Another 5 minutes or so go by, and she brings out the salads and runs off again in back before we can remind her about the drinks. We finally have to flag down another server to get refills. Our food comes a little while later, and she offers to top off our drinks. Returning about a minute later she asks if the food was o.k. and if we needed anything else, then disappeared once again. From time to time we saw her at other tables, but she never checked on us again. After we were done eating we sat there quite awhile, empty plates stacked and shoved to the side, waiting on the check. We had to yet again flag down another server and ask them to please tell our waitress we needed our bill. We were planning on paying with a credit card, but after waiting ANOTHER 10 minutes, never receiving the bill and being unable to spot our waitress, we scrape together enough paper money and change to cover what we figure we owed, leave it in a big pile and walk out.
As soon as I get back to work, I look up their number, call up the resturant and ask for a manager I tell him how I never got a bill so I just left some money on the table in case the waitress tries to pocket it and claim we skipped out, and tell him how poor our service was. He offers an apology, thanks me for calling and says he will speak to her.
