It wasn't just the waiters who floundered; the whole front-of-house team was clearly unable to cope with weekend throngs of night-time shoppers and moviegoers filing into the 200-seat restaurant. They seemed especially confused when it came to seating, as both of our visits began with us being steered toward the bar to wait for tables that were obviously available (reservations for less than six aren't taken, and there were numerous empty tables for four). I attribute this to confusion because it truly did appear, on both occasions, that our time spent at the bar was caused by a lack of staff communication concerning which tables were for whom and not owing to any preconceived plan to entice us into purchasing drinks. On the other hand, ice does yield a considerably high profit margin.
