Gitlo's in the Globe

Gitlo's, the dim sum place in Allston that I really like was reviewed today in Globe. Denise Taylor give it a glowing review.


If you read it, you'll see how she goes on and on about Richard Li, his dim sum expertise and how he led her to Gitlo's. Well, who introduced Richard to Gitlo's? That's right, I did! Remember this post: http://gltsoi.livejournal.com/23833.html from January? The Richard in my post is one and the same as the one in the Globe. Yet again, a man takes credit from the woman to which it belongs, story of my life.

While the food was mostly good, the service was atrocious. They had the chance to redeem themselves, but instead, they just added insult to injury...

My friend and I ended up having to share a table with another party of two. During the 25-minute wait for our table, we had already decided what we wanted, and ordered within minutes, which prompted our table-mates to remark that they should have looked at the menu too while waiting. So surprise surprise when they got their char siu bao and the bacon-wrapped shrimp paste before we did. Some 20-30 minutes later, the waitress comes over and tells us that they're out of char siu bao and that they're still making the bacon-wrapped shrimp paste! When I pointed out that we had ordered those items before our tablemates, but they had already received them a while ago, her reply was "sorry, we don't have any more". Completely ignored my complaint, which made me even more pissed. I'm just sorry I didn't complain more and make a scene...

I definitely don't expect them to make me feel like I'm their best customer ever, but to make me feel like a second-rate customer? No thanks!

That's really too bad, but I'm not surprised. I'm sure the Globe review and the frenzy of the crowds to follow have overwhelmed them. I would give it a couple of weeks for them to work out the kinks and try it again.

Yeah, my two-armed boyfriend and I thought their service was great! But then again, we went before the Globe review thanks to Ms. Tsoi's recommendation.
