new resturant in Baldwin
I have tried the melangeapron twice and both times have been dissapointed with not only service but quality of food. The first visit i waited for 40 MINUTES to be seated for a party of two.(7:40 seated) then we ordered beers. Let me just say the disorganization og the wait staff was impressive! If I were a waitress or server I would have asked for the bartenders cell# so that I could call in or text the bar orders instead of waste time running in circles trying to get drinks and the bartender trying to settle tabs through the resturant. WE ORDER (8:00). We have another beer, (8;30). 8:45 our server comes by and asks if we have ordered yet. I'm in the bathroom and my husband repeats the order and asks her to hurry. 9:25 our food arrives. Small portions at best. the wait was unbearable, and the food was just"ok". 9:40 the waitress asks us to tell her our ouder because she cant find the ticket. 10:00pm, we leave after much complaining with our meal comped, just paying for the good beer. My second visit was almost as bad. Long wait time for food.(We were seated immediately) 30 min for a blt and french onion soup that was served with a cold piece of swiss cheese on top. Hardly the discription in the menu. The bread for the blt was soo hard that I couldnt believe that it hadn't been retired to the cruton pile yet. I welcome any place tha has "good" beer on tap, but i think that the melange apron is trying to do too much. For one thing, there is no good entrance,and the wait staff and the bar aren't communicating. I hope that the owners rethink the menu and the layout of the resturant and their customer service skills.
