“recently stayed with a late arrival and L explained the rules,and one was that breakfast is served 8am to 9:30ish...arrived at the dinning room at 9:15 am and gave our order to the server...we were told we were late but they would take care of us,by the chef herself,when the orders arrived they weren't correct,I approached the chef and questioned why my order wasn't correct,she informed me that I wasn't given a choice,the server came in at that moment and I questioned her about my order and she hesitated to tell the truth and finally admitted to a might have...I told the chef that I found her rude and totally out of line...her response,"that's your opinion" with no apology,I'm the customer at $229 a nite and the chef is calling me a liar...don't think so...a side note,bathroom amenities lacking,very old tv,3rd floor walk-up...lacks personal attention all around...staff not customer friendly or attentive...elegant venue with no ammenities and extremely unattentive staff.”
