I ate at Pierre Gourmet a couple of months ago, and was excited to try their desserts after a friend recommended the restaurant. However, after receiving the worst service I’ve ever had, I can only assume the staff presumed we were foreign tourists and treated us badly, as my sister and I are Korean. Further, the staff clearly doesn't consider non-Americans to be customers worthy of good service. We were thus subjected to intentionally horrible, reprehensible service; let me explain why their service constitutes racism.
With specific regard to the bad service, the waiter ignored us for at least the first 10 minutes, walking right past us again and again, despite the restaurant being far from busy. The waiter then had a very aloof and condescending attitude while taking our order. The food arrived within a reasonable amount of time, but was brought without utensils, so because I’d ordered soup, I couldn't eat. Another server, not our waiter, said he'd bring a spoon, but instead approached other diners, made small talk, and basically forgot about us. The waiter didn't come over to our table for a long time, but after I finally got his attention and told him about not having a spoon, he brought one over, but more or less dropped it onto the table.
Finally, it's customary for a waiter to check on his or her patrons from time to time, but while this waiter would ask other patrons how their meals were or if they needed anything, when asking us how everything was, he would walk by as quickly as possible without even waiting for a response. Again, this treatment was intentional, as we saw him providing other patrons with far better service, asking detailed questions, making conversation, bringing requested items, etc.
Honestly, any of these actions individually would be excusable as a result of the normal busy operation of a restaurant, but taken as a whole, it's obvious we were being singled out to purposefully receive exceptionally poor service. Again, it is our opinion that this terrible service came as a direct result of our being Asian, meaning Pierrot Gourmet supports and engages in racist practices. If you disagree with racism and prejudice, I would suggest avoiding this restaurant at all costs.
