DANGER= the learning curve at the Midtowns newest hangout Slider Inn at Cooper and Peabody is sliding into oblivion. Everyone wants this place to succeed despite its extreemly slow service and the apparent neglect by the otherwise successful restaurant owner Aldo DeMartino who lives just two blocks from the establishment. This place has it, LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION just in the heart of an otherwise residential neighborhood. Walking distance to literally thousands of midtownees- they could serve frozen pizza and beer and do extremely well but for all concerned they have the damndest time getting even drinks to patrons. Is it the culture of the wait staff I must ask as they seem unaffected by customers who wait eagerly for any attention?? I say serve the lady a glass of wine- or whatever and the food orders can wait patiently. SMILE and take the sale- first impressions are indeed lasting. And if patrons must make it to the bar for service you should not be discouraged. Wait staff must sell themselves, they earn their living establishing rapport and are the truest representatives of their employer. Aldo please help this place, get rid of the old wait staff who rather be at their regular locals and get anxious bodys who want to make it happen here!!! Despite everthing you could actually screw this one up by not trying~
Way overpriced and I found the menu a bit chintzy. My husband loves Monte Cristos and is the only reason we go there. Red Lobster is a better deal than this place as everything is ala carte.
This place was stinky and the service was horrible. The smoked salmon tasted like charcoal and the crawfish macaroni was HORRIBLE. Will never be going back. Not to mention this what seemed to be a couple that were behind the bar were very rude to me.
The place went down FAST when Wanda Wilson left. Without Wanda, the place is pretty poopie. Sorry
Very much over-rated. A nice place overall, but the service received during a business dinner was sub standard, to say the least. I've had much better steaks in this city, and was a bit discouraged with my, and my client's experience as a whole.
This club is ok on the most part. What I didn't like was the waitress hitting on my boyfriend the whole night. We weren't even at a table, WE WERE AT THE BAR. Very unprofessional, but what do you expect, right? How about a little descent RESPECT!!!!!
If you are into nursing home crowds then this is the place to go. I have been 3 times and the same crowd is there every week. Drinks not great and the food needs some TLC.
