We were seated rather quickly at the worst table in the place. The waiter that took our order left and another delivered our baked cheese. Apparently they gave our dinner order to another table. After waiting over an hour we had to ask for the check because we were tired of waiting. 20 minutes later our food showed up. They took 20% off the bill which wasn't enough.
