Have you sent food back to the kitchen? - Page 4

post #46 of 54
Most places that are really expensive usually serve food to a standard that sending it back would not be required. Except for in the country where I live, where food is insanely expensive and uniformly bad. ffffuuuu.gif

Why not just tell us the country you live in and save someone having to ask?

That was the last meal we had together before we lost 6 of the guys to some bastards sent over by DeBeers.

I had a bad experience in Milwaukee with some people when one of them wanted to send his sausage platter back. It was pretty bad and they told the waiter that they wanted something else. Honestly, the service was downright rude...they ended up trying to charge us for the dish and claimed we had eaten too much of it for it to be that bad (IIRC there were 3 different sausages and everyone at the table wanted to have an opinion on how bad they were and if they should be sent back, so everyone tried all 3 and said "nasty, send it back"...leaving a good amount of sausage consumed). Even the supervisor was a bitch about taking it off the bill

I think it was one of those places that has been around forever and sort of survives on historical reputation alone rather than the food or service being worthwhile.

Where was this place? I live in Milwaukee.

I had a fish & broccoli which I thought was au gratin. Turns out it was someone's chewing gum in a gooey cheesy consistency after being cooked.

Just tossed my napkin on the plate and said I was full, bring me another drink. This was me dining alone though.

EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW that's awful!

ONE time a few months ago I sent something back at a small italian restaurant in a little Northern California town. I felt pretty awkward about doing it. Something tasted rancid about the garlic in this pasta dish (I've eaten a lot of garlic in my time), and I was really hungry because I'd been driving all day. They were fine about bringing me a replacement, I really doubt they did anything to the food (it was probably half store-bought frozen stuff they were just heating up anyway), I tipped well.
