How do you go about complaining about food?

Are you snappy? Apologetic?

One thing I hate which falls into that passive aggressive side I think is "did you change the sauce?" Or "you add something to your dough?"

Yeah we've been open since end of WWII but this week I decided to add skittles and cranapples to the sauce.

Jesus just say if you think it sucks

I'm the overly apologetic type if there is a mistake. Just the beta in me Phone Post 3.0

Yeah, I put some of deez into thte sauce




DEEZ NUTS!!!

Dom, listen my family own Italian restaurants in southern California and sometimes my uncle tries new types of tomatoes... Depending on the quality and type of tomatoes the sauce can taste different.

When I'm out of NY, I usually say, hey you should come to NY and learn how to make real pizza. Even if I like it.

Ever since I saw the movie "waiting"  I learned not to fuck with people who serve my food.

It's because they know we didn't . Looks it's rare but I've heard it before

It is weird how apologetic people are in restaurants when returning something. Like the waitress is going to cook not to spit in it cause they were nice. It's like apologizing to homeless people when you don't have change

If I get bad food somewhere I just don't go back Phone Post 3.0

My old boss would take us to some of the most expensive resturants in the world, and he'd spend most of the night torturing the wait staff. One time I asked if he was worried about them spitting in his food or worse, and he goes, who cares, if I don't see them do it, it doesn't count.



Good attitude I guess.

No matter what, I am not sending it back and accepting anything as a replacement. Fuck that. That's when you eat the chefs spit, shit or sperm. I just won't finish and never eat there again or if it's l bad enough for me to complain then it jusy means im justifying why im leaving and not paying. Phone Post 3.0

Your old boss sounds like a dick, no doubt in my mind they fucked with his food, hopefully not yours!

I agree with this. But some people love to complain about food, even when there is nothing wrong with it.

 

My ex-GF's mother ordered prime rib once, and started ranting and raving that it was not rare enough, before she even cut it. The waiter said, well, let's take a look and she cut through it and it was literally raw inside.

I don't complain unless it's really bad. Like they should be ashamed that they actually served it.

If it's just bad, I don't go back.

However, if it's food that's supposed to be hot and I get it cold, I'm letting them know.

I'm a pussy and never say anything. If I can stomach it, I'll eat it. If there is something so wrong that I can't I'll just sit there quietly. Phone Post 3.0

Sending it back is akin to licking boogers off the wall of the bathroom stall. Especially if it's some chain shithole and the "chef" is some pimple-faced high school kid. I don't even go to those places any more cause they all fucking suck.

I only go to quality places that I know serve consistently excellent food. In other words, no chains.

If they fuck up once, I suck it up and chalk it up to a bad night. Happens again, I just don't go back. Simple as that. Phone Post 3.0

I've sent like one thing back ever. Got a red curry something at a Burmese place. I love curries--Indian, Thai, etc. This shit smelled and tasted like sweaty feet.

I asked the lady nicely to take it away. I did not ask for anything else or to not be charged.

She wanted to argue with me. "But dat what you order! Why you no like?!"

I was like "look, I know I ordered it. I thought I would like it. I don't. I will pay for it but please just take it away because the smell makes we sick."

Never went back. My dad owned a place growing up. If someone was polite and just didn't like something, we would make them something else. I didn't want anything else after that but they could have at least offered.

You just come out and say what the issue is and move on. Fuck apologizing. It wasn't my fault the kitchen is off their game, and being snappy or rude makes you look bad.

Ill send something back only if its clearly their fault. Ill ask the server if this is the way it comes or if this is normal and if it is I eat it. I'm not picky so I order things I've never tried all the time, if it ain't my thing that's my fault. Phone Post 3.0

This and if I send food back I'm don't want them to bring anything else. I'm not eating someone else pubs or snot. Phone Post 3.0
I'm telling you now if one of my cooks EVER did something to intentionally fuck my customers I would fire them and kick them in the balls. I'm fast food but when a complaint comes in they are high priority and moved to the front of the line. If they complain again my people know that's bad news for everyone involved so they usually take special care to make sure I don't have to make it for the third time Phone Post 3.0

This is the exact reason 90% of the time I wouldn't complain, because of touchy asshole cooks like yourself.

I have worked in the kitchens of restaurants and I know what can easily happen when a customer sends their food back.

I just won't go back.

I tell the waiter to send over the manager and very quietly let him know somethings wrong. I dont demand free shit or try to weasel out of paying. On a ten dollar meal you roll the dice and take your chances. Honestly though if my food is bad on my first visit I dont go back.
