They say for a restaurant to be successful they need to have only two of these three things; great food, great space and/or great service. In my opinion the Sandbar is successful because they have great food (actually okay food) and a great space. The service was not okay.
When we arrived there was some confusion of who our server was. We were seated by the hostess and almost ten minutes later we saw a server. This was after the hostess pointed us out to the server. Then there was a discussion of which server was really responsible for our table. We arranged for water while we perused the menu.
We asked if there were any specials when she realized we didn't have the fresh sheet which she quickly brought it to us and then went on and on and on and on and on explaining what was listed there. I can read. A few highlights would have been fine.
A new server then came to take our order. We placed it including some wine. Our food came and it was okay. Nothing special but nothing to really complain about. We had lettuce wraps and an appetizer chicken dish. Lettuce wraps were okay and the chicken was dry and could have used more sauce.
My friend mentioned this to the server when she returned who said "you shuld have told me and I could have got more sauce.". If we had seen her prior to finishing our meal we would have 1) ordered more wine, 2) arranged for more water, 3) and asked for more sauce. Instead when she returned her only interest was arranging for the bill. We didn't ask for the bill but it was apparent it was time to go. When she returned for payment i asked for water which had been empty for most of the meal. Instead of getting it right away she waited for the payment to go through on my credit card then I waited for the person next to me to pay for his bill and then I got my water.
The sandbar is not the most expensive place in town and it's not the cheapest. I expect better service than I received. It's easier for me to stay home than have service like that.
