Re: “La Petite Folie

Last weekend we visited La Petite Folie in Hyde Park. This had to have been the worst service we have ever received at an upscale restaurant here in Chicago! It was ridiculously slow and we nearly got up and left! The ONLY thing stopping us from doing so is the lack of any nice eateries in that area. Our reservation was for 6PM and we arrived a little early coming from the Court theater. we were seated immediately, but did not get served even our soup or salad till an hour later. We began to notice that we were not the only ones being ignored and that several tables were left sitting for an unreasonably long time. As I watched more closely it became apparent that the wait staff were expected to be the greeters, the order takers, the bar tenders and the busboys!! They were being run ragged and our server was especially discombobulated, nervous and apologetic. The food was ok but certainly not worth the wait. We will not be going again. What a disappointment.
