I was at Cinema for the first time yesterday.
We entered cinema and asked if we could be on the patio. the hostess responded with "are you planning to eat?" We were, and it seemed as if we had said no then she would have said no to being on the patio. weird.
We note on the menu in it says "all our vegetables and cheeses are locally souced and organic". Organic feta, really?
So when our server comes back we point this out. "ALL" of your cheeses and vegetables, really?!
Us: wow. that's great. where does the feta come from?
Him: I dont know, i'd have to ask the chef
We ask about the specials. I had been to their website prior to visiting; what he says is different from their website. Aka: halibut & chips for 11$ We order. I hold on to the drink menu in case i want something more than water.
It takes forever for our food to come.
It smells of urine from the ground. sidewalk needs a power washing.
food comes. There is no feta on the salad. the fries look and taste like McCain fries. limp, soggy, luke-warm. I ask for a dressing. Server looks confused. Me: "like, ketchup or whatever you serve with fries..." we ask for a menu and point out to her, our hostess, that feta comes with the salad. "Oh" she says "maybe they're out"
Is this a reasonable response?
Feta is brought in a bowl. She takes away the drink menu so fast i dont have time to ask for it back.
The server comes out. So, I hear there was a mix-up with your order?
Us "yeah, we didn't get the feta"
Him "yeah, it doesn't come with feta..."
Us "yes, it does, we confirmed it with the hostess, we looked at the menu again. So, where is the feta from?"
Him "Oh, the chef just got back. She says it comes from the distributor"
Hostess comes by. I have to ask her for more water. she takes my glass, holding it by the rim and walks away. great, if there wasn't a straw i'd be licking her 5 fingers....
She does not fill my partner's 1/3 filled glass.
The salad was fine, but harldy worth 14$
the outdoor plastic chairs are very uncomfortable
the glasses that our water came in were old and worn.
the albertan beef in sandwich was tasty for the first few bites, but since there were no other flavours it got old, quick. Also not worth 14$
I fill out a form provided in the bill holder. So this shouldn't be a surprise when Donnelly gets the CC
