Assuming that the drain is installed correctly, I would run a snake down the drain to clean the obstruction. If you aren't comfortable with that, call a rooter company.

One other long shot: if it's a new drain that was installed with permits & inspected, the plumber would have plugged the drain to fill it with water (as part of the inspection). If it was 5:00 on Friday, the plug may have been overlooked. Drains can be plugged at a cleanout for testing.
