I had only heard good things about Mea Culpa. But I was greeted with contemptuous service. An old friend of mine and I ordered a reasonably priced wine from the bar. First off, the barman tried to pour a more expensive drop. When we insisted on what we had asked for, he treated us as second class citizens for the rest of the night. It was only until we had racked up over $60 on a tab that we realised we were getting below par service. While we weren't ordering the most expensive thing on the menu, my friend and I had intended to stay for the long haul, based on recommendations. However, once we knew we had been typecast as cheap skates, and treated accordingly, we were gone. The choice of an inexpensive wine can be because of a number of factors. Sometimes, it's because you're there for the long haul. When you're treated badly for choosing it, you decide to take your long term patronage elsewhere. I share this review because I want to warn others of this snobbish establishment.
