It's Valentines Day. My husband and I are apart because I'm on a business trip. Valentine Day Dinner for 1. This is a nice, upscale restaurant. I choose it because it's in my hotel and other restaurants nearby are busy for the holiday. I am the 2nd person in the restaurant with one other man in a nearby table. I have a few requests for the waitress as I'm Gluten Intolerant and need to understand what I am ordering, also, I work for a company who does not reimburse for alcohol so I must get two separate receipts. About the time I order my delicious appetizer and salad, people start to arrive. One waitress, one hostess and a person who is trying to help the waitress take plates to tables and clear plates when the "couples" start to arrive. I become invisible. The focus on "the couples" and their service becomes the priority. It went downhill from there and I even felt bad for myself that I was the only woman in this nice restaurant that wasn't worthy of a rose because I didn't have a man at my table? Sad oversight. Oh, and in addition, a family with 2 small children, fussing, crying, etc are seated 3 feet behind me, the poor pathetic loner. I asked for my glass of wine to go so I could at least enjoy it. The food was excellent, the execution of the front of the house was extremely poor. I still left a 20% tip. Guess I just couldn't treat them like they treated me.
