Lousy Service, Poorly Run, Mediocre Food.
I heard a lot about Bados and live nearby so I checked it out. I was with my 10-year old daughter, and went for lunch on a quiet Saturday. We were seated in the bar area, which was odd because you don't normally sit kids near people drinking (and swearing) at the bar. We then sat for 15 minutes without any attention whatsoever. The hostess was sitting 2 tables away doing side work, but decided to ignore us. She walked past us seating other customers and saw that we had no drinks or food, but did nothing. A woman with dark hair, who I assumed was a manager, was also walking around and socializing, but decided to ignore us as well.
I finally told the hostess that we still had no waitress, and could she please seat us in the restaurant half of the place where we might get some service. You would think that she might have responded with an apology and made sure we got some service, fast! Nope, just moved us to a new table and went back to ignoring the problem. We sat for another 10 minutes before anyone came by, and yes, other waitresses were walking past us and yes, other parties that came in well after us were eating.
When we finally got a waitress, she was very sullen and not friendly at all. She was not impressed that we had waited so long and offered no apologies, no smile...nothing. We waited for our food, we waited for our check, we waited for our receipt. Forget drink refills, not going to happen at this place.
Normally, I would never put up with such poor service but I was curious about the food quality. After all that, it was only OK. Certainly nothing to get excited about and certainly not worth the aggravation to get it. I understand a person having a bad day, but this place is obviously not run well. I will not be going back.
avoid always!. terrible service...didn't even get seated --- hostess said it would be 30 min wait...no problem. she took our name and we sat at the bar, right in front of the "wait to be seated" sign. Got a few beers, the bartender was great...very on top of things even though it was busy. After an hour of waiting, three walk-ins came in, and the waitress promptly seated them. We were annoyed and angry, and promptly paid the bartender and left. Can't rate the food, because we did not get that far!
