Not About Food 53

Freezing restaurants! Please turn on the heat!

My husband and I went to a high end restaurant last weekend and had the Prix Fixe menu (The only choice for Valentines weekend unfortunately) selection @ $95 pp. (not including wine) But the restaurant was so cold I was literally shaking! Why do restaurants feel they can charge $100 a plate and leave the heat off? I was so uncomfortable I could not enjoy my meal. I asked the server if they had a heating problem and he told me that it was always cold and the manager never allows them to touch the thermostat. I told the server to inform the manager that we would not return if that was the case.

If anyone is a restaurant owner can you please tell me why would you allow the manager to make the choice of freezing the customer to save a few dollars and lose a lot more in repeat business.
