I've gone there a number of times and been disappointed with the speed of service. Typically for work lunches or pre-Aud event dinner. I don't think i ever got out of there on time. Lunches were typically dead and the dinners were packed. The food is good, and the pizzas were amazing...but when they discontinued pizza, there wasn't enough to convince me to come back. Maybe if I have a few hours before another Aud event? too bad since its the closest place...

I went here the day before there new menu took effect. Most items weren't available and we got generally bad vibes so we walked out without ordering.

The "not available" thing was temporary while they were changing the menu, but you are not the first who "got generally bad vibes".  It always surprises me because I find it such a friendly place.

they are currently having a very public spat online through twitter and facebook about poor service. Frankly I tend to agree with the customer that critiqued their quality of service...

I've said it before - too bad because the food was excellent (esp the discontinued pizzas). Ah well, there are plenty other restaurants to try in town...

Never a good idea to get into a public spat like that. Oh well.

I've always had good experiences there though. The only bad one being the "unavailable" issue due to changing menus, so I'll give them a free pass.

And now they are going into the old King Crab and not opening back up in the Ottawa Plaza.

I hope someone picks up the old location.  Very convenient to me!  

I would not have been inclined to go back if it opened under the same name.

It's interesting how the (current) most recent comment on their Facebook page is from a customer who voiced immense dissatisfaction with their experience, and then the owner took full blame for it, admitting that they had not provided the experience they desired to, and that it is at the root of their decision-making process now.

Is that really an upgrade of a location??
