Interesting review by "Bob B."

I find it very interesting that Bob writes point for point to my own review, of course never commenting on the discrimination.

I also find it very interesting that they mention the waiter's name and claim that they have no idea what I'm talking about since we had the same waiter. When exactly did I write the waiter's name in my review? Hrmm, interesting isn't it.

And they also state that the other reviewer is a "SHE". How exactly did they know this when I never mentioned or insinuated my gender??

I have a very strong feeling this "BOB" reviewer is the owner or employee of this diner trying to sweep this act of discrimination under the rug. AGAIN assuming that their clientele is naive or stupid enough to believe the lies that still spew from their mouths.

Had these people had any integrity or sense of customer service or just human decency, they'd own up to the deplorable behavior and apologize and make sure that it doesn't happen again. But instead what do they do? They mask themselves as "reviewers" trying to pull one over on their customers.

Eat here if you want to but even if it isn't about discrimination, I wouldn't eat someplace where they treat their customers as naive and gullible. Instead of standing up for themselves and countering my claim of discrimination they resort to deceit.

This review only seals the nail in the coffin that they KNEW they were discriminating.

And for truth's sake I'm going to copy and paste their "review" before they edit it for the LIES they were just caught telling.

The whole meal was amazing
Current
We came in when it was buzy and we were forth so the host said it would be ten minutes till we would be seated. There were four groups ahead of me and i thought it would be longer after eight minutes the host said we have a booth so we sat. so far so good because the host was very polite and friendly and not rude. Our waiter Richardo came right over and said how are you today and then asked what drinks we would like and we asked for a decaf coffee and a pepsi. A few minutes pass and then the drinks came. Then he asked if we were ready to take our order and we said we need a few minutes and he said okay I will come back then a few minutes later he came back and we ordered and i had the beef stew and my friend ordered the tilapia greek stlye and we both had greek salads and chicken noodle soups which came with the meal. Then he asked what vegetables we would like to have and we said a baked potatoe. Then he walked a away then he came with a bread basket and then coldslaw and pickles. He also brought our salads. A few minutes later he brought our soups. Five minutes later we got our food and it smelled delicious. We ate half of it because they give you so much food but what we ate was so delicios and i had the rest of it the next day and it still tasted just as good. By far this diner has the best food I am definetly going back and my friend agrees. Then the waiter came over and asked what kind of dessert would you like and he explained the desserts they have and i had some rice pudding and my friend had a piece of cheesecake and it was delicious. We finally finished and we were stuffed so we asked for the check and for all the food we ate it was only about thirty eight dollars total. then we payed and asked what the waiters name was because we would like to be served by him when we go back and the host said it was richardo then we payed and he said have a good night. Overall the expirience was amazing. I don't know what happened with that other review but it was nothing like what she said cause we had the same waiter.

The whole experience at this diner was horrific. At first the circumstances, looked at individually, would not warrant such a harsh claim of discrimination but all tolled it was more than just a busy night at the diner. I'm sure those of you who are not Korean will not experience this. This is what happen, you draw your own conclusions.

We were a party of three and there was a line at the door. Two parties ahead of us and two behind us on the list. One party behind us also had 3 people. We were seated LAST.

We had to ask a busboy and the maitre d' to get us a waiter until we finally got our waiter after a good 10 minutes.

We had a 6 year old with us who was starving so I asked the waiter if he could do us a favor and bring us a basket of bread so she could munch on it. This request was met with a brusque, "yes i'm brining it all", as if we had asked for something out of the ordinary and it was huge inconvenience.

Bread and coleslaw arrived at the table but no drinks. We don't see our waiter for another 10 minutes. We flag him down and remind him that we didn't get our drinks - if he could get that to us when he had a chance. And we let him know that we would like to place a take out order as well. This was met with "Just give me a minute honey". He walks away and takes care of other tables. 5 more minutes pass and i see him sitting at the counter with his feet stretched out in front of him talking with the owner having a relaxed conversation as we still had no drinks.

We finally get our drinks, place the take our order. We are served our dinners. The broccoli that was served to the 6 year old was *** spoiled ***. Not cooked too much to the point of turning gray or burnt as the owner claimed. But let me point this out, why are they KNOWINGLY serving burnt food?

We flag over the maitre d' because, again, our waiter is no where to be found, and ask him to smell the broccoli. He makes a sour face and says oh yes that went bad. He ran off to find the owner only to have the waiter come back to us saying "I hear you didn't like your broccoli, do you want something else?". THIS is how they respond to serving someone SPOILED food. No apologies about how that could have happened, nothing. As we discuss the finer points of food being spoiled as opposed to being overcooked, he looks at us with a smirk on his face and asks if we're from the Korean church next door.

Wait a gd minute. What does my religion or affiliations to any organization have to do with spoiled food you're serving to your customers?!?!?!?! At this point we are IRATE. How DARE you ask me that question when we're trying to tell you you just poisoned our 6 year old girl? The owner comes by and tells us the same thing, offering us something else because "we didn't like the broccoli."

As I said when i started this tirade, that the individual acts aren't unusual. All restaurants get busy, all waiters get frazzled. That's not the problem. It is a HUGE problem when you start asking me if i'm from the Korean church next door because of my Asian eyes. If they thought for one moment that we wouldn't challenge what they did to us because we were "meek soft spoken broken English using Asian folk" they were sadly mistaken.

As we tried to get an explanation of why in the world the waiter would bring up anything about religion or race when we're discussion food, he back peddled saying we took it the wrong way. How would you like for me to have taken it?!?! What possible point were you trying to make when you brought up the Korean Church?????

You draw your own conclusions about what happened that night. You would think in this day and age and area, being in the melting pot of the United States of America in New York, I am completely disgusted by the behavior I experienced at the Blue Angel Diner, the owner and their wait staff.

Sadly enough the matri d' who said that the broccoli was spoiled shrank back into his chair as all this was going down obviously fearful of contradicting his boss. As we finally left the diner after being forced to pay for 2 of the dishes that was served to us that night, he apologized to us quietly when the owner and waiter walked away. He obviously knew we were in the right and felt bad about what happen.

We were seated last when there were two paries behind us with the same number of people.

We waited 15 minutes and asked two people before our waiter came to our table.

When asking for bread to satiate our 6 year old who was starving, we were met with a brusque,"yes i'm brining it all", as if we had asked for something out of the ordinary and it was huge inconvenience.

Pros: If you are served fresh food, it the taste is quiet good

Cons: If you are of any asian descent don't go here.

The Blue Angel Diner, located by the Residence Inn is a very much above average diner with the usual multi-page menu. The food is better than most diners and the prices are reasonable.
