Birthday - what should a restaurant do?

Radiothomas | Dec 11, 2006 02:06 AM

I'm wondering what people think a restaurant could/should do when you go there for your birthday (and let them know beforehand that you're coming on that day, or as you arrive at the latest). A restaurant here which shall remain unnamed recently did exactly diddly squat for myself and our party of four on my birthday... okay, yes, I am whinging a little bit. No cocktail, no Kir or Kir Royale, no even acknowledgement that there was a b-day. BTW, there was no opportunity for any kind of affirmation once dessert rolled around, since we had other plans at home for that part of the evening... but the restaurant also knew that beforehand.

fire away!
