Re: “Riverside Cafe and Deli

By far the worst service I have received in Chicago. Waitress was rude, inattentive, slow...It's really a shame because the location is so great and the outdoor seating area is perfect for leisurely breakfasts and lunches on weekends. I'm not willing to chalk my experience up to one bad server spoiling my perception. ALL of the waitstaff seemed content on making their $1-2 in tips per table without doing any work. Wait time for the check was a good 15 minutes during an uncrowded afternoon, as well as an additional 10 minutes before our waitress decided to show up to the table to take our order.

A great restaurant as far as food (taste), service, and ambience. The portion sizes, however, leave much to be desired. Maybe it's a new trend, but what is chic about leaving your customers hungry after $150?
