Perhaps the all time worst customer service that I have ever received at any business of any kind.
I drove about 30 miles into Cleveland to use my Groupon that I purchased for this restaurant. $40.00 in dining purchased for $20.00. Now let it be known that I have worked in the Daily Deal world since Groupon only had 12 cities active.
After reviewing all of the Fine Print, I made a reservation for one through Open Table since the
restaurant has no one answering the phone during the day. I sent an email through their web site letting the restaurant know that I would be dining with the use of my purchased Groupon. Again no one to answer the phone!
When I walked into the restaurant I was told by the host that he did not think that I could use my Groupon. I asked why and he said he would get the manager. A young lady came out and told
me that I could not use the Groupon because I was dining alone. She said that there had to be another guest paying for their meal and they couldnt just honor the Groupon with no one else
buying anything! WHAT?!?!?!?!?! Then she blamed it on Groupon for not putting it in the deal?!?!?!
Nowhere on the Groupon, not in the description of the deal, nor in the Fine Print, did it state that was the how the deal was structured. I specifically asked this manager to show me on the Groupon where it said that or anything that even sorta, kinda hinted at that. She said it doesnt say that. So again I stated then you need to honor this Groupon that I purchased and drove almost an hour to use.
Now I have never been to this restaurant and was excited to try all of the steak that they are famous for. Perhaps I may have come back with a bunch of friends after a positive
experience but they in stead chose to save $20.00 by sending me away. What this ignorant or poorly trained manager failed to realize is the fact that I own three different businesses and work in
the Social Network world. Through Facebook alone I have access to over 50,000 people. Did she actually believe Id just go away?
So I called Groupon Customer Service. The CS rep was STUNNED by Brasas handling of
this. He looked up the deal and said there is absolutely no reason for them to have treated me the way that they did and absolutely should have honored the Groupon.
