Family friendly, Yeah right!
Okay, I really have no words for the experience I had while attending a wedding here this past weekend. I understand these folks are running a business and need to protect what they own but you also should know how to deal with people tactfully.
I am a father of two little ones and I always watch them closely but a 2 and 5 year old get excited when the see their family and a dance floor. I was told by the dj that the owners do not want anyone running around on the dance floor because it could cause too much noise for the patrons of the restaurant below. Wait... what?? YOU were the ones which decided to facilitate weddings above YOUR restaurant. Maybe you should design the place better. Or, maybe you shouldn't have weddings any more or maybe you shouldn't have your hand in multiple in both. How about you pick one or the other.
Then while the kids from the wedding were also having fun but by no means being unruly, we were told to make sure they get in there seats and away from the windows and curtains. I was there already handling the situation and had some lady come from out of no where to tell me this.
Finally the last time I was reprimanded was when three of the children were moving out of the way and off the dance floor and into a hallway which was less crowded. It just happened that we ended up in the way of two servers who told us to move out of the way and stay out of the area for safety reasons. So a lounge area with a few places to sit is unsafe??
Come on. Get a grip and realize that you're not a super high-end establishment. You are dated and out of touch with reality. So check yourself and realize that the people who come to your restaurant/banquet hall are paying you money and should be treated with respect.
