Beautiful place, SHOCKING service
This restaurant is so beautiful. It has a lovely view out across the water, and tables out on the lawn right next to the water, but the service is absolutely appauling and I would never ever go back. The first time we arrived to look at the menu, we had already been out to dinner and were just stopping by the check it out. The maitre'd actually ADMONISHED us for being 'so late' and told us that if we wanted to eat there we'd have to come back earlier. I couldn't believe we'd been told off when all we wanted to do was look at the menu! When we did go for dinner, we took a bottle of wine. As we were seated, we asked the waiter to open the wine and bring glasses. Ten minutes later we could see him setting one of the other tables. My boyfriend went over and asked him about our wine and he said he had forgotten. It took another 10 minutes until we actually got the glasses. Then, we ordered our food. The menu did not mention that the prawns would be battered, and I'm allergic to wheat. When they arrived, we asked if the batter was wheat. The waiter took the plate, went to ask, and then didn't come back. Finally, we had to ask another waiter what was happening, and the dish was brought back cold and we were informed that it did indeed have wheat. We asked if we could order something else, and were informed that the kitchen was now closed. If we had been served promptly the kitchen would still have been open! We swapped meals so that we could at least eat (now that it was cold) and then were told that since the kitchen was closed we couldn't have dessert. You would think that we were alone in this mess, but no kidding, I could hear the same scenario being played out in different ways all around us. A group of 8 sitting near us were already complaining when we first sat down. The entire meal was a debacle, if you're looking for a nice night, don't go to Rossi's! The food was nice (if cold), but it really wasn't worth it.
