I have attended numerous meals and events at OCG&CC across the past 12+ years. I have had some really spectacular meals there. Tonight's food was just ok, but it's the inattentive service at the front desk (coat check) that shocked me! I know the place well enough I should have just walked past the front and right into the dining room where I was pretty sure my event would be held. Instead, I did the right thing and stopped to ask if that's where my group was meeting. They didn't recognize the name of the sponsoring group as I described it. Instead of reading the list of booked events going on, the woman just declared there's no group like that here now. I was essentially turned away because of their inattention to detail.
I got back in my car, drove to my office to double-check the invitation and time. Then I phoned in, now with more confidence that I do not have the wrong venue. This time the woman actually "read" the list to me, and I recognized the group immediately. Why hadn't she done that before?? When I walked through the front door the 2nd time, the woman was all defensive, and wanted to blame the group -- that they had not given a full & complete description of the event. This fiasco made me 45 minutes late to the event. Then, once I got to my table another couple admitted they, too, had a similar conversation with her and they almost believed it until they just persisted and figured out they're in the right place. Pardon me OCG&CC, but I will never again check with your staff. I will just look around on my own, thank you!!
This place is SWANK.
Good luck affording a membership though.
