Okay, twice now I’ve gone to Nola and gotten HORRIBLE service. Today we went in and saw the sign that said “Wait to be seated.” It didn’t specify how long, but after a couple of minutes we went up to the bar register and asked for menus. We sat down, figured out what we wanted. And sat. And watched a waitres attend to one of the other TWO tables that were occupied. Then she sidled away, with her back to me, not making eye contact. Steve went back to the bar and placed our order and paid. Mistake. Because if he hadn’t paid upfront we’d have left when our sandwiches did not arrive for 15 min. It was a grilled cheese and a baked tofu and there were more staff than patrons. Put the bong down, Maynard, and bring me my food.
