I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

Went to Aristos on 71st Street last night, Miami New Times' 2009 Best Greek Restaurant.

The owner seated us and I picked up sparkly very good vibes from her.

The food was good.

The service (there were like three waiters tending to maybe 12/13 tables...) was abysmal. Maybe it's because we sat outside, but our waiter was entirely too stressed-out and gone entirely too long for entirely too many stretches of time, for absolutely no reason.

But the food was taaaaaaaaasty.

has it been open long enough for the waitstaff kinks to be worked out?
I love tasty greek food.

Yeah, I'd say - the restaurant opened, changed the Neon, and won the best of 2009, and then it was printed in the paper. I'd say long enough...

Maybe it's supposed to be part of their 'charm'.
I can usually forgive unexceptional food if the service is excellent, but not the other way around,

I completely agree, re: forgiving the food if the waiter is awesome. I walked away from the restaurant happy with the food, but I keep remembering how frustrated I was when my water glass wasn't filled for over 15 minutes...
