Bocconi... nice restaurant, great food, but... under par service‎

Last Tuesday we had dinner at Bocconi with a group of 6 people. Bocconi is a nice Italian restaurant, part of the 5-star Hotel Amigo adjacent to the Grand Market place in Brussels. The food was simply great - a wide selection of nice combinations, prepared with quality ingredients and very tasty (I had sole with Belgian endive and schrimp, calamares with artichokes as a starter, and black current & strawberry ice cream as desert). But the service was simply not up to par for this kind of restaurant - both from a quality and price point of view. Just a few examples... we had to order the cocktails twice, one of us was only offered wine after explicitely asking for it, one desert went missing - just like the coffee of another person. And I can't count how many different servers we got to see to take orders and present the food. The only reason to return is the food - but for this price you expect the service to be better than average !
