Native New Yorker Complaints & Reviews

Native New YorkerWorst service three times

We came for dinner at 8pm with a party of six. We ordered drinks five minutes later. We place our food order at 8:21pm. At 9:09pm we inquired about the status of our order. Our waitress told us that our food was in the window and she would be right back with it. 11 minutes later we couldn't find our waitress. We finally see her 10 minutes later with our food less one order which she said she forgot to put that order in. I asked for the manager who said she would get the order out to us. The attitude of the waitress was horrible as she was standing in the background muttering under her breath with dramatic unneccessary mannerisms. The manager brought our last order out. This was our second visit here with the same EXACT problem. I let the manager know I was less than impressed. I explained I would not be returning, and I won't.

    This is what I posted to the Native New Yorker website RE: Tatum & Bell Phoenix location.
    Worst management encounter ever! Floor was greasy, I even took a napkin and wiped it on the floor to show the manager. He said that it was due to high volume of business that the fryers were doing???? Come on! ANY french fry guy at Macky D's will tell you that the grease vapors DO NOT travel into the dining room. That's what a hood system is for. He also responded that after hours the floor was power washed. REALLY, hey Mr Manager where are your floor drains located to drain the water? I even asked the employees and they said you DO NOT power wash floors every night liked you claimed. If you want to survive in our neighborhood...don't lie...and get the training and experience to be a manager and handle a packed house. You also missed an opportunity to promote the house by not giving every customer a "Stripper 'card during the ASU / UofA game. As part of the closest high school to your location, I WILL NOT recommend you to faculty, staff or parents.

Native New YorkerBad service

I'm posting this for everyone to see. This is a copy of what I sent the company. I am 100% NOT HAPPY WITH THEIR SERVICE.

I ate dinner at your Yuma location today (1/9/09) and I had the worst possible dining experience ever. We had a party of 6 and we ordered food sometime around 7:30pm. We waited for our food for about 2 hours. I watched other diners come and go, and similar tables of 6 who were seated well after us and left well before we did. I'm 100% positive we ordered (not arrived at restaurant, but SAT at table and ordered) around this time, due to phone calls and text messages at this time. Our food took nearly 2 hours to arrive at our table, and then I still had to wait about 10-15 minutes extra for my entree and my little brother's dinner to arrive (all orders were placed at the same time). I asked to speak to a manager and was referred to "Jay". He apologized and offered a 50% discount on the ticket(everyone at the table heard this percentage). I agreed to the discount and ate. My wife and other members of my family had to leave, due to an appointment, and left my brother and I at the table to pay. When I received the bill, I was shocked to find only a 15% discount, being charged for a salad that our server OFFERED (he did not ask whether or not I wanted to ADD a salad, he asked whether I wanted the soup or salad), and being charged for three sides of ranch dressing (I believe my wife asked for ranch one time), for a bill total of somewhere at 76-78 dollars. At this point, I was extremely upset and asked to once again speak with Jay. He came over and spoke with us. I told him I was unhappy, and my two hours of waiting for food was not worth a 15% discount, and had I known or if he had spoken clearly that it was to be 15%, I would have left and eaten somewhere else that valued my business. He then raised his voice at me and told me that I was NOT waiting for two hours, but that I had only arrived about an hour ago (which would have made my arrival time somewhere around 8:30). I told him that I was positive I had been here waiting for food since around 7:20 or 7:30, and he raised his voice (which has to be one of the most unprofessional things that has ever happened in all of my dining experiences). He then, with a bad attitude, told me he only offered me 15%, and asked me if what I wanted was the removal of the overcharged items and a 50% discount. I told him yes, that is what I understood, and that is what I am asking. He stormed away, and our server delivered my new bill for a total of 44.90 (I have retained my bill and will scan and email upon request.) I really don't understand how, and maybe it is my lack of knowledge in mathematics, a 78 dollar tab can be HALVED into 45 dollars. I don't understand why he tried to tell me what time I arrived when I am 100% certain of my arrival and ordering times. I watched two boxing matches and some basketball games during my wait. I brought my family from out of town to experience a two hour wait and rudeness from management. This is not acceptable at all. I was not appreciative of management's attempted intimidation tactics and his rudeness. I do not feel I will ever set foot in the Yuma location again, and I will make it a point to let everyone know the quality of service and bad attitude I received from the manager. I am now under the impression that my business is not wanted, along with the business of any of my friends, family members, co-workers, colleagues and other people I communicate with through e-mail and otherwise. Other dining establishments would have comped the full tab for a two hour wait and horrible service. Instead your Manager lied to me, indirectly accused me of lying about my time waiting, raised his voice and acted very unprofessional toward our table. I am awaiting a response from someone higher up the chain than this manager. I am also requesting that this complaint be sent to the CEO of this company. I also am requesting that the manager NOT call me, or communicate with me via any means. I do not want to have to deal with this rude person again. Thank you.
