rushed at babbos

With a 6:30 reservation will they rush me to get to next seating? In an upscale restaurant like this we usually spend about 2 hours

    No, you should be just fine. I've never felt rushed when dining at Babbo.

      If they are indeed rushing you, you won't know it! That's how great the service is imho...

        I've never felt rushed, but then again, I wouldn't really allow a restaurant to rush me either.

          I have never heard of anyone having anything less than great service and great food. Lupa is great too.

            while it's true that many love Babbo, there are many reports here of uneven food and much-less-than-great service...

              We were underwhelmed by both service and food at Babbo.

            We had dinner at Babbo Tuesday with a 6:30 reservation. They were not in a hurry and neither were we. Finished about 9PM. Very good service. Food wasn't bad either.

              Happened to our party of four sometime back, and as a result, I have never returned.
