Desperados (Greenwich)

Just came back from this place and needed to vent so here I am. It is my birthday and my girlfriend wanted to treat me!

You may of had a fantastic meal here, the food wasn't that bad - but tonight the service really let them down and as a result we will not be going back and urge you not to take the chance!

We walked into a half empty restaurant and were seated crammed between 2 full tables of 6. when asked if we could move we were told NO. (we should have left then). They then said we could move to another table as soon as somebody else went so we continued to order our starter. Our starter arrived - and the other table left we moved onto their table only to be told half way through the move that we couldnt go there. We eventually were moved to yet another table, and as we sat down our half eaten starter was taken away - when we asked where it had gone they presented our main course! Ridiculous! We finished our meal and asked for the bill. The bill arrived with the service charge added. when we said that we were happy to pay for the meal but not the added tip. we were then told we had to pay for it and the manager came over, after 5mins of talking with a confrontational manager we left.
