Respond to Review of CLOSED: Nuage Cafe
Review: The food here might be wonderful. I'll never know because the experience I had just *trying* to eat there was so negative. Parkland is off my beaten track, but last Friday I was in the neighborhood, had the time, and had skipped lunch (busy day). I walked in, famished, about 2 pm. Door unlocked but no one there. The buffet closed. Eventually the owner, Thierry (I recognized him from the website photo), emerged from the kitchen. "Are you open for lunch?" I asked. "Or maybe dinner?" "We are open at dinner time." "When is that?" "Dinner time. When do you think dinner time is?" I didn't want a dialog. Just food. Failing that, a useful answer. I never got it. Just more frustrating dialog and silly questions like the one above. I have been vegan for 12 years, vegetarian for far longer. I would regularly patronize a restaurant that understands my diet. But these folks need to understand that a restaurant is about customer service, not Socratic-style dialog. That may be chic in Paris, but it is just annoying in Parkland. I hope they hire some American staff that can teach them.
