Our dining room staff on the Holiday last week was efficient but not especially likeable. Part of the problem was a conflict one of our tablemates had over some comment the assistant waiter made, which I think was taken out of context. Anyway, this caused quite a stir and our table was visited by the hostess and maitre'd - which sort of branded our whole table, even though we were innocent observers. I hate needless "scenes", especially when I was having a fine time!
We actually had a better time with a couple of wiseguy waiters who served us breakfast on two mornings - at open seating. They were funny and very good.
