Had a very nice meal at Lupa last night...started with the bucatini, finished up with the sweetbreads, too full for dessert!
However, we showed up at nine, put our names in for a table, and were told it would be 45 minutes' wait. Ended up being two hours.
I have no problem waiting two hours for dinner, particularly when I wasn't too hungry when we arrived. I do have a problem with being told 45 minutes and THEN waiting two hours.
I wasn't too miffed about it (having been pleasantly surprised by the original 45-minute estimate), but my friends were pretty peeved and made it known to the hostess, who brought us free prosciutto. Personally, I think they should have bought the glasses of wine we had at the bar during our wait...anyhoo.
Food was solid, as usual. Service was attentive and friendly. But the hostess should give better estimates on times to get a table...the two people in my group of four who'd never been to Lupa before will probably never go back, which is a shame.
