I've read many good reviews for restaurants on their opening night, and I think most people would make allowances for first night teething problems. Indeed, I've been to other restaurants on opening night, but have never experienced anything this bad. Had the service at Hattush just been a bit erratic, or if the food had taken a while to arrive, I wouldn't have batted an eyelid, but our experience, and clearly that of many other diners, could not be put down to first night problems. It certainly couldn't account for the food we were served, most of which was revolting. If a restaurant decides to open before they have recruited competent staff and, more importantly, a competent chef who serves up normal sized portions, they must expect to receive criticism from diners who have had their evening ruined. I would criticise any restaurant under any circumstances where I had experienced such an dreadful meal. As I said in my first post, I did feel sorry for the manageress as she clearly knew what a disaster the opening night had been. I hope for her sake that things improve, but don't see how they can without a complete change of staff.
