One of the most annoying things that can happen at a restaurant is to feel like you are not part of the inner circle. This is even more annoying when it impacts the quality of the service. Fortunately, in our case, the waitress was great, and made a valiant effort to compensate for her colleagues shortcomings. Granted we were there at the end of Brunch/Lunch, but I don't think that should be an excuse. The food was quite good so that helped. But there are many places to eat in Atlanta and I don't want to interfere with someone's private place.
