Disappointed in Wood Spoon

Last Friday, I arrived at Wood Spoon at approximately 11:15 to introduce someone to it for lunch. There was a napkin taped to the window stating that they would open at 11:30 even though they are suppossed to open at 11:00. I told my companion that it would be worth the wait. We crossed the street for just a minute to check out a few other restaurants and returned to find that the time on the napkin had changed to 11:45. As we had to get back to work, we left at that point.

All was not lost however as we made our way over to the Lazy Ox Cafe for the 1st time for both of us for a very nice and timely lunch.

  1. So sorry to hear that. I'm assuming you've been there before, since you were introducing a friend to it? They never open on time. Hubby and I have been there 4 or 5 times and each time--and it is def. worth the wait--their "doors open" times have been consistently late and never consistent.

    We put up with it because we love the owner and her food. Hope your friend gets to try it soon. Good to hear, too about the Lazy Ox cafe.

      Yes, I've been there several times and am a huge fan which just added to the disappointment.

        A restaurant that rarely opens on time? You got to be kidding me? Not opening on time, once in awhile is one thing; things can happen. But, happening on a consistent basis? Unacceptable.

          especially in downtown where people have limited time for lunch.

            a BIG. DISAPPOINTMENT - FIRST TIME THERE.. NOTHING WAS GREAT AND THE
            VAUNTED CHICKEN POT PIE ISN'T AS GOOD AS MARIE CALLENDAR'S. PLUS THE SERVICE WAS SLOW. ALL IN ALL A WASTE OF TIME.
