Possibly the most uptight and unpleasant dining experience I've had in all the years I've dined in Provincetown.

It was work to get the reservation I wanted, but I complied with their schedule and took what was available. When we arrived, we were told that our table was unavailable and if we liked, we could sit outside. It was a cool rainy night and we declined. We waited over 40 minutes for our table. The hostess did nothing to make us comfortable or shoo the people occupying our table towards a bar, but stood there wringing her hands and avoiding our gaze. She sat 6 other people while we waited. Finally, the party that was holding our table left, making jokes about the fact that they had inconvenienced us. Nice.

The table we finally received had a lovely view of the dishwasher and the open, co-ed and not so tidy toilet. The staff, right down to the bus-persons, were uniformly snotty. As were the clientele.

A portion of risotto amounted to less than (2) tablespoons. I ate it without complaining. However, the two ninnies at the next table, who were sharing it, made a big point of exclaiming how it was the perfect size portion to share, and why did people have to eat so much food, anyway.

The food was, as it is in so many of these haute places, alright. Just food. Nothing special.

Basically, I couldn't wait to get out of there.

There are way too many other pleasant dining establishments on the Cape to ever have to endure as torturous an evening as we spent there.

I'll continue dining at the Red Inn and The Mews and Jimmy's Hideaway before I return to this shack.

Pros: a nice bay view

Cons: everything else
