My family and I were in Vienna and came upon this bar that seemed like a perfect place. We could watch the opera on the big screen at The Opera House and watch the World Cup at the same time. There was one open outside table that had an unobstructed view of the bar’s TV, but the table had a “Reserved” sign on it. The hostess, however, told us we could use the table and took off the “Reserved” sign. So we sat down, ordered some over-priced drinks, which was fine, and settled in. We were served, and the waitresses weren’t exactly warm to begin with, but no worries — at least for a while. A short time later some customers came to the table and said it was theirs, that they had reserved it. The waitress then came up quickly and said we had to move — immediately. We explained to her that the hostess had seated us at the table, that we hadn’t just sat down, but she didn’t believe us. They wanted us to move to the next table over without a view of the TV. We said — fine, but you should comp us a couple drinks for being so unprofessional. The waitress started arguing vehemently while the hostess disappeared. The waitress absolutely refused to consider any kind of good-faith gesture.
The servers here have some idea they’re upscale, but they’re crass and rude.
If you want to risk getting treated like trash, go here.
