My ladyfriend and I ate dinner here (the Broadmead Romeo’s) on Sunday Aug 28th. The food (their roast lamb special) and the service were both good, and their live patio bunny (Romeo) very cute. The problem came when we drank only half of our bottle of wine and wanted to take the rest of it with us (since we were driving, as are most of their customers). Our server told us that we could not do that. We knew that the BC law was changed quite a while ago to allow customers to take away their unfinished bottles, but she said no, they do not allow that, and after checking with her manager, the answer was still no. The manager offered to charge us for only half a litre (about $19) rather than the whole 750 ml bottle (about $29). Rather than create a scene by picking up the bottle and walking out, we accepted her offer (being charged for ½ litre rather than the ½ bottle we drank) and left very unhappy about the whole thing, and will never go back.
