There were at least four parties who joined us before going to the Yale Rep’s 7:30PM performance of, “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf?” As they headed out to the show, we received across the board positive feedback from pre-theater guests regarding their dining experiences tonight. Bravo to the entire Saturday team of servers and support for executing superbly under the pressure of the theater time-crunch!
Monica S. J. (party of 2, tbl. 21, served by J.) commented that they had an amazing experience tonight. Everything they had for dinner was delicious, service was on point, and the view of the action from table 21 was, “so entertaining. The best seats in the house!” Bravo to J., Chef G., Chef J., Chef T., and the entire Saturday team!
Messaged to staff: “For all servers: going forward, whether or not you are remitting cash at the end, please always sign your cashout when you turn it in. Thank you!”
Messaged to staff: “ For all staff, the white, ‘credit linen,’ bin in the back busser station is ONLY for unused tablecloths (and napkins) that were delivered with preexisting blemishes. Anything that was soiled in the restaurant goes into the dirty linen bag by the dishwasher station. Thank you for doing a great job and enjoy your weekend!”
Sun.: partly cloudy; high 66F. Mon.: mostly sunny; high of 66F. Tues.: AM clouds / PM sun; high of 59F. Have a great weekend!
