Check your check [Moved from Site Talk]

We had a lovely dinner at Picholine in NYC last night, where we dine frequently. By the time we finished, it was late, and after a long meal and drinks and wine it would have been easy to sign the check without looking at it closely. Fortunately, my husband scrutinized the check and discovered that we had been charged for two prix fixe dinners PLUS two additional entrees and an appetizer. This error added nearly $100 to the total. The waiter corrected the amount as soon as it was brought to his attention but our experience reminded us to ALWAYS check the check.
