just what is too loud??

in reference to the weird occurrence atBOULEY posts, does a restaurant party-patronhave a right to complain about a loud table??And is such a complaint always rude ornervy?? Are we dealing with a sports stadiumanalogy: anything goes noise wise and thereis no such thing as too boisterous because arestaurant is a place to have fun?? Should onealways leave it up to the manager/owner/host/maitre'd as to whether a quiet down is in order??Should that complaining party at Bouley haverequested a move to another section?? Shouldhe have been comped dessert?? Or is grin andbear it the only answer??
