St John's Tavern

I went there last week after long absence (could not agree with service there, so it took for a while for me to take a courage to go back) only to find the reason why this place got such a mixed reviews. My food was very good. Spanish fusions in good ingredients. Starters were nice (laser clams with chorizo) but portion was very small. For the main, meat. was a bit leathery but seabass was good. However, service was very snotty as before. I only hope the tip we left just go to kitchen staff, not to the floor staff who, i have to say, if they are not happy to serve, should not work in the restaurant! They really jeopardize whole experience. Don't underestimate the customers. The point to do dinner locally is we want to get 100 relaxed like at home without worrying about the way to be back etc. In this, I rather go to OK food places with humanly warm service. Unfortunately the visit will be definitely our last visit to this place. Three of us agreed it silently. Adios.
