a few of us went to lucio
on flamingo last night for dinner. no real complaints about the food, i liked everything i ate and thought it was worth the money.
but the service was downright humorous.
the waiter was just awful and terribly annoying. tried way too hard to entertain us, he wasn't amusing at all, and it took forever to both order the food and for the food to come. he flat out forgot one of the appetizers but still charged us for it.
the wine follies were the best part. we ended up buying some $35 bottle after he unsuccessfully tried to sell us a bottle that was over $100 (bad read buddy!). we finished the wine and he asked us if we would like another bottle.
everyone had their fill, so we declined. then, he came back 5 minutes later with bottle in hand and asked again. we declined again, and he said "ok no problem, i'll just leave the bottle sitting over here in case you change your mind."
then he came back to the table for a third time and asked again, knocking the price down to $25. we declined. he also gave the girl at our table a free glass of some other ****ty stuff that nobody liked.
10 minutes later he asked a record-setting fourth time if we would like another bottle, reducing the price to $20!! we were unbelievably polite and declined yet again. i told him we're holding out until it's $5.
re-telling this story it seems like something from a bad comedy movie, but i assure you that this really happened. we joked about haggling on our entree prices but i think that we actually should have...
