We just came back from a lovely dinner at a local French restaurant. The menu is price fixed only for 3 courses. A number of the choices for the appetizers and entrees had additional charges ( such as for fois gras and lobster.) I ordered the Dover sole, which was a special this evening. When the bill came, there was an addition of $20 for the sole. When he told us the specials, the waiter did not mention the additional $20. I had not thought to ask if the specials were more $. We did not mention this when we graciously paid the bill. But I will think twice about going to this particular restaurant again. Is is customary for the waitstaff to mention the higher price? Or should I, the customer, have asked the prices?
Thanks for your input. Meagan
