Dining out.

The best and worst experience.   We went to dinner at a near by Italian restaurant, that has been highly recommended...we received our drinks, had our order taken, received salads...then were forgotten. Until a person, not our waiter stopped by to see if we'd enjoyed our meal and saved room for desert.  We point d out politely that we'd never received our meal.   So 3 1/2 hours after arriving we finally left.  We did get food, no apology from management or even our waiter.   No comp like a drink or dessert.  And the food was only ok.  We won't go back. Yet I imagine it will be successful in spite of itself.

Last night we went to a new tapas restaurant.  The food was amazingly. The server attentive.  When the wine we ordered was unavailable we were offered a higher priced similar wine for the other price.  

Sadly because it is such a different food style I fear it may not last.  
So just in awe I indulged in desert.
