We were at bamboo nw. We’ve never had such poor service there before. Normally they’re all about bringing roland edamame and tiny cups of water, but last night was a special brand of terrible. I’m gonna leave them a yelp review today.
-fancy place doesn’t do reservations on Saturdays but assured us it would be no big thing to get a table at opening.
-we showed up at open and were told our party of 6 would be seated in 5 minutes.
-20 minutes later, seated after roland starts sobbing that he’s thirsty and why can’t he have some water?
-10 minutes after that finally took drink order.
-10 minutes after that, food order.
-roland starts losing his shit because we’ve been sitting for an hour with no food
-Jer takes him for a walk.
-server comes back, special can’t be made gluten free after all, can we order again?
-Jer and roland back. Now 1.5 hours into dinner, still no food. Drinks are gone, no one has come to ask if we want a second round.
-they drop off only my plate. No other food comes out. I ordered spicy tuna, Roland won’t eat it.
-1 hour and 45 minutes in, still no toddler food. Roland is done. Jer takes him for a walk. About 5 minutes after they leave, most of the rest of the food shows up. Gf tempura (veggie tempura for Roland and normal for the rest of us) still not arrived.
-2 hours in, server apologizes and takes second round of drink orders.
-2 hours and 15 in, drinks and rest of food arrives. Jer and Roland went to get ice cream, made it through the salt and straw line, and ate their ice cream.
- Jers and Roland’s food boxed up. Request check, since server still hadn’t brought it.
-2.5 hours later, bill is paid and finally go to find Jer and Roland. Dinner disaster complete. No karaoke pursued due to rest of disaster.
-pretty sure we’re done with that restaurant forever. Too many places to eat in ptown to put up with bad service even for good sushi.
Still three days to go for birthday.
Jer and I don’t see each other on tuesdays , so today is celebration day.
Baby boy doesn’t even look like a baby anymore after the last couple weeks.
He’s in 3T shirts, 2T pants, and size 8 toddler shoes- from two weeks ago when he was in 2T shirts, 18-24m pants, and size 5 shoes. He got so big so fast.
my grocery budget and my clothes budget are both crying.
- Jer(reading): small was feeling grim and grumpy
- Ro: oh, tomorrow you will feel better. Mama will get a bandaid and then you will be much better.
- Jer: that would probably work, I guess. Should I keep reading?
- Ro: yeah. Small is still mad.
