Global Gatherings...blah

Went to Global Gatherings on Central Ave. for lunch recently, my 2nd time. The service was exceptionally slow and bad, but what really burns my britches is that I paid $14 for a scoop of chicken waldorf salad (with no greens to speak of). In fact, it was badly in need of salt and/or pepper (which was not on the table), but there was no waitress or other staff around to ask for this during the course of my meal. What burned me even further was that it wasn't until I was signing the bill that the owner/manager came over to ask how everything was. Asking about my meal at the time I am calculating a tip just doesn't cut it. It's obvious she wasn't spending her time in the kitchen facilitating the food, everything took forever to reach the table.

Don't go unless you have a lot of time, patience and $$$.

  1. I couldn't agree more. Did you try their "sorry" desserts? and what's more - What's with that whole business concept anyway??? It's just too weird.

    1. Dim Sum Diva, is this the place that combines a restaurant and a furniture store?

      1. Yes, and neither is any good. Wish they'd bring back the dim sum place that used to be there!

          yes.. I agree wholeheartedly with you, Dim Sum Diva.. I went there a year ago with a friend for a birthday dinner.. and it couldn't have been more slow, more depressing, and less flavorful food! i surely won't go there again..

          On the other hand, I went to the Watercolor Cafe this weekend with a group, and ohhh the service, the food, the wine - it was impeccable!
