It is with great disappointment that I write this review regarding Bean Vegan Cuisine. I attempted to contact the restaurant to speak to a manager before writing this review; however, the attendant who answered the phone informed me that, "There are no managers, only owners, and the owners are not in right now." She also didn't know when they would be in. So the only option I'm left with is to voice my dissatisfaction on social media. I've been a vegan for over 20 years. I moved to Charlotte from Atlanta in 2011 and always enjoyed going to Bean Vegan Cuisine for takeouts and to dine in. I live in Albemarle now and don't always get a chance to visit as often as I used to. So when a friend decided to meet me there for lunch on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, I was excited. When we walked in, one of the servers (perhaps one of the owners) sat us down at a table. He didn't take our drink orders, but no problem. Though my friend is health conscious, he's somewhat new to veganism, so I asked our server to recommend the best or most popular veggie burger. He told us and then walked away to give us time to decide. When he returned, my friend had a few more questions regarding the carnitas tacos dish. At this point, the server seemed impatient and made the comment, "Then you're not ready to order." My friend replied, "I'm ordering now," and the server responded, "No, you're reading the menu and I have other people to serve." My friend looked at me in total astonishment at the blatant rudeness and said, "Let's go?" And I said, "Yeah!" So we got up to leave. As we're walking away, the server then says something to the effect of: Okay, fine. In my opinion, he could've kept that. When we got to the front door to walk out, I was so shocked, I turned around and held my hands out with my head to the side and said, "Really?" The server threw his hands up and shrugged as if to say: I don't care. We were BLOWN away! I understand that sometimes customers can take a while in deciding which dish they'd like to order; I'd imagine that's quite common at any restaurant. But I've never seen anyone treat customers so rude when we did nothing wrong and hadn't even been there long enough to be considered troublesome. All the server had to do was choose to be tactful by explaining that, well, it looks like you have a few more questions and I'll be glad to help once I take care of another table. That would've sufficed. Actually, there were a million different ways he could've handled this situation, but simply chose to be short, curt and outright rude. My friend and I were so perturbed at his behavior, the only sense we could make of it is that he simply didn't like us from the moment we walked in. What other reason could there have been? We are still deeply offended by the major disrespect we received from this owner/server at Bean Vegan Cuisine and have no intention of subjecting ourselves to this type of treatment at their establishment ever again. How unfortunate!Read More...
