No picnic: a review of Clawdaddy's Great American Picnic, Bonifacio High Street

10 signs a restaurant is not being run well:
  1. The waiters and waitresses are all running around the restaurant like headless chickens.
  2. The specialty of the house is crab, and they've run out of it even if it's only 7PM.
  3. In the middle of taking your order, your server tells you he'll be back in 1 minute. He doesn't come back until you ask another server to hunt him down.
  4. Waiters keep bringing dishes you didn't order to your table.
  5. You're almost done with your meal, and the pitcher of lemonade that comes with one entree still hasn't been served, even after you've asked for it 3 times.
  6. They run out of clean glasses.
  7. The food quality is disappointing: undercooked, overfried, and all served at room temperature, including the soup. Lukewarm oyster chowder? Gross.
  8. There is only 1 washroom stall for each gender, AND they're shared with the adjacent restaurant.
  9. For a restaurant that expects its patrons to get their hands dirty, they have ridiculously small sinks in the washrooms.
  10. When your bill arrives, you find they neglected to charge you for one appetizer (but you're so thoroughly disgruntled you don't bother to point out the oversight).
