At Le Celler,( our first time eating there) on my 50 th birthday. The food was good but the service was so wonderful I wanted to cry. My DD had made us shirts that said, “Today is my 50th birthday” and my DH has a shirt that said “Today is my wife’s 50th birthday”.
We were seated and the server was so sweet. Brought the bread, which we ate in about 3 secs. Brought us more. During the meal, he brought the phone with goofy talking on it. Even though I knew about, it was still a thrill that someone did it for me. He brought me a dessert with the candle. It was a chocolate cup with chocolate moose (that’s not the right spelling, I’m talking about the pudding stuff), with the chocolate drizzle that said "happy birthday and topped with spun sugar. (I can’t remember what I ate last week, but this I remember :blink:) When he brought the dessert, he asked if we had a camera so he could take a picture of us. We didn’t even think of that.
Everything was just so wonderful. He really made us feel like he was taking care of us and not just bringing us food. We spoke to his manager afterward and left him a very large tip.
Just to show how much service makes a difference,and after eating there several more times, since our last trip, we have decided, yeah, the food is good but no better than a local steak place at 1/3 the price. And since we have got the TIW route, our food dollars can go a lot further at other places. (however if we were doing a split stay where we could get the dining plan for just a day or two, we’d use it for eating at Le Celler. It is a great deal with the dining plan.)
