From the moment you ask to be seated is when I started to regret my decision.
I have been to Jamies twice and both times I was let down. When a celebrity chef opens a restaurant there is a certain
Expectation that comes with it. An expectation of Incredible food and great service.
The service is a complete let down. The staff seem to think that they are doing you a huge favour by offering you a seat in the restaurant. Then after it takes them forever to seat you, you are kept waiting for someone to hand you a menu card for like 20 mins! And all this happened to us when the restaurant wasn't full. They gave us a table outside at the far end even when there were empty tables inside.
Then we ordered. It took an hour and a half for the food to come. When we asked the wait staff why it is taking so long, instead of apologising she corrected me on what time we placed the order.
My bill total was close to $250. For that amount I expect good service and even more so when it comes with a chef's name attached to it. All I can say is Mr Jamie is oblivious on how things work at his kitchen.
This place has been a disappointment both times. I would strongly suggest against it. Try brotzeit instead.
