Maggots in salad at restaurant. What would you have done?

I was on a first date at a restaurant in Tiburon, CA. It was a great-looking place on the warf and it was filled with people at peak hour. We took the ferry from SF to Tiburon. All was very romantic. We had reservations and were seated. Both of us placed our orders and when the salads came, mine had several maggots squirming and bopping up and down in the greens.

I waved the waiter over, and without a word or any drama nor creating a scene, I pointed to the maggots. The waiter smiled and said unapologeticaly : "It happens." My date looked at his salad, smiled at me and started to eat his salad.

What would you have said, expected or done?
What if you had friends over for dinner and this happened in your home...
would you have nonchalantly said: "It happens"?
