Never written a negative social media review (Yelp, Trip Advisor) but felt compelled after last night. The short form: awful service. The worst in my years of enjoying restaurants. And worse, from what we experienced from several servers and the ridiculous Maitre'd, it was systemic. Don't bother. It was the only restaurant I have ever walked out. The long form: Joelle's was recommended by the innkeeper of the exquisite B&B we were staying. We arrived just before our res time of 7pm. The place is small, with a lovely patio. It was full. With the rec and the number of patrons in what could only be described as a remote spot, things looked good. Unfortunately, things went downhill quickly. The Maitre'd was from the Basil Fawlty school - he confused bumbling incompetence (a litany of poor service decisions in a very short period of time) with charm. Sadly, the very poor service continued with the very pleasant young waitress. It would seem that training was not a requirement for hire at Joelle's French Bistro. So many negatives happened in the hour before the wine arrived, my typing skills on this iPad will not accommodate all the info. We are not food and wine snobs. But, we expect a decent standard when paying for 'fine' dining. I wish I could report on what looked like lovely food. But, after smiling about the service, then laughing it off, our feelings developed to incredulity. At that time (70 minutes and counting) we threw $60 on the table for the $56 bottle of Bordeaux, and left. I wonder if they noticed?
