Restaurant etiquette - to say - or not to say how it was after a bad meal

Not inedible, but each dish was heavy, oily, not pleasant. Nothing outright ruined, but each of us left knowing the food was poorly prepared and we did not enjoy the meal. Not the server's fault, so we tipped per the price. The server actually did not inquire as to how the food was - had he done so, I would have answered honestly, but it seemed gratuitous to volunteer my observation. I won't return, and as a person known as food-obsessive, I'll dis-recommend the place to people who ask me. Should I have said something? Similarly, if a dish has too much this or would be so much better with that - is that an observation ever worth sharing?
