Noisy Restaurants: A painful experiance

Painter2Chef | Jul 29, 2008 12:01 PM

Twice in the last few weeks I have been to good restaurants with great food that have been so noisy that I couldn't participate in conversations with my fellow diners and in the end my ears actually hurt by the time the meal was completed.

It's a pity, but I will not be returning to these establishments in so much as a very nice meal has been turned into an unpleasant experience because restaurateurs will not spend what it takes to provide their customers with a pleasant dining experience at a reasonable noise level.

Most recent on the list of never to return; Voltaire, Umi Sake House, Olives Wine Bar.

Has anyone else had similar experiences? Care to share the names of offenders?
