Unfortunately you are experiencing what is known as reverse supply and demand (at least it's known as that to me.) If I have a four top and a single, the four top gets better service (at least if I'm slammed.) Waiters tend to forget about their one tops and concentrate on the bigger tables. Why? $$$ If I'm getting $30 over here and $5 from you, the other table has a priority. Sorry, but that's how it works. You give me $20 before we start and you'll get great service. Otherwise, sit at the bar. The bartender has more time and is trapped behind the bar. A food bill is big money to him.
