to come back.
This is NOT a place you want to go, with a significant other, family or friends. The hostility and rudeness of the staff is concerning, especially considering that the food here is mediocre. I’m not sure if it’s dementia or just an anger management problem, but we certainly will never consider going here again.
